How Are Dental Veneers Placed?

By now, you have most likely heard of Dental Veneers in Lakeview, which are used to completely cover the fronts of teeth that have minor imperfections. For example, they are most often used to cover up discoloration, chips or cracks on the teeth, and they can be used to make mildly misaligned teeth appear straight again. Surprisingly, a cosmetic dental treatment this great only takes two appointments to perfect. Here is what your dentist will do for you.

At your first appointment, your dentist will begin by ensuring that you are a good candidate for this treatment. He will ensure that your teeth are generally healthy and that you do not need any fillings or similar treatments before beginning. He will also ensure that you have enough enamel so that when he grinds a bit of it off to make room for the veneers, you will not have major discomfort. Next, he will take molds of your teeth so that each veneer is custom-made for you.

As you wait for your second appointment, your veneers will be specially made in a laboratory. At your final appointment, each one will be matched to your tooth, filed down if necessary and glued to the front of the correct tooth. The dentist will then apply special blue light to harden the glue and permanently affix the veneers to your teeth.

Dental Veneers in Lakeview are color-matched to look great with your skin tone and to ensure that your completed smile looks amazingly natural. Once you have them placed on your teeth, you will need to use veneers for the rest of your life. However, you will need to have them replaced every 10 to 15 years.
