One of the most popular and effective developments in cosmetic dentistry, veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain facings that cover the front side of your teeth. Veneers are used to correct uneven teeth, worn enamel, discoloration, chipped teeth, and irregular spacing. In some cases, veneers can serve a restorative purpose and can protect a damaged tooth from further harm.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
After a thorough examination of your teeth, which may include X-rays and taking impressions or a digital scan of your teeth, Dr. Taple or Dr. Thomas will remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. Then Dr. Taple or Dr. Thomas will create an impression or digital scan to aid in the fabrication of the veneers.
The veneer’s size and color are checked before they are bonded to your teeth. Some veneers may be able to be made in one appointment and some may require being sent out to a lab.
What Are the Advantages of Veneers?
Veneers can give your teeth a more natural, aesthetically pleasing appearance and are stain-resistant. In some cases, veneers can serve a restorative purpose and can protect a damaged tooth from further harm.
Types of Veneers:
• Resin Composite
Will My Insurance Cover Veneers?
