Veneers Q & A
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that normally go on the front surfaces of your front teeth. They provide a natural, attractive look. Men and women usually get veneers to cover teeth that are misshapen, chipped, or discolored and can’t be whitened. Teeth that have extensive enamel erosion are also good candidates for veneers.
Veneers are bonded to your teeth, so they are permanent. They are also highly stain-resistant, so you can eat and drink what you want after getting veneers. Veneers usually last a minimum of 10 years.
What is the procedure like when you get veneers?
First, your Lake Forest Dental Center provider takes a digital X-ray of your teeth. Then, your provider removes a small amount of your teeth’s surface to make room for the veneers. Finally, they take impressions of your teeth and send them to a laboratory to create your custom veneers.
While you are waiting for your veneers, your dentist will give you temporary veneers, which will allow you to see how your new veneers will look. Once your veneers arrive, your doctor will bond them to your teeth with a resin cement to hold them permanently in place.
How will I know if veneers are right for me?
The dentists at Lake Forest Dental Center are experts in cosmetic dentistry. They will discuss the pros and cons of veneers and help you determine if veneers are the best option based on the condition of your teeth and your desired outcome.
In some cases, other options might work for you, such as orthodonture for a gap in your teeth or whitening for staining. The team at Lake Forest Dental Center always seeks the optimal and most cost-effective treatment, so you will never be encouraged to have a treatment that may not be the best choice for you.
Veneers are a safe and fast way to treat chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth. To find out if veneers are right for you, book an appointment at Lake Forest Dental Center online or over the phone today.
