If you have one or more teeth that are misshapen, chipped, discolored, or stained, you should talk to our dental team about having a dental veneer placed. Dental veneers are an imitation of a real tooth on your frontal teeth to give you a better-looking and durable smile. Dr. Barbara Lewis-Heywood and our dental associates strive to give you the smile you deserve.
Dental veneers are typically made with porcelain and customized to fit your smile’s shape, color, and abilities to chew and speak. Your dentist will first evaluate what fit is best for you before sending in details to a laboratory for the veneer to be made. They may place a temporary veneer until the new one arrives.
You will come back to the dental clinic after it arrives and be prepped for placement by thorough cleaning of the tooth and new veneer, and then let air dry. Adhesive is then placed after a very small amount of tooth enamel is removed to create an applicable surface. The veneer is placed, cured by a special light for 60 seconds, and then any excess material is removed. Your dentist will then do a final polish.
