WE RESTORE SMILES
Dental veneers are coverings made of thin porcelain that are custom-made to fit over your teeth, improving how they look and function.
Veneers cover the front of your teeth, masking cosmetic flaws like:
Veneers will either mimic your natural teeth in color, shine, and feel, allowing them to fit seamlessly into your mouth, or give you a whole new look. They are bonded to your natural teeth creating a very strong and beautiful result. Most people who want veneers want to change the shape, position, and color of their front teeth to look like they’ve always wanted their smile to look. The number of teeth included depends on a good evaluation of your smile and bite. Dr. Jane will be pleased to show you how to achieve the results you want.
The start of your new confident smile begins at Heritage Comfort Dental for a cosmetic smile consultation. The expert team has years of cosmetic dental experience and can help you learn how veneers can help you achieve your dream smile. The consultation may involve an examination for any pre-existing conditions that may need attention before she places the veneers, possible X rays, and photos. Your dentist also works with you on setting dental wellness goals to ensure the surrounding teeth and gums are healthy in the long term.
Veneers typically involve two appointments. The first appointment is to prepare the teeth. It may involve smoothing or any reshaping in any areas that will be necessary for creating an ideal smile design. An impression will be taken at this appointment, and temporary veneers will be placed while the dental laboratory artist is creating your veneers.
The second appointment will be to try in, approve, and permanently bond the veneers to your teeth.
With proper dental hygiene, for example, daily brushing and daily flossing, and regular check-ups, veneers can last for decades. Veneers should be cleaned with a non-abrasive toothpaste. Your dentist at Heritage Comfort Dental will assess the condition of your veneers at your annual exams. If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth while sleeping, you may consider getting a nighttime guard to prevent damaging your veneers.
To ensure veneers match teeth when they look their best, many patients have their teeth whitened before having a veneer applied to ensure the veneer matches perfectly.
