In preparation for the placement of veneers, Dr. Laura will remove a small amount of enamel from the front of each tooth. This makes room for the porcelain veneer to fit perfectly on the tooth while looking natural with your gums and other teeth. After the enamel is removed from each tooth, each veneer is carefully placed to create a beautiful smile. It is bonded to the tooth with a very strong resin cement. The cement is hardened with a special light, making the bond permanent.
Veneers cover a multitude of dental imperfections. They can close small gaps, hide stains, cover chips and fractures, and make teeth look straighter. Since veneers are made of porcelain, they are not porous and susceptible to stains like natural enamel. Patients are amazed at how much their smiles are transformed with such a minimally invasive procedure. You will leave with a beautiful smile. To keep your smile radiant and healthy, you will need proper maintenance. Brush and floss regularly and do not miss your 6 month check-ups with Eastwood Dental Office.
