Veneers are made of porcelain or other tooth-colored materials that look just like your natural teeth. They are thin shells that fit over the front part of teeth to restore them, improve their shape and color, and protect teeth from future damage.
Veneers can drastically improve your smile and confidence.
Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that are:
Veneers are strong, long-lasting, and natural-looking. They require less tooth enamel removal than dental crowns and don’t stain easily. Century Park Dental Care might pair veneers with other dental restorations to perfect your smile makeover.
To determine if you’re a good candidate for veneers, your provider at Century Park Dental Care reviews your dental history, examines your teeth, and completes dental X-rays.
To be a good candidate for the procedure, you must have healthy teeth and gums with no decay, as well as good dental hygiene habits. If you do have tooth decay, they can treat it before veneer placement.
To prepare your teeth for veneer placement, your provider at Century Park Dental Care removes a small portion of the enamel from the front and sides of your teeth.
They then take impressions or digital scans of your teeth so a dental lab can create custom veneers for you. You might receive temporary veneers in the meantime.
When your new veneers are ready, your provider ensures they fit properly on your teeth. They clean your teeth and permanently bond veneers to them to restore their function and appearance.
Veneers are long-lasting if you care for them properly. Avoid chewing on ice, candy, and other hard objects, and don’t bite your fingernails. Brush your teeth and gums twice daily, floss every day, and attend routine dental exams and cleanings with the team at Century Park Dental Care.
