Do you have a stubborn, unattractive tooth that takes the beauty away from your smile? If so, you might want to consider enhancing it so you can have the smile you deserve. Fortunately, dental veneers can get the job done. They are thin, porcelain, tooth-colored shells that cover your teeth and disguise their imperfections. They can help you have a more attractive smile.
Dental veneer treatment
Your dentist, Dr. Alexis Mai, will start treatment by numbing your tooth and possibly the surrounding gums. This will help you feel comfortable throughout the appointment. Then, she will shave a section of the front surface of the tooth to make room for the dental veneer. If she doesn’t trim the tooth, the veneer will make the tooth look bulky. Next, she will make an impression of the tooth and will send it to a dental lab where technicians will carefully craft your personalized veneer. When it’s ready and sent to our office, your dentist will cement it over your tooth.
Dental veneer care
Caring for a dental veneer is simple and easy. All you need to do is care for it like your other teeth. Just make sure to brush twice a day, floss and rinse daily, and visit your dentist every six months for your checkup appointments.
