Dental veneers are a fairly common cosmetic procedure that transforms the look of your teeth without replacing them, but more permanently than with whitening. Dental veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are made to perfectly cover the front of your teeth, thereby replacing their appearance with a set of whiter and straighter teeth that will function just like your teeth previous to having veneers.
The front of each tooth is shaved down and slightly roughened so that the new veneer sheet can rest perfectly on the tooth and so the adhesive can properly set. These changes to your teeth are permanent, but veneers can be replaced if they are chipped or broken. Veneers will last you years and can instantly improve the look of your smile without replacing any teeth.
Our team will perform a comprehensive oral exam analyzing your mouth and teeth. The area will be numbed with a local anesthetic to alleviate the pain.
Your dentist will drill into your tooth in order to remove the infected pulp. The pulp will be sealed with gutta percha to seal off the canal after cleaning and removing the pulp in its entirety. Remember, always make follow-up appointments to accelerate the healing process!
If you are looking to instantly transform your smile in a more permanent way, the veneers might be the solution for you. These porcelain covers are a popular option in lieu of braces and regular whitening treatments.
