What are veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells custom-designed for every person who gets them. The dentist bonds the shells to the front surface of teeth that need to be hidden. Veneers are supposed to look just like your natural teeth. They match the color, size, and shape of your other natural teeth so no one even notices you're wearing them. Veneers fix imperfections such as:
- Uneven or worn teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Minimal crookedness
- Misshapen or overlapping teeth
Not everyone is a good candidate for veneers. Severe gaps and overcrowdedness may need more extreme interventions, like braces.
If you are a good candidate, the veneers selected for you will match the rest of your teeth, are made of stain-free, durable porcelain. One of the many advantages of veneers is the minimal dental preparation required before applying veneers.
Before applying the porcelain veneers, your Lawrenceville dentist removes a small amount of tooth enamel from each tooth's surface. This is an irreversible process, so make sure you discuss this with your dentist before the procedure. d, usually less than a millimeter. This removal gives space for veneers to comfortably bond to the surface of your teeth, avoiding protrusions and allowing a better fit.
Your dentist uses light-sensitive resin and a special dental light to adhere the veneers and cement them onto the surface of your natural teeth.
