Porcelain veneers may be the ideal solution if your teeth are discolored, worn, misaligned, or damaged. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the flaws in your teeth. Veneers can completely transform the appearance of your teeth and smile. It is an excellent alternative to crowns in the treatment of a wide variety of dental conditions. Veneers, like most dental restorations, are not permanent and may eventually need to be replaced at some point. They are extremely durable and will last for many years, providing you with a beautiful, long-lasting smile.
At Gateway Dentistry, we use them to enhance the look of:
Veneers are typically applied over the course of two visits, with little or no anesthesia being required. To prepare the teeth, the surface is lightly buffed and shaped to facilitate the veneer’s thickness. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.
A couple of weeks later, the veneers are bonded in place.
*Brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will help your new veneers last longer.
