Why Get Veneers for Teeth?

If you have teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or do not match the rest of your smile in any other way, dental veneers are a great solution. Veneers for a teeth are a simpler and more conservative solution than crowns. because they only cover the front of the teeth. Dental veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the fronts of problem teeth so that you can get that perfect smile.

Dental Veneers Procedure

  • The first step to getting veneers for teeth is creating dental veneers that are perfect for your smile. Your treatment will begin when you come into the office for a diagnosis and consultation. Dr. Alexander will examine your teeth and the two of you will discuss what you want your smile to look like. He will then prepare dental veneers that have been custom-made just for you.
  • Next, your teeth will need to be prepped for the placement of the dental veneers. Your dentist will carefully buff your teeth so that they will not become too thick once the veneers have been placed. At this point, you may be given temporary veneers to improve the appearance of your smile, while you wait for your permanent veneers.
  • Finally, Dr. Alexander will place the permanent veneers for teeth. He will check to make sure the dental veneers look great with your teeth, and adjust them as necessary. When they are ready, your dentist will clean your teeth with a bonding chemical. The veneers for teeth are then applied with a special cement and hardened with a light beam.
