The experts at Salem Creek Family Dental often recommend veneers as an easy and effective cosmetic dental treatment for our patients. These ingenious devices are excellent for correcting issues with tooth alignment, contour and discoloration. They are simple to apply, and they can provide dramatic results that are visible as soon as treatment is complete.
Veneers are ultra-thin shells that are applied to the front surface of the teeth. By installing veneers, we can hide worn-down or damaged tooth enamel and correct noticeable dental flaws. Veneers are particularly useful when a person’s teeth are chipped, uneven, or suffering from spacing problems.
Another positive aspect of veneers is that they do not change the way that teeth need to be cared for. A patient will not need to make any major changes to their regular oral hygiene practices after receiving veneers. Our practice offers both porcelain and composite veneers. All of the materials used in our veneers are of the highest-quality, and they are stain-resistant to prevent discolorations.
In order to receive veneers, a patient must make at least two visits to our practice. During an initial visit, we will take impressions and determine which type of veneer is best-suited for their unique needs.
The impressions will be forwarded to a dental laboratory so that the veneers can be built. To apply the veneers at your second visit, we start by removing a small amount of the patient’s tooth enamel. This allows us to make space for the veneers. Next, we use an acidic etching solution to roughen the surfaces of the teeth. By doing this, the veneers will be able to bond with the teeth more easily. We finish by securing the veneers with a strong dental adhesive and evaluating the patient’s overall bite.
