From stains left by dark-colored beverages to small chips caused by trauma to the mouth, there are all kinds of imperfections that might appear on your teeth over time. If there are several flaws that leave you feeling embarrassed about your grin, Dr. Bui can often address them all at once with the help of personalized, long-lasting veneers! This is an excellent option for patients who want to make extensive improvements to their smiles. To learn more about this cosmetic treatment, reach out to us today.
A veneer is essentially a thin shell for the front of your tooth. It’s normally made out of porcelain, which is a stain-resistant material that can be customized to blend in with the rest of your smile. There are also ceramic veneers that don’t require as much shaping of your natural tooth, meaning they let you preserve more of your enamel.
Our team can use veneers to hide discoloration, minor dental damage, small gaps, and other imperfections simultaneously. The number of veneers you need depends on the changes you want to make; some patients only get one veneer to correct a single tooth while others need a full set of veneers to enhance all of the teeth that are visible when they smile.
First, you’ll need to schedule a consultation at our office. Dr. Bui will ask about your smile goals and review your treatment options. If you decide that veneers are the best choice for your grin, the next step is to prepare the teeth in question. A small amount of enamel will be removed so that the veneers won’t look too bulky once they’re in place.
After finishing the necessary preparations, we will take impressions of your smile, which will then be sent to a dental lab where expert ceramists will design and create veneers that are the right shape, size, and color for your unique grin. You’ll be given temporary veneers to wear while your permanent ones are being worked on. Once the final veneers arrive, we will schedule one last appointment to bond them to your teeth.
