Veneers are thin “covers” of porcelain that are applied to the front surface of a tooth to correct cosmetic issues so your smile looks beautiful, natural, and healthy. Porcelain veneers are durable, and they’re designed to perfectly blend in with your natural teeth.
Veneers have many applications in dentistry, correcting the appearance of an array of cosmetic issues, like:
Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, helping people enjoy beautiful, natural-looking, picture-perfect smiles.
Veneer procedures usually take two office appointments.
During your first appointment, Dr. Singh prepares your tooth for the veneer by removing a small amount of the tooth surface material. This step ensures your veneer is level with the surfaces of the neighboring teeth so the veneer blends in.
Once the tooth is prepared, Dr. Singh takes an impression of the tooth, sending it to a dental lab that specializes in high-quality dental restorations. He’ll also select the right shade for your veneer.
Before you leave, Dr. Singh places a temporary veneer on your tooth to protect it.
At your second appointment, Dr. Singh removes the temporary veneer and places the permanent veneer on your tooth, attaching it with a strong bonding agent, then buffing it for a natural look.
No. Porcelain veneers are very durable and you can care for your veneer with regular brushing and flossing, combined with routine dental visits and cleanings.
Although veneers are very strong, they can be damaged, just like a natural tooth. To prevent chips and cracks, avoid biting or chewing on hard foods like ice or hard candy, and never use your teeth as prying tools.
At Sunny Smiles Dentistry, we understand that the cost of even the most basic dental care may be prohibitive for some of our patients. However, we believe that no patient should have to forgo dental treatment because cost is a concern. We offer convenient financing vendors and payment options so that even the most advanced dentistry treatments are within the reach of each of our patients. We also make it a point to fully inform patients of the cost of treatment before we begin a procedure, so patients will never suffer "sticker shock" when they receive their bill.
