At Lifetime Smile, a veneer is a thin, custom-made shell bonded to the front of your tooth to improve its shape or color. Most commonly used on the front teeth, they can conceal various imperfections, including stains, chips, cracks, and misalignment. Although porcelain is the most common material used to make veneers, it may also be made from resin composite materials. Resin composite veneers are more conservatively priced than porcelain veneers but are more likely to wear over time. Porcelain veneers can also match the natural shade of your teeth for a natural-looking smile makeover. 

The Procedure for Dental Veneers 

Dental veneers are an increasingly popular cosmetic dentistry solution for patients who want to improve the appearance of teeth that are stained, misaligned, chipped, or misshapen. During the first visit, your dentist gently removes a thin layer of your enamel from the top of the affected teeth to make room for the dental veneers. Then, an impression will be taken and sent to our dental laboratory, where your custom dental veneers will be made. Once your custom porcelain veneers are ready, you will get a second appointment to place them in your mouth. Your dentist will then check each veneer for fit and color before bonding them permanently to your natural teeth with a specially formulated cement. After your veneers are in place and your bite is adjusted, you can enjoy eating all your favorite foods again without worrying that they will damage your new dental veneers! Maintaining good oral hygiene practices and avoiding chewing on hard objects such as ice, fingernails, pencils, etc., is important to protect your new cosmetic enhancement from breaking. If properly cared for, dental veneers can last for many years. 

The Benefits of Dental Veneers 

Enhanced Smile Aesthetics

Dental veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. They can address various cosmetic concerns, including stained or discolored teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, uneven tooth size or shape, gaps between teeth, and minor misalignments. Veneers are designed to create a natural-looking and pleasant smile, giving you a more attractive and confident appearance. 

Durability and Stain Resistance

Dental veneers are highly durable and resistant to stains. Porcelain veneers, in particular, are known for their strength and longevity. With proper care, veneers can last for many years, providing long-lasting smile improvements. 

Boosted Confidence and Self-Esteem

By improving the appearance of your smile, dental veneers can positively impact your confidence and self-esteem. A beautiful smile can make you feel more comfortable and confident in social and professional interactions, enhancing your overall quality of life.
