How do veneers work?
Veneers work to renew your smile by covering imperfections in your teeth. These shells of porcelain lie over the surface of the tooth to give it a different appearance. Veneers require preparation of the tooth. Removing a very small amount of enamel from the surface makes room for the thickness of the veneer and helps the bonding agents adhere to the tooth.
Do I need veneers?
Veneers are versatile and often used alongside other restorative or cosmetic dentistry procedures to achieve different effects. Some of the most common uses for veneers include:
- changing the color or a discolored or yellowed tooth
- repairing chips or cracks in the teeth
- improving the appearance of slight overlaps or gaps
- straightening small misalignments in the teeth
- straightening uneven tooth lengths
- improving the appearance of a misshapen or abnormal tooth
Dental Veneers in Virginia Beach, VA
Veneers’ process begins with a consultation with your dentist to ensure that veneers are the right procedure for you. The dental laboratory requires an impression of your mouth. When they receive the impression from your dentist, they can begin designing and creating your veneers. Due to the time required for the dental laboratory’s work, most veneers need two dental appointments to complete. If your dentist prepares your teeth for the veneers at your first appointment, they may place temporary restorations until the lab completes your permanent veneers. At your second appointment, the permanent veneers replace the temporary restorations to complete your procedure.
