What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that permanently bond to the front of your teeth. They have translucent coloring, making them look just like your natural tooth enamel. The procedure gives you a seamless smile and a new level of confidence.

Am I a candidate for veneers?

Veneers can improve many oral health issues. You might be a candidate for veneers if your teeth are:

  • Cracked
  • Chipped
  • Stained or discolored
  • Crooked
  • Uneven
  • Misshapen
  • Widely spaced
  • Worn down

Veneers can also be beneficial for non-cosmetic issues, such as reinforcing damaged teeth or protecting them. 

How does the veneers procedure work?

Before your veneers procedure, your provider at Forrest Dental consults with you about your cosmetic goals. In addition, you have a comprehensive oral exam to ensure the health of your teeth and gums.

If you’re a candidate for veneers, the two of you develop a customized treatment plan that includes selecting the size, shape, and color of your veneers that best compliment your smile. Your choices can also affect the appearance of your facial features, skin tone, gums, and lips.

To begin your procedure, your dentist shaves a thin layer of enamel from your teeth and lightly buffs and reshapes your natural teeth to make room for your veneers. Most people can tolerate this part, but if requested, the Forrest Dental team can provide a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable.

Then, they take an impression of your mouth to create your veneers in a lab. You wear a set of temporary veneers until your permanent ones are made and ready for placement.

When your permanent veneers are complete, you come back into the practice for your dentist to test their placement and to apply a dental cement, making them permanent. At that time, adjustments can be made, making sure they fit comfortably.

Once your veneers are on permanently, you walk out the door with a new, confident smile.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers offer benefits because they’re:

  • Stain-resistant
  • Well-tolerated by your gum tissue
  • Natural-looking
  • Long lasting
  • Require a minimally invasive procedure
  • Safe and effective
  • Cost-effective

One of the best advantages of having veneers includes the beautiful smile you get to share with everyone.
