Are you searching for a perfect-looking smile? Then dental Veneers might be the best treatment option for you. Visit our office at Lorain, OH, to meet your dentist, Dr. Jennifer Robb, and discuss the pros and cons of dental veneers.
What are dental veneers?
Dental Veneers are thin shells that are made out of tooth-colored Porcelain. These shells are used to cover the front surface of your teeth.
What are the dental problems that are treated with veneers?
Dental veneers can treat different teeth conditions. They can also fix one tooth or more, depending on your needs. The following are some conditions that can be fixed with veneers:
- Misaligned, deformed, or broken teeth
- Darkened teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
What are the steps of the procedure?
To get your veneers, you will need a consultation, preparation, and application of the veneers. Your Lorain, OH, dentist will use x-rays to examine your oral health. After that, they will decide if you are a good candidate for the veneers. The next step is to discuss the look of your desired smile. Your dentist will then take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental lab where your desired smile is custom-made.
In the preparation phase, Dr. Robb will reshape your teeth by removing a small layer of enamel. The purpose of this step is to prepare the tooth to receive the veneers. Once the veneers are ready, your dentist will check if they fit your smile. If they do, they will attach them to your teeth' surface, using dental cement.
What are the benefits of dental veneers?
Dental Veneers are made of stain-resistant materials that look exactly like your original teeth. They are also strong and durable. The life span of the veneers ranges between seven and fifteen years. After that, you must replace them with new ones.
