Amazing Veneers: A Simple Solution to More Smile Flaws Than You Think

Today there are many solutions available to fix your smile and keep your mouth healthy. One of the most versatile dental treatments you can choose to fix a wide variety of smile flaws is dental veneers.

At the Center for Implant & Esthetic Dentistry, you can receive a comprehensive evaluation as well as custom veneers to completely transform your smile in just a few visits.

What to expect when getting veneers

Veneers are thin, durable shells that attach to the front surfaces of your front teeth. The shells are custom-made to resemble the natural color, shape, and size of your teeth. Once they’re bonded into place, they function just like your natural teeth.  

The process of applying veneers can take several visits to the office to achieve your desired results. First, your dentist will give you a thorough evaluation. Before any work is started Dr. Mahallati performs a Mockup procedure.  The purpose of the Mockup is to take the new smile for a test drive and make sure you like all aspects of the smile before any work is done.  It is also an excellent communication tool for you and your dentist and the laboratory dental technologist, to make sure everyone is on the same page.  Your dentist will then give your teeth a deep cleaning. They will then use a specialized tool to roughen the surfaces of your teeth to ensure the dental adhesive forms a strong bond to hold the veneers into place. Then they will take a mold of your teeth and send it to a dental lab where your veneers will be created.  Center for Implant & Esthetic Dentistry is one of the few prosthodontic practices that operate its own on-site dental laboratory. Our laboratory consists of state-of-the-art dental technologies and materials, including one of the most advanced CAD/CAM systems in the field of dentistry. An on-site dental laboratory enables us to provide the highest quality of esthetic results by allowing supervision and input by the doctor at every step. This process also allows the lab technician to meet with the patient to ensure their esthetic preferences with great success! In the meantime you will be wearing temporaries that resemble the shape of the final veneers, taking your new smile for a test drive.

When your veneers are ready, you’ll come back to the office. The temporary veneers are removed and the permanent veneers are tried on to ensure fit, color, bite and overall aesthetics. The cement will then be applied, your veneers will be placed, and a special light will be used to help the cement harden quickly.

Once the veneers are in place, you can care for them just like your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental exams will help ensure your veneers last for many years.

Discolored or damaged teeth can make you feel that your smile is something to hide.

Lasting benefits of veneers

Immediately after your veneers are placed, you can eat and speak normally. The materials that make up dental veneers are designed to resist stains, so you can keep your smile looking white and bright for years to come.

Another reason dental veneers are a popular choice is due to the fast and effective process, which requires no surgery or general anesthesia. While you can receive a numbing agent to stay comfortable, you won’t have to worry about downtime.
