Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are thin, and custom-made materials that are used to cover the front surfaces of teeth in order to improve their look. Veneers are shell-like additions to the teeth that can be adjusted to your preference in terms of shape, shade, length, and more.
If you are looking for a change in your smile, dental veneers may be an option for you to get the appearance you want. They are a common alternative for those who have chipped teeth, a gap between their teeth, or teeth that are misshapen. Here at Keizer Family Dental, we offer different varieties of dental veneers that will surely enhance your smile. Our dentist is at your service to determine what is best for you.
How To Know If You Need Veneers
Dental veneers may be required in a variety of situations. If you have aesthetic concerns that you wish to address, veneers are the way to go. Veneers can correct somewhat misaligned teeth, discolored teeth, and even chipped teeth. Our dentist will gladly discuss veneers with you and assist you in deciding whether or not you should have them. Veneers can assist with a variety of difficulties, depending on the individual.
Procedure for Getting Veneers
If our dentists suggest a dental veneer treatment, here are some steps that you need to expect when you visit our clinic. In the first step, we aim to assess your teeth and do pre-procedure steps to ensure that your teeth will benefit from this treatment. X-Rays, imprints, and another additional processes may be done. Safety and aesthetics are our priority. Make sure to schedule an appointment with our dentist so we can continue with your treatment.
After the first appointment, your next visit will be about preparing your tooth for veneers enhancement. Our dentist may opt to remove some enamel. This process needs to be done to ensure that the veneer will perfectly fit when placed in front of your original teeth. After the teeth have been shaped, a model or imprint will be conducted to lead the next process, making your permanent veneer. The timeframe allotted for this step is about two to four weeks, depending on your case.
We will notify you when your set of veneers is ready. You may come to our office after we have contacted you for the final fitting of the veneers. Our dentist will fit and temporarily place the veneer in front of your tooth to check if it fits well and is the most appropriate color. If there is a chance that the veneer does not fit well, our dentists will surely enhance it more to make it the perfect fit for you.
