Deep stains and minor chips on the teeth in your smile can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. If you want a bright and smooth smile you should talk to your dentist about being fitted with dental veneers.

The veneers are actually thin porcelain shells that are custom crafted in a lab to fit over the face of the teeth in your smile. The porcelain material can be color matched to any shade you desire, thus giving you back a youthful, blemish free smile.

The process for being fitted for veneers requires two separate procedures. It’s important to make sure that the teeth in question are all healthy and have sufficient enamel to anchor the veneers safely. This usually involves a cursory inspection of your mouth along with a few x-rays. Next your dentist will create an impression of your teeth to be sent to a lab, which will create your new dental veneers.

The second procedure involves your dentist removing a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth in your smile. This will also prepare the surface to allow the cement to make a firm hold. They will then cement your veneers in place. With proper care and maintenance your veneers can provide you with an appealing bright white smile for many years to come.
