Dental Veneers – Are They Right For You?

Dental Crowns

Dental veneers, also called dental porcelain laminates, are thin shells made from durable, tooth-colored material. They are applied to the front surfaces of teeth to create an attractive and uniform appearance. Veneers are bonded to your natural teeth and can alter tooth color, shape, length, and width. A veneer can be made from porcelain or resin composite material. Both options have pros and cons. Resin dental veneers are thinner and don’t require as much alteration of natural tooth surfaces. Porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains and reflect light in a more natural way. Your dentist in Bradenton can tell you which material for teeth veneers is best for you.

Who Can Benefit from Dental Veneers?

Teeth veneers can correct a number of common aesthetic dental problems. Many patients who have discoloration from root canals, food and drug stains, resin fillings, or excessive fluoride exposure can enjoy the beautiful teeth veneers create. Other good candidates are patients with worn, cracked, or chipped teeth. Uneven, irregular, or misaligned teeth or gaps between teeth can also be corrected with dental veneers.

The Procedure for Teeth Veneers: What to Expect

Impressions or x-rays of your teeth may be necessary before placing a veneer. Once a treatment plan is made, your dentist will prepare your teeth and place the veneer material. A small portion of each tooth surface equal to the thickness of the veneer will be removed. Your dentist will then make an impression of the newly treated tooth and send it to a laboratory where your veneer will be created. When it is returned, your dentist will test and alter it to ensure a perfect fit and color. After your natural tooth is cleaned, polished, and roughened to help create a strong bond, the veneer will be attached with special light-activated cement. Finally, excess cement will be removed and any final adjustments made. You may be asked to return for a follow-up visit to check the veneer’s fit. Most veneer placements go smoothly, but if you are concerned or have specific questions, talk to your dentist.
