Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom made to fit on the front surface of teeth to provide a natural, attractive look. They can be used to mask chips and stains as well as misaligned, worn down, uneven or gapped teeth.
Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available for dramatically improving the appearance of a person’s teeth and the overall look of their smile. Not only do veneers provide great results for patients, but they are also a relatively fast and simple procedure. A patient who receives veneers can show-off their newly improved smile as soon as the veneers have been applied.
Any patient who receives veneers from Wauchula Dental will be required to make two appointments. The first visit involves taking impressions of the patient’s teeth and deciding which type of veneers will be used. We offer options for both porcelain and composite veneers, and we can help any patient determine which type of veneers is best suited for their unique needs. Once the first visit is finished, the impressions will be forwarded to a dental lab so that a custom set of veneers can be constructed. The patient will return for their follow-up visit once when the veneers are ready.
The process for applying veneers starts by removing some of the patient’s outer tooth enamel. This is done to accommodate for the veneers that will be installed. We then use an acidic etching gel to roughen the outer surfaces of the teeth helping the veneers to bond more easily. The custom veneers can then be applied and secured with a dental adhesive. In most cases, a set of veneers will last for about ten years.
Veneers can help you dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. A visit to Wauchula Dental is the first step to receiving your own set of custom smile-enhancing veneers. Please call us at (863) 773-9344 to schedule an appointment.
