Dental Veneers

Read Transcript

Do you have chipped or cracked teeth? Are you dealing with severe staining that teeth whitening doesn’t fix? Dental veneers from S&G Family Dentistry may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Let our team help you get the smile you deserve.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are molded to the size of your affected teeth. They are then bonded to the front of them to cover the cosmetic imperfections you are looking hide. Think of veneers kind of like fingernails for your teeth. They are an effective treatment for many types of cosmetic problems, and they are able to offer some restorative value as well.

What Do Dental Veneers Treat?

Chips – A chipped tooth will stick out in your smile. A dental veneer is an effective way of hiding the chip, restoring the look of your tooth, and even strengthening your tooth. It is more durable than other treatments like dental bonding.

Cracks – When you crack a tooth, you have compromised the structural integrity of the tooth in question. Besides the crack impacting your appearance, you are now in danger of your tooth cracking more or even breaking. A dental veneer will cover the crack, correct the cosmetic issue, and support your tooth. This keeps it safe from further damage.

Misshapen Teeth – Some teeth just aren’t shaped the way they should be. This is not a problem orthodontics can fix. Dental veneers can be shaped according to your preferences and simply cover up the misshapen tooth. This will correct the shape and improve the look of your smile.

Gaps – There’s no need to go through orthodontic treatment for an otherwise well-spaced row of teeth due to a small gap. Dental veneers can close that gap and give your smile the appearance you have been looking for.

Heavy Staining – Some people’s teeth are more susceptible to staining from food and drink, past tooth decay, or just genetics. Medications and diseases can also stain your teeth. Teeth whitening products (even professional ones) are sometimes ineffective in treating this kind of severe dental staining. Dental veneers are able to cover the stains with new, white tooth surfaces and return your teeth to a naturally bright appearance.

What Is the Dental Veneer Process?

Step #1You will meet with one of our doctors to determine together if dental veneers are the right option for you. If so, we will prep your tooth for the veneer. We will remove a small part of enamel from your tooth so that the veneer will fit perfectly. Because our e.max porcelain veneers are thinner than normal porcelain veneers, we can reduce the amount of enamel we need to remove.

We will take dental impressions to aid in making your custom dental veneer or veneers. While you wait for your permanent veneer, we will fit you with a temporary veneer. This is not fully bonded to your tooth, but it will help correct your appearance while you wait for your real veneer.

Step #2 – Your new veneer is finished and ready to be applied to your tooth. It will match the color of your teeth, so it won’t stick out in your smile. Dr. Schopper will artistically bond your veneer into place, and your new smile will be ready to go.
