These days, there is no shortage of cosmetic dentistry services that can improve an imperfect smile. But if your teeth have so many flaws that need fixing, it can be difficult to decide where to even begin. Thanks to a treatment called veneers, the team at Brush Dental can give several of your teeth a complete makeover at the same time! If you’ve been dreaming of having a flawlessly gorgeous grin but have no idea where to start, we recommend calling our office to schedule a consultation and learn more about how veneers can help.
A veneer is a thin porcelain shell that resembles a fingernail in size and shape and fits over the entire front-facing surface of a tooth. Once a veneer has been bonded over your tooth, virtually all of its aesthetic imperfections disappear at once, including:
Each veneer is personalized to match the appearance of your natural smile, making them the ideal treatment to improve multiple aspects of your smile in one fell swoop.
The first step in the veneers process is having a consultation with either Dr. Kuan or Dr. Lam. They’ll examine your mouth, talk to you about the goals you have in mind for your smile, and whether veneers are the best way for you to achieve them. If so, then we can go ahead and schedule the first of the two appointments it will take to get veneers.
To begin with, we’ll prepare the teeth that will receive the veneers by shaving off a thin outer layer of enamel. That way, the veneers won’t look or feel bulky compared to the rest of your smile. Next, we capture impressions of your mouth to make a mold of your teeth, which will be used to create your veneers. We’ll send the mold to a partnered dental lab and place temporary veneers to protect your teeth in the meantime. You’ll return to our office in a few weeks, once the final veneers arrive at our office, to place them and instantly beautify your smile!
There’s a good reason why veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments currently available. Here are some of the benefits you can look forward to after getting veneers:
