If you have numerous cosmetic concerns about your smile, you can see dramatic improvements with dental veneers. Dental veneers transform your teeth in just one treatment for a lifelong gorgeous smile.
Dental veneers are very thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the surface of the teeth to change their length, shape, color, or size. They can be a viable solution for teeth that are broken or chipped, worn down, discolored, misaligned, irregularly shaped, or uneven. As you can see, dental veneers can solve a range of concerns in just one treatment!
Dental veneers can change your appearance, boost your self-confidence, and give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Dental veneers are considered a permanent form of treatment, so your DC Dental Spa dentist will review all your options with your prior to your procedure.
To prepare your tooth for a dental veneer, your DC Dental Spa dentist will remove a very small amount of enamel from the surface of your natural tooth. Next, an impression or model of the tooth is made, and the veneers are custom-made to match the color and the look of your natural teeth.
Once your custom dental veneer is ready, your DC Dental Spa dentist will examine its color and fit and trim the veneer to ensure it’s comfortable and attractive. Your natural tooth will be cleaned, polished, and gently etched to facilitate the bonding process. Next, a special cement will be applied to the veneer, which is then placed on your natural tooth. After your dentist properly positions the veneer, a special light is applied to it to cure the cement. Finally, the dentist will evaluate your bite and complete any necessary final adjustments.
Dental veneers are a natural-looking solution to many dental problems, and the porcelain material is long-lasting and stain resistant.
You can even choose the color of your new veneers to create a brighter smile. Dental veneers are less invasive than many other treatment options, and they don’t require extensive alterations to your natural teeth.
With proper care that includes regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups, veneers can last for many years. Following good oral hygiene practices is important to keeping your veneers looking great, but in general, they don’t require any special care.
