For teeth that are discolored, chipped or have minor gaps, dental veneers are often an excellent treatment. Veneers are a simple cosmetic option that can address many aesthetic dental problems and result in a beautiful looking smile.
Dental veneers are custom-made thin shells that are permanently cemented onto the front surfaces of the teeth to mask visible flaws. Veneers look and feel like natural teeth while enhancing the look of your smile.
We offer different types of veneers, including:
- Traditional: Traditional veneers are made of porcelain, a material that masks cosmetic imperfections and strengthens the teeth. With the proper care, traditional veneers can last for ten to 20 years.
- Composite: Composite veneers work best with teeth that have minimal cosmetic issues. These type of veneers can be placed in one visit and sculpted on site. Composite veneers can last about five to ten years.
- EMAX: EMAX veneers are known for their extra strength and durability. These veneers are made of a special material that results in an appealing translucent appearance. EMAX veneers are long-lasting and provide beautiful results.
- Empress: Empress veneers are made of a high-quality material that withstands the normal wear and tear of teeth use. Empress veneers can last for many years with the proper oral care.
Our team at Pro Dental Care will help you determine which dental veneer option works best for you.
To place your veneers, the dentist will clean the tooth and determine the correct shade for the veneer. Depending on the type of veneer, the dentist may also remove some enamel in order to provide room for the restoration. An impression of the tooth will be taken in order to create your custom-made restoration. When it is complete, the veneer will be placed on the front surface of the tooth using a strong dental adhesive and checked for proper fit and comfort.
Dental veneers are a great option for anyone who wants to mask minor imperfections in their smile. If you think veneers might be the right choice for you, call the location near you to schedule your appointment!
