If you are concerned about the appearance of your teeth, be sure to ask the staff at Dinka Dental about dental veneers. Veneers made of porcelain that are custom-fit over the front surface of a damaged tooth restore the tooth to its original appearance. Veneers that are expertly crafted in a dental lab and applied by experienced cosmetic dentists are almost impossible to tell from natural teeth.
Some of the cosmetic dental issues that can be addressed with veneers include:
- Stained teeth that do not respond to bleaching
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Teeth that are worn down from age
- Teeth that have been damaged by periodontal disease
- Teeth that are slightly crooked
Preparation of the tooth before a veneer is applied involves removing a thin layer of the enamel on the tooth’s front surface. This makes room for the veneer so the final product matches the surrounding teeth and it improves the bonding between the veneer and the tooth. The procedure involves little discomfort and can sometimes be completed without anesthetizing the area around the tooth.
The veneer is bonded to the tooth with a thin layer of resin that does not set until it is exposed to a special light. This gives you an opportunity to see the veneer in place and judge its color and appearance before it is permanently bonded to the tooth. Once a veneer is set, you can bite and chew with it just like a real tooth. With proper care, dental veneers will last many years.
Ask us for a consultation to discuss options for improving the appearance of your teeth with veneers or other procedures. Our staff has many years of experience in cosmetic dentistry.
