What Are Dental Veneers?
Just like a veneer finish that can go over wood furniture, a dental veneer is an artificial covering that goes over the natural tooth to give it a different look. It is applied to the visible part, the front surface of your tooth. However, unlike furniture veneer, the material used for your dental veneers reflects light just like real tooth enamel. In fact, it is often difficult for anyone to tell which teeth have been treated and which are completely natural.
The Process of Getting Veneers
After meeting with Dr. Boyles and creating your treatment plan, let’s say you want to move forward. First, the teeth need to be prepared for the veneers, which entails removing about 0.5mm of enamel from the front surface. You’ll be numb during this process, so you should feel comfortable during this part of the process.
Then, we’ll take impressions of your prepped teeth and send them to our lab, where your veneers will be crafted. Before you leave, we’ll attach temporary veneers until your custom ones are finished, at which time you’ll come back in to have them bonded in place.
The Benefits of Veneers
In addition to looking realistic, veneers come with several advantages over other treatments, namely:
- They last around 10 to 15 years with basic maintenance.
- They are more resistant to stains than enamel, which means it’ll take longer for discoloration to set back in.
- They are durable and can withstand a normal, healthy diet.
- They are easy to take care of with daily brushing and flossing—along with regular checkups here at Boyles General Dentistry.
- They can be customized to any mouth, any number of teeth, and any coloration you need.
