If your teeth are a little damaged or broken, you may feel embarrassed to flaunt your smile. Thanks to advancements in the field of dentistry, these minor problems can be corrected by a variety of dental solutions. One of the most popular solutions that we offer at our Bonita Springs dental practice is dental veneers.
Veneers are very thin materials that are used to cover the surface of your teeth to mask imperfections and improve their appearance. They can be used to create an aesthetically pleasing smile by correcting any of the following problems:
- Crooked teeth.
- Teeth that are too small or large
- Severely discolored or stained teeth
- Misshaped teeth.
- Worn or chipped teeth.
- Unwanted or unevenly spaced teeth.
Veneers are a minimally invasive and natural-looking way of effectively changing and improving the shape, color, and appearance of a tooth. We offer porcelain as well as composite veneers at our office in Bonita Springs FL.
Porcelain is a material of choice for many when it comes to veneers because of the extremely natural-looking glossy finish it provides. Composite veneers are made using a plastic resin that needs polishing to look natural. In comparison with porcelain veneers, composite veneers tend to stain. But these surface stains can be easily lifted with our teeth whitening treatments.
The Process of Installing Veneers
Getting veneers usually require two visits to our office in Bonita Springs FL. The patient needs little or no anesthesia at all. First, we will prepare the teeth by lightly buffing and shaping the surface. Then we will take an impression or mold of the teeth along with the desired color to prepare your custom veneer. During your next appointment, your tooth will be cleaned and bonding cement will be applied before placing the veneer. The bond is hardened and set using a special curing light.
