Receiving veneers is one of the fastest and simplest ways to make huge improvements to the appearance of a person’s smile. Veneers are ultra-thin shells that are applied on the front surface one’s teeth and secured with a dental adhesive. Once applied, they mask issues such as excessively worn teeth, unsightly discolorations and noticeable spacing issues. This can dramatically enhance one’s smile, making them a worthwhile investment for anyone who isn’t pleased with the appearance of their teeth.
Since veneers are extremely thin, they are not noticeable to others once they have been applied to the teeth. Anyone who looks at them will only see the appearance of healthy, natural tooth enamel. For that reason, veneers are a particularly good option for patients who want to discreetly improve their smile.
At Breathe Well Center, we offer the following types of veneers:
- Traditional Veneers
- Porcelain Veneers
- Composite Veneers
- EMAX Brand Veneers
- No-Prep Veneers
- Lumineers Brand Veneers
- Empress Brand Veneers
Veneers are often recommended when a person’s outer tooth enamel has become worn, damaged and discolored over time. These issues make teeth appear less attractive, and crooked or misshapen teeth can compound on the problem. By applying veneers on the teeth, these issues can be masked, and the appearance of the teeth can be improved significantly. Veneers work to mask the visible flaws that are present on the teeth and provide them with a healthier and more pleasing appearance that looks incredibly natural. Veneers can also adjust the thickness and the contour of teeth to further improve the look of one’s smile.
Another great aspect of veneers is that they are built from special stain-resistant materials. This prevents the restoration from being discolored due to exposure from tobacco products and dark-colored drinks like coffee, wine and juice. Veneers can be cared for in the same manner as untreated teeth, though it is important to avoid any abrasive toothpastes that may scrape away the veneers. Most veneers will remain intact for about ten years before needed to be corrected or replaced.
Veneers can be applied in a relatively simple process. We start by shaving off a small amount of tooth enamel on any tooth that is designated for treatment. This will allow the veneers to fit properly on the teeth. Next, the teeth are cleaned, and any unwanted build-ups of tartar and plaque are removed. The teeth are then dried and treated with etching gel to roughen their outer surfaces. This is done to allow the veneers to bond with the teeth more easily. Finally, the veneers are applied to the teeth, and a strong dental adhesive is used to ensure that they remain secure at all times. Our experts will then check the patient’s bite and make any final adjustments that may be needed.
