Dental veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are custom-made for your teeth. They are made of strong porcelain material and are bonded to the fronts of your teeth. At Spera Dental, veneers are custom-made, so they will fit perfectly in your mouth. When in place, they will look just like natural teeth.
The Procedure for Veneers
A dental veneer is custom-crafted to fit over your existing teeth. Your dentist in Tucson, AZ will help you determine which type of veneer is best suited for you. A dental veneer is placed throughout two appointments. At the first visit, your dentist will prepare your teeth for the veneer. Your enamel will be trimmed to fit the veneer. An impression will be made of your teeth and sent to a dental lab, where your veneer will be crafted. At your second appointment, your dentist will place your veneer over your teeth and secure it in place.
What Types of Issues Can Veneers Fix?
Veneers can be used to correct discoloration. This discoloration may be caused by any number of factors, including teeth grinding, staining foods and drinks, and others. Veneers can be used to correct these minor, yet stubborn, discolorations.
If your teeth are crooked, veneers can be used to improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers can correct minor cosmetic damage, such as chips, cracks, and discoloration, as well as more severe damage like misalignment.
Chipped or Broken Teeth
A veneer can make broken teeth look whole again. It can also fix teeth that suffer from small chips or gaps. Veneers are thin shells that are placed over teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers are bonded in place, so they cannot be removed.
Veneers can conceal a variety of cosmetic issues with teeth. One of the most common issues that veneers can conceal is small amounts of tooth decay. Small cavities can be concealed with composite resin. Veneers can conceal misshapen teeth, worn down, cracked, or improperly aligned.
If you have gaps between your teeth, then veneers are a great choice! They can make your teeth appear more even and uniform.
Gaps happen when a tooth is lost or pulled, but they can also be caused by overcrowding. If your teeth protrude, this can cause them to wear down. When this occurs, they may become shorter and narrower.
Gaps are easily fixed with veneers. They are thin shells of porcelain that are placed on top of the teeth. They are custom-made for your smile, which means that they blend in well with your other teeth.
