Before And After: Veneers
Have you ever dreamed of the perfect smile – never having to worry about any unsightly chips, cavities or stains on your teeth and smiling anytime you want with great confidence? We can help that dream come true with veneers at Sky Dental Offices in Phoenix, Arizona.
You don’t have to go to a separate office to make this happen. We can handle all of your dental needs right in our offices including cosmetic dentistry. One great option for that perfect smile is to go with veneers which look like your natural teeth. With proper maintenance, veneers can last over 20 years.
Veneers are great options for covering imperfections. It is a thin cover which will be permanently fixed to the chosen teeth. You can address chips, breaks, cracks, discoloration, oddly shaped teeth and gaps.
One thing that people love about veneers is that they look natural. During the first visit, your dentist will let you know what to expect during the multiple appointments to get finished veneers.
There are two types of veneers. One is ceramic (laminate) veneers and the other is resin-based composite veneers. The American Dental Association gives more details on the options in one of their articles on veneers.
How Are Veneers Done?
Usually on the first appointment, your teeth chosen for veneers will be filed and shaped. Once part of your teeth are shaped, it is permanent, similar to when you have a tooth filed down for a crown. After shaping your teeth, a mold will be taken which will then be sent to a lab where your natural-looking veneers will be created.
You will leave the office with a set of bonds that won’t look as perfect as your finished veneers. This will provide you with a comfortable smile until your next appointment. It will take two to three weeks for your veneers to be completed at the lab.
At the veneer appointment, they will be permanently affixed to your teeth with a dental cement. It’s an easy and quick process. Your veneers will be tested for sturdiness and they will be flossed to make sure the proper amount of space is left for you to floss and brush your teeth. Great oral hygiene will be the key to having long-lasting veneers.
Best Pro For Veneers
The big pro to veneers is the fact that they are non-invasive with no surgery required. Unlike implants and dentures, veneers don’t require anything to secure them to your natural teeth beyond dental cement. This is a big advantage for many patients who want as little discomfort as possible.
