What Are Veneers?

Veneers are an effective way to enhance the appearance of your teeth. Your smile and laughter will be filled with confidence as a result.

Composite resin or porcelain are two common materials used in dental veneers. Both are long-lasting materials and will be made to match the color and feel of your tooth’s enamel. As part of your consultation with your dentist at Perry Family Dentistry, you can discuss the shade of veneers that are most suitable for you.

What Is The Purpose Of Veneers?

Dental laminates are used to fix teeth for a variety of reasons. These thin shells can fix crooked, chipped, discolored, or stained teeth. Veneers may also be required by people with misaligned teeth or teeth with large gaps between them.

How Are Veneers Placed?

Dental shells are applied once your teeth have been prepared by the dentist. When necessary, the dentist will remove some enamel and place dental fillings to create space for veneers. To create the perfect restoration for you, a dental impression will be taken once they are ready. Until your custom dental overlays are ready, you can wear temporary coverings.

The custom dental overlays will be placed precisely by your dentist at your next appointment so that you can have a beautiful, bright smile afterward. Any minor adjustments can be made at this point.

How Long Do They Typically Last?

Dental coatings have a lifespan that varies depending on whether they are porcelain or composite. It is possible to expect dental laminates to last between 10 and 12 years, while composite resin typically last for four to eight years, so they will need to be replaced sooner.
