Dental Veneers

Learning about dental veneers can help you decide if they are right for you or not. They vary depending on the needs of your teeth, but do have a few basic things in common among all types. Veneers can be used to treat numerous different conditions, and the procedure for getting the veneers placed is relatively straightforward. The more you know about dental veneers before you go into your dentist’s office, the more you will understand when they are explaining their procedures to you.

What Types of Conditions Do Dental Veneers Correct?

One of the most common conditions that dental veneers will cover up is that of damaged teeth. The damage can be from a tooth being chipped or even broken, or worn down from clenching, grinding, or normal use. Another use for the veneers is to cover up problematic appearances of teeth. This can be because your teeth have an unsightly gap, this can be due to some type of discoloration on your teeth, or this can even be to cover up and smooth out the look of teeth that have bumps, ridges, or craters.

How Does The Process of Getting Dental Veneers Work?

If you want to get dental veneers, thin resin or porcelain shells, put on your teeth, the first thing you need to do is schedule an appointment with your dentist. This is typically the first in a series of three visits. At the first appointment, you will get to talk with your dentist about if your teeth have enough strength to them to be good candidates for dental veneers. The second visit is to prepare your teeth. This is typically when a mold is made of your mouth, and a slight amount of enamel is removed from your teeth in preparation of the veneers going on. Finally, you will go in and have the veneers bonded to your teeth, allowing you to see the final result of the dental veneers for yourself.

When you have decided that dental veneers are what’s right for you, then give Progressive Dental Care Center a call and schedule your initial visit to get the process started.
