Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that your dentist permanently bonds over the front side of your teeth. They’re typically made of porcelain, which can be made to mirror the shade of your natural tooth enamel perfectly. This enables them to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth and give you a smile that’s equal parts beautiful and natural-looking.
Veneers cover up the entire front side of your teeth, effectively masking any cosmetic imperfections, such as:
Veneers are an excellent alternative to more costly and invasive dental procedures used for cosmetic purposes.
Veneers have many benefits, including:
More than anything, however, veneers provide you with a beautiful smile that’ll boost your self-confidence. Also, veneers are sturdy and durable enough not to limit what foods you can eat. For the most part, you can continue eating whatever foods you like without having to worry about cracking or damaging your new veneers. However, it’s still a good idea to be cautious with hard foods such as candies.
Getting your new veneers first begins with a consultation at Genesis Dental. There, you’ll discuss your cosmetic goals with your dentist, who helps you select a size, shape, and shade for your veneers.
Once you’ve decided on the aesthetics, your dentist makes room for your veneers by removing a very thin layer of enamel from your teeth. Once your teeth are prepared, your dentist takes detailed impressions and sends these impressions off to an outside lab where your veneers are custom-designed to fit you comfortably.
Completing a new set of veneers typically takes one or two weeks. When your veneers are ready, you’ll return to the office for a fitting with your dentist. During this visit, your dentist checks that your permanent veneers fit comfortably and look great, then permanently bonds them to your teeth with dental cement.
