Dental veneers are customized “shells” of porcelain that cover the front sides of your teeth. They’re usually only applied to the teeth that are most visible when you speak and smile, and often only on the top teeth.
Dental veneers are incredibly versatile treatments that can address many different cosmetic issues at once. This level of versatility makes veneers a great investment value, which is part of why they are such a popular cosmetic option.
Because getting veneers requires removing a portion of your natural tooth tissue, they’re considered a permanent treatment. However, even the best set of veneers will eventually need to be replaced, so be sure to factor that cost into your budgeting process.
Dental veneers can correct many different aesthetic issues at once. Some of the cosmetic imperfections that a great set of veneers can improve include:
When you notice the seemingly perfect smile of a celebrity or public figure, it’s often a great set of dental veneers you are admiring. Advancements in dental technology have made veneers more easily attainable than in decades past.
It takes a few visits to achieve your new smile. During the initial visit, a dental exam and imaging will help your dentist determine if any decay or gum disease needs to be treated before moving forward with veneers.
On the first day of active treatment, you’ll receive an injection of numbing medication to help you rest comfortably during your visit. Your dentist then removes a small amount of tooth tissue to make room for the veneers. Impressions are made to send to the dental lab, which helps ensure that your new veneers will align perfectly with your natural teeth.
Your dentist then places a set of temporary veneers to protect your teeth until the new veneers arrive. Once the veneers come in from the dental lab, you’ll return to have them checked for fit and appearance before being cemented into place. This completes your treatment, and you’ll walk out with your new smile ready to share.
