Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that completely covers the front portion of your teeth with incredibly thin layers of porcelain. Veneers are usually only placed on the teeth that are visible when you speak or smile.
Veneers are a popular treatment among celebrities and public figures. Advancements in dental technology have made veneers attainable for everyone, and they’ve become one of the leading cosmetic treatments in the nation.
Dental veneers can correct numerous cosmetic issues at once. Some of the more common dental concerns that lead people to choose veneers include:
Because veneers can correct more than one issue at once, they’re an excellent value as compared to having numerous separate treatments.
Getting a new set of dental veneers requires several trips to the office. During your initial visit Dr. Okoro examines your teeth and discusses how veneers can help you move closer to your cosmetic treatment goals.
If you decide veneers are right for you, the process begins with removing a small portion of your tooth enamel. This makes room for the new veneers to fit over your teeth.
Digital impressions or images are gathered to determine the exact size and shape of your teeth. This information is sent to the dental lab to guide the fabrication of your custom veneers.
A temporary set of veneers is placed to protect your teeth until the new set is ready. At that time you’ll return to have your veneers checked for fit before being cemented into place. This completes the process, and you’ll walk out with your new smile.
Because veneers require removing some of your natural tooth tissue, they’re considered a permanent treatment. While you can expect to enjoy 10-20 years of wear, even the best set of dental veneers will eventually need to be replaced through the same process outlined above.
