The dental care specialists at Dental American Group are proud to offer custom-fit veneers that are designed to improve the overall appearance of your teeth. Veneers consist of wafer-like shells that are attached over the surface of a person’s teeth in order to enhance their appearance. More people than ever are choosing veneers as a cosmetic treatment option because of their simplicity and versatility.
Veneers have many uses, including:
- Making teeth appear whiter
- Fixing crooked and misshapen teeth
- Repairing teeth that are chipped or damaged
- Adjusting the size of teeth
Since veneers are ultra-thin, they are completely comfortable and virtually undetectable to others. Veneers are built using advanced materials that make them resistant to staining from beverages such as coffee and wine, as well as smoke from tobacco products. A set of veneers should last a decade or longer with proper care. Dental American Group offers patients both porcelain and composite veneers.
Installing a set of custom-fit veneers requires two visits to one of our clinics. The process starts by shaving off some of the enamel of the designated tooth. This allows the new veneer to properly fit on the tooth. Next, the dental care expert will take impressions of the tooth so that a customized veneer can be built. The custom veneer will have to be developed in a special dental laboratory, so the patient will be fitted with a temporary restoration until their veneer is ready.
Once the custom veneer is finished, the patient will return for their second visit and have the veneer installed. The patient will have the tooth cleaned and treated with etching gel so that the veneer can bond properly. Using a dental bonding agent, the veneer will be attached to the tooth. Once the process is complete, the patient will be provided with instructions on how to care of their customized veneer.
