Creating a perfect smile is easier than you might realize, thanks to veneers. These thin porcelain pieces fit over your teeth, covering a variety of cosmetic dental issues. Dr. Ron Kondoff offer veneers, in their Virginia Beach office, and are here to explain how they can help you transform your smile.
How can veneers help me?
Veneers offer an excellent solution to many cosmetic dental issues, including:
- Dull, Discolored Teeth: The foods and beverages you consume can stain your teeth, making them appear duller. Coffee, tea, wine, cola, berries and other foods and drinks penetrate your tooth enamel and can't be removed by brushing. Although teeth whitening treatment can lighten your teeth, sometimes whitening just doesn't get your teeth white enough. Since veneers can be made in a variety of shades, your teeth will be as white as you like. Best of all, veneers are stain resistant. Although many people get veneers for all of their teeth, a single veneer can be used to cover a tooth discolored by tetracycline or other causes.
- Gaps: Veneers are a good choice if you have slight gaps between your teeth. If you have very large gaps, braces may be a better choice.
- Chips and Breaks: Small chips and breaks can be easily concealed with veneers.
- Irregular teeth: It's not unusual to have one or more teeth that just don't look like the rest. These teeth may be smaller than normal, slightly crooked or uneven. Veneers make your entire smile uniform.
What happens during the veneer process?
When you visit your Virginia Beach dentists, you'll choose the shade for your new veneers, and your dentist will prepare your teeth by filing them down slightly. Removing a very small portion of enamel on the front of your teeth ensures that your veneers will fit properly. An impression will be made of your teeth and sent to the laboratory that will create your custom veneers. When the veneers are ready, your dentist will check the fit and make any adjustments before permanently attaching them to your teeth.
