Veneers are cosmetic solutions that may be recommended for those who are interested in restoring the color and appearance of their teeth. They are used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and flexibility that is comparable to natural tooth enamel.
Veneers can be used to:
- Re-shape teeth
- Improve the look of your teeth due to stains
- Close gaps between teeth
- Fix teeth that are chipped, fractured, crooked or broken
Veneers are custom-made to fit over your natural teeth. The foundation of your natural teeth must be strong and healthy in order to be a candidate. Results from veneers can be very drastic, and instantly improve the appearance of your smile. Since veneers are individually created for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, veneers can also resist stains from coffee, tea and cigarette smoke.
Veneer preparation sometimes involves the removal of a small amount of tooth structure. However, here at Smiles of Aurora we strive to be as minimally invasive as possible in order to save as much natural tooth structure as we can. After preparing a tooth an impression is taken and sent to the lab to fabricate the custom veneers. During this time, temporary veneers are placed on your teeth to ensure you like the look of your final smile.
Once your permanent veneers arrive, they are bonded to your teeth. Veneers are very durable and can last for years when cared for properly. Continue brushing, flossing and rinsing, as well as keeping up with regular professional cleanings to obtain optimal oral care.
