Want to give your smile and appearance a major makeover without having to undergo serious and invasive dental treatment? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Our Lorain, OH, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jennifer Robb, offers a variety of treatment options that can help you achieve the perfect appearance. One such way to quickly transform your smile is with dental veneers—read on to learn if this popular treatment is right for you!
What is a dental veneer?
These very thin porcelain shells are designed to look just like tooth enamel. They are bonded to the front of teeth to improve the overall appearance of your smile while also covering certain flaws. Veneers offer a simple, quick, and painless way to revamp and revitalize the shape, color, and alignment of your teeth.
What problems can dental veneers address?
You may benefit from dental veneers if you are dealing with these cosmetic issues,
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Malformed, defected, or misshapen teeth
- Uneven or excessively worn teeth
- Teeth that are too short
- Slightly crooked teeth
Porcelain veneers mimic the same translucency and color of real tooth enamel, making it so that no one will even be able to tell that you are wearing veneers.
How are dental veneers placed?
In order to receive veneer treatment, our Lorain, OH, cosmetic dentist will first need to take impressions of your teeth in order to procure the right measurements. We will also need to prep the teeth by shaving off a small amount of enamel from the front tooth surface so as to make room for the veneers. This will all occur during the first visit.
Following a two-to-four week period, your custom veneers will come back from the dental lab, and we can bond them to the front of your teeth using a special dental resin. The resin is then hardened into place using a curing light, finalizing your new smile.
How long do dental veneers last?
While veneers are something you will have the rest of your life they will need to be replaced at some point. With proper care, they can typically last anywhere from 7 to 10 years.
