What Are Dental Veneers?
If you’re embarrassed by chipped, stained, or gapped teeth, you may be a candidate for veneers. A veneer is a thin shell that’s bonded to the front side of a tooth, covering any imperfections to enhance its color, size, and shape. Applying veneers to the teeth visible when smiling provides drastic results by correcting several flaws using one minimally invasive procedure.
Dr. Cher will examine your mouth and learn more about your goals to ensure veneers are right for you. They are often recommended to treat:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Abnormally shaped teeth
- Slightly gapped teeth
- Inconsistent tooth surfaces
Your teeth and gums must be healthy before any elective procedures, including porcelain veneers.
The Process of Getting Veneers
After any preparatory treatments, you will be scheduled for the first phase of your procedure. Dr. Cher will clean your teeth before lightly etching their surfaces to remove a small amount of enamel. This is necessary for your veneers to sit flush on your teeth for a stronger bond.
After your cosmetic dentist in Houston has prepped your teeth, she will take an impression of your mouth. The information is sent to the dental lab, where they’ll craft your veneers with the utmost precision, which can take a couple of weeks. In the meantime, Dr. Cher will attach temporary veneers to protect your teeth while you wait. It also allows you to “try on” your new smile.
After the dental lab sends your veneers back to our office, you’ll return for your final appointment. Your temporary restorations are removed and your final veneers are bonded to your teeth. You’ll walk out of the office with a dazzling smile that can last for a decade or longer with the right care, like brushing and flossing. Dr. Cher will explain how to best care for your veneers to get the most out of your investment.
