About Dental Veneers

Teeth are often less than perfect. The good news is that they do not need to stay that way. Dental veneers can change the way they look and correct many imperfections to give you a great smile. Problems that they can correct include discolored teeth, short teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, and even slightly misaligned teeth.

Dental veneers are thin caps that are permanently placed on the front of teeth. They are made of porcelain or resin composite materials. The best ones are made of porcelain, which is translucent and looks more natural than the ones made of composite resin.

The Preparation

The dentist will often prepare your teeth for veneers by removing some of the enamel from your teeth. This is done so that after the caps are in place, your teeth remain about the same thickness as they were before. This process cannot be reversed. With some types of dental veneers, they are so thin that no material needs to be removed from your teeth.

The Application

Porcelain veneers need to be made in a lab. A mold or digital scan will be made and then sent to the lab. The veneers will be sent to the dentist about two weeks later. The dentist will put each tooth veneer in place as a test and then adjust or trim it for a perfect fit. This may occur two or three times. Once it is the perfect fit, it will be bonded in place. More than one appointment may be necessary before all are in place.

Composite resin dental veneers are applied differently than the porcelain ones. Composite resin is the same material that is used for fillings or to repair chipped teeth. No tooth enamel needs to be removed. It is applied in layers by the Long Island dental veneers dentist and then shaped, hardened, and polished. Most often, the process can be completed in one visit.

Advantages of Dental Veneers

Dental veneers have the primary advantage of transforming teeth that are not perfect into a truly great smile. Some people refer to them as Hollywood teeth because movie stars often have veneers applied to their teeth to correct imperfections and to give them their very attractive smiles.

Best Candidates for Dental Veneers

Before any veneers will be applied, a customer needs to have their teeth evaluated. This will reveal whether or not they are good candidates for the process. Sometimes, other dental work may be needed to get the desired result.
