An Introduction To Veneers

 

Having cracked, stained, misaligned, or discolored teeth can detract from your appearance and make you feel uncomfortable in social situations. Veneers are one tool for correcting these problems. Keep reading to learn more about this simple solution.

The Basics
dental veneers in houston tx | Royal Dental Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They can be used to cover stains and discolorations and they can also improve the shape, length, or size of the tooth. They can fix gaps between teeth and improve the appearance of your overall smile.

The Procedure
The procedure to attach veneers to your teeth is relatively simple. First you’ll meet with your dentist to determine what is best for you. In some cases patients will need a full set of veneers applied to the top and bottom rows of teeth. In other cases, veneers may only be needed in specific places.

Once you and your dentist have decided what is best your teeth will be cleaned and an impression of them will be made. The impression is sent to a lab where custom veneers will be created just for you.

Once your custom veneers are ready, you’ll have them bonded to your teeth. In order for them to completely bond to your teeth, a very tiny amount of enamel will be removed. Then bonding resin and a curing light will be used to attach and set the veneers to your teeth. After they’ve been bonded, they’ll be polished and shaped to give them the finishing touch.

The Benefits Of Choosing Veneers
There are many benefits associated with veneers. Some of these benefits include:

  • Veneers cover stains and give you whiter, brighter, more attractive teeth.
  • Veneers are customized to create a very natural and individualized look.
  • Veneers are very stain resistant.
  • Veneers are durable and can last for 10-15 years.
  • Veneers can be applied without making any significant changes to the structure of your teeth.
