Discover what dental veneers could do to fully transform your smile.
Have you always wished that you had a smile that was as beautiful as some of your favorite celebrities? Well, now the dream can become a reality with dental veneers. Dental veneers have become such a popular way to revamp and makeover a smile to improve the overall color, shape and length of one or more teeth. Our Cambridge, MD, cosmetic dentists Dr. Hiers and Dr. Morrow offer up the information you want about getting dental veneers.
Dental veneers are very thin yet durable shells, often made from porcelain, that are bonded to the front of your teeth to make changes to the overall shape and color of your smile. You may choose to cover a misshapen, discolored or chipped tooth with a dental veneer or you may choose to get a full set of veneers for a completely transformed smile. The choice is up to you!
Once one of our Cambridge, MD, dentists have determined that dental veneers are the best option for meeting your smile goals, then getting your new smile can finally begin. Here are some of the steps involved in getting dental veneers:
In order for veneers to not look bulky when bonded to the front of your teeth, some enamel will need to be removed from the front surface. Enamel removal is minimal (usually no more than 0.5mm).
Since each dental veneer is specially made to fit a specific tooth, we want to make sure that we have the exact measurements so a dental lab will create restorations that offer the proper fit. In order to do this, we will need to take impressions of your teeth. A dental lab will use this model of your smile to make your very own set of veneers.
Attaching the Veneers
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. Now that your veneers have been designed, they are ready to be placed over the front of your teeth to revamp your smile. Often times, teeth are cleaned and then etched with a special liquid to ensure that the bonding resin sticks to the tooth properly. Then the veneer is placed over the front of the tooth and a specialized laser hardens the bonding resin in place. Now you have your brand new smile.
