Cosmetic Dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. The most common form of cosmetic dentistry is dental veneers.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are what most of Hollywood Stars have as veneers give you the perfect smile. Veneers are also referred to as “Instant Orthodontics”. A considerable cosmetic outcome can be obtained with a veneer and minimal tooth preparation.
A dental veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the tooth’s surface. Veneers are a great way to increase the appearance of your smile.
Common problems that Veneers correct:
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Spaces between the teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
Veneers are applied to the teeth in 2 visits to the dentist:
Visit # 1 Veneer Preparation: The teeth are prepared by removing a very small amount of enamel on the front of the teeth. Then an impression is taken and sent to the dental lab that will create the veneers.
Visit #2 Veneer Bonding: Dr. Nugent goes through a series of steps to chemically bond the porcelain veneer to your teeth.
