Veneers are thin, custom-made shells bonded to the teeth's front surface to improve the latter’s appearance. At Burba Dental Partners, we use veneers that are made from tooth-colored materials such as porcelain or composite resin. Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that can address various aesthetic concerns, including discoloration, chipped or worn teeth, misalignment, and gaps between teeth. Veneers are designed to mimic the natural appearance of teeth and are customized to match the surrounding teeth's color, shape, and size. They can enhance a smile's aesthetics by improving the teeth's color, shape, size, and alignment.
The Procedures for Veneers
The process of getting veneers involves several steps. It usually begins with a consultation with a dentist or cosmetic dentist where the patient's goals and expectations are discussed. During the treatment, a small amount of enamel is removed from the front surface of the teeth to create space for the veneers. An impression of the prepared teeth is then taken, and the veneers are custom-made in a dental laboratory.
Once the veneers are ready, they are bonded to the teeth using a special adhesive. Our dentist will ensure proper fit and make any adjustments for a natural-looking result.
Veneers offer several benefits, including improving the color, shape, and alignment of teeth, as well as their overall appearance. They can provide a long-lasting and durable solution for cosmetic dental concerns, and with proper care, veneers can last for many years.
The Benefits of Veneers
Veneers are designed to enhance the overall aesthetics of the smile. They can effectively address various cosmetic concerns, such as tooth discoloration, stains, chipped or worn teeth, misshapen teeth, gaps between teeth, and minor misalignment. Veneers can provide a natural-looking, uniform, and symmetrical appearance to the teeth, resulting in a beautiful smile.
Veneers are custom-made to suit a patient’s unique dental characteristics. They can be customized in color, shape, size, and even translucency to match the surrounding natural teeth and achieve the desired outcome. This allows for a personalized and natural-looking result that blends seamlessly with the rest of the smile.
Veneers made of porcelain are highly resistant to staining. Porcelain has a smooth, non-porous surface that resists the absorption of external stains from food, beverages, and tobacco. This means that veneers can maintain their original color and remain stain-free for a long time with proper care.
One of the most significant benefits of veneers is their positive impact on an individual's self-confidence and self-esteem. By addressing cosmetic concerns and enhancing the smile's appearance, veneers can give patients renewed confidence in their social interactions, personal relationships, and professional settings.
The process of getting veneers is relatively minimally invasive. It typically requires minimal tooth preparation, and the placement of veneers does not involve extensive surgical procedures.
