Do you lack confidence in your smile because some of your teeth have some blemishes? Are they slightly chipped, discolored or misshaped? If you are seeking for a way to improve the appearance of your smile without lengthy treatments, you might want to consider dental veneers.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain, or a mixture of porcelain and ceramic materials. They are custom made for your smile and are bonded to your teeth. To help prepare your teeth and make room for the veneers, Dr. Robert E. Hansen Jr., DDS may clean your teeth and remove a small portion of enamel from the desired tooth. Our dentist can help you select which material and shade would be best to make your veneers from and may match your smile.
After the veneers are made, our dentist can lightly etch the tooth, apply an adhesive to help the veneer bond to the tooth and cement the veneer into place. You can see for yourself how veneers can help conceal the blemishes you may have previously been concerned about. Because a small amount of your tooth enamel was removed, this process may not be reversed.
