Veneers are thin porcelain shells that adhere to the surface of your teeth to create a natural and healthy-looking smile. As experts in cosmetic dentistry, the team at Lakeview Family Dental customize and shape each veneer with precision to give you a beautiful smile.
Veneers can fix almost any smile imperfection, including:
The team at Lakeview Family Dental will determine if veneers are a good fit for you after a thorough examination of your mouth and oral health.
Placement of veneers may require one or two visits to the team at Lakeview Family Dental. Veneer placement is a relatively painless procedure, but if you're sensitive to pain, the team may begin with a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort.
The team first cleans your teeth. Then a very thin portion of your tooth enamel is removed to improve placement and bonding of the veneer. An impression of your teeth is created to create a custom set of veneers that match your tooth size, desired shape, and color.
Once your personalized veneers are ready, they’re bonded to your teeth with special cement and secured with a UV light. If needed, additional shaping is done to improve aesthetics and fit.
The porcelain veneers the team at Lakeview Family Dental uses are strong and durable and can last for up to 20 years with good care. The knowledgeable, skilled team recommends you come in for your regular checkups and cleanings to provide proper care for your veneers and stay on top of your oral health.
At home, the team recommends you use a nonabrasive toothpaste and continue with your usual oral hygiene habits of brushing twice a day and flossing daily.
Porcelain veneers are stain resistant, even to coffee and tea, so they’ll keep your smile white and bright.
If you've always fantasized about having a movie star smile, the team at Lakeview Family Dental can help make your dreams a reality in a comfortable and relaxed setting. Call today or book an appointment online.
