What are veneers?

Veneers are thin shells made up of either porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to your teeth. Veneers are able to change the appearance of the smile by only replacing the front of the teeth.

Why Should I Consider Porcelain Veneers?

There is a growing demand for elective esthetic dental procedures, such as porcelain veneers. Smiles Dental Group offers porcelain veneer procedures for patients who desire this elective procedure.

Our general dentists will help you to decide whether you need dental crowns or porcelain veneers, depending on different factors such as your bite, and the condition of your teeth. Veneers can help you to recreate symmetry to teeth that have worn-out edges. Veneers can help reduce the gaps in between teeth (diastemas) or if you have smaller teeth than usual. If you are looking to enhance the appearance of your teeth, veneers may be the treatment of choice for you.

What Are The Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers?

The procedure for dental veneers can help the appearance of teeth and can also help to protect them from damage.

An advantage that they have over dental crowns is that a lesser portion of the tooth needs to be reduced and thus is more conservative.

Smiles Dental Group can accomplish several things using dental veneers. We can use veneers to close gaps in between teeth, cover dark stains, make teeth even in length, and help create a more symmetrical, uniform-looking smile.

We also use dental veneers for restorations. So, whether you have broken, chipped or cracked teeth, we can restore them with the help of porcelain veneers. 

When patients visit our clinics, we conduct a thorough oral checkup to determine if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers. If you are a suitable candidate, we will take an impression of your teeth. Porcelain veneers will be custom-made to fit your teeth in a lab. Veneers will match or complement the color, shape, and size of your teeth.

What Are The Requirements For Veneers?

Smiles Dental Group will first prepare your tooth by removing a small portion of the outer enamel to prepare for veneers. This process is essential for the proper fitting of the dental veneer. After preparing the tooth, we secure a temporary restoration with the help of temporary cement. As soon as your permanent veneer is ready, we remove the temporary veneer and fix the permanent veneer, ensuring a proper fit.
