Dental veneers are the perfect solution if you want to instantly improve your smile. They are thin, transparent coverings placed over the front or visible part of teeth. When secured in place, they resemble your natural teeth and fix any dental imperfections.
At North Alabama Smiles, we offer these customized restorations to help our patients achieve a flawless smile.
What Are Veneers Used For?
Veneers can correct a wide range of dental imperfections, such as:
- Stained teeth that cannot be whitened with traditional teeth whitening treatments
- Worn or chipped teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Large gaps or uneven spaces between the front teeth
Veneers are made from various materials like composite resin or porcelain. Each option has its pros and cons, and we will help you select the material that works best for your needs.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?
Veneers have several benefits, including:
- They are solid and long-lasting
- They look natural
- The procedure of placing them only requires two dental visits
- They don’t stain or break easily
What Is the Process for Placing Veneers?
To prepare the teeth, our dentist will remove a minimal amount of enamel from the front and sides to make space for the veneer restoration. We will then take an impression of the teeth and help you decide on the veneer color that best suits your smile.
The impression is then sent over to our dental lab that custom-makes the veneers to fit your teeth and requirements. This process will take several days and, in the meantime, you will be fitted with temporary veneers.
Once they are ready, during your second visit, our dentist will place the veneers on the teeth and check their shape and fit. After any necessary adjustments are done, the teeth are cleaned and you are ready to enjoy your new and improved smile.
How to Care for Veneers?
Veneers can chip or break under pressure so avoid biting your fingernails or chewing on things like ice. A couple of days may be required for you to get used to the feel of your veneers. If your bite does not feel right after the veneers have been placed, we will make any necessary adjustments.
