Veneers are a thin coating made of porcelain or resin applied to the front teeth. At West 10th Dental Group, we have found that veneers can be used to correct many dental issues: discolored teeth, chipped or worn front teeth, gaps between the teeth, or crooked teeth. Each veneer is carefully crafted in color, shape, and size to match and enhance your smile.
Prior to creating veneers for your teeth, a diagnostic record including photos, x-rays, and models are made. The changes that you want to achieve are carefully noted. Some mock-ups of the finished product are also created to assure that you will love your new smile. The process begins when the color selection is made for your new veneers. Preparations to the existing enamel are often needed to create the space required for the color or shape changes in the veneers. An impression is finally made with which the dental technician can sculpt the new veneers to create a new smile. The process is completed by bonding the veneers to the existing tooth enamel. At West 10th Dental Group, we have found veneers to be an excellent solution for a number of cosmetic problems. Together, we can determine if veneers may be right for you!
