Changing the look and shape of your teeth becomes easy when you opt for porcelain veneers. Veneers consist of thin shells of porcelain that are fitted over your natural teeth. The material is so thin that the tooth’s natural color is able to shine through. This gives you a new, transformed smile that you’ll love showing off to the world. Alternatively, they can be made to mask teeth that are too dark or discolored.
Why Choose Veneers?
Veneers are considered one of the gentlest dental treatments, as they are kind to the pulp (nerves) of the tooth, unlike some other dental restorations. You should consider veneers if your teeth are not uniform in shape, color or texture, if they are broken or cracked, or if you have uneven spaces you want to fill.
Three Appointments to a New, Improved Smile
Three appointments are usually required to complete the veneer process. At the initial appointment, Dr. Brusky will make impressions of your teeth so the laboratory can create a template for the final dental restorations. The impressions will also serve as a matrix for making the temporary veneers.
At the next appointment, Dr. Brusky will numb your teeth before preparing your teeth surfaces to receive the veneers. The teeth surfaces will be shaved so that they can accommodate the thickness of the veneer, allowing the thin strip to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
An impression of your teeth will be taken, and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and Dr. Brusky to create a beautiful, natural looking smile.
On the final visit, the teeth will be prepared to ensure the veneers will bond to them. Cement will be placed between the tooth and veneer, and will then be polymerized with a curing light to harden the cement.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
Veneers can be quite costly, but that’s only because you’re getting the highest grade materials that won’t stain or chip, and that are designed to completely transform your smile. Dr. Brusky wants you to experience the life-changing experience of wearing veneers.
