At Kirby Dentistry, we offer veneers, thin shells, usually made of porcelain or resin composite, designed to cover the front side of your teeth to improve their appearance. They are frequently used to close gaps between teeth or cosmetically enhance your smile's appearance.
Because they are fabricated individually for each patient, they can be made to look as natural as possible and match the color and shape of your existing teeth for a seamless look. Thanks to their lifelike appearance, they are also often used in smile makeover cases to cover multiple aesthetic flaws simultaneously.
The Procedure for Veneers
The procedure for applying veneers is minimally invasive and is accomplished in two office visits. Before your visits, our dentist will take X-rays of your teeth to ensure no underlying issues need to be addressed.
Once these issues are addressed, our dentist will prepare your natural teeth for veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from the front of each tooth to make space for the veneer to fit onto your tooth. Your dentist will then take impressions of each tooth to the lab, where your veneers will be custom-made. These detailed impressions ensure that the size and shape of your veneers are just right. When you return for your second visit, your dentist will cement the custom-made veneers to the fronts of your teeth.
The Benefits of Veneers
Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that attach to the fronts of your existing teeth. They can reshape your smile, close gaps between your teeth, hide stains and discolorations, and provide an even texture to damaged enamel. Because they’re made from durable porcelain, they last for years with proper care.
Veneers offer several benefits that make them a popular cosmetic dental treatment. Unlike crowns or braces, which can take weeks or months to complete fully, veneers only take two visits to the dentist. The dentist will only need to slightly alter your natural teeth before permanently bonding them to the surface of your teeth with a powerful adhesive. This strong bond ensures that your veneers remain securely in place for years.
Veneers won’t stain the way your natural teeth do, so you won’t have to worry about whitening treatments regularly. They’re also very resistant to daily wear and tear. This makes them an excellent investment in your oral health. They’ll help improve the appearance of your smile and your self-confidence.
