What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are placed over the front surface of the teeth in order to mask imperfections. This durable, natural-looking material is able to conceal a single damaged tooth or a mouthful of cosmetic flaws. Usually, veneers are used to address teeth that are chipped, gapped, misaligned, misshapen, discolored, undersized, and more!
The Process of Getting Veneers
In general, it takes two appointments to place your veneers. During your first visit, Dr. Chougule will prepare your teeth by filing down a minimal portion of your enamel to ensure the veneers will lay flat against the line of your smile. Once your teeth have been prepped, we’ll take impressions to send off to the dental lab and place temporary veneers while your final ones are being crafted. In a few weeks, you can return to the practice where your veneers will be adhered to the teeth. Then you can show off your new and improved pearly-whites!
The Benefits of Veneers
There are numerous benefits you can expect to experience when you get your veneers. Here are just some of them:
- Natural appearance: The dental porcelain used to make veneers appears just like natural tooth enamel.
- Quick process: Veneers can be placed in as little as two appointments.
- Permanent whitening: Veneers are more resistant to staining than natural tooth enamel, so you won’t need to worry about discoloration from dark pigmented foods or beverages.
- Long-lasting: When cared for properly, veneers can last upwards of 15 years before needing to be replaced.
