One of the most rewarding treatments we provide as dentists is when we correct a person’s front teeth to give them a beautiful smile.
There are many treatments we may use to achieve a better smile, including tooth whitening, minor orthodontics (straightening), aesthetic recontouring (smoothing the teeth), gingival recontouring, microabrasion, and cosmetic bonding with white filling material. In many cases we have to bond custom-made porcelain facings to the teeth, called veneers.
Why do we often choose veneers over other treatments?
How many teeth do I need to treat?
Every case is different. Cases range from treating just the two upper front teeth, to treating the front ten teeth top and bottom. And in many cases we will veneer some teeth, and use other treatments on other teeth in the same case. Again, this is something to discuss with the dentist.
What are the veneers made out of?
What is the procedure?
When you return, the veneers are tried in and any minor adjustments made. Then the veneers and the teeth are treated with special chemicals and the veneers are bonded to the tooth surface.
How will I know what my result will look like?
Aesthetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers, are only done after careful planning and consultation. Talk to one of our dentists and discuss what treatment might be right for you.
