Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers are used to treat minor cosmetic concerns, and are applied to the part of your teeth that is visible when talking or smiling. When you get veneers, Dr. Heiden places a covering over the outside area of your tooth. They’re usually made of porcelain or another hard, durable material, and are perfectly matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Some individuals may only need one veneer on a single tooth, while other people may need several veneers to achieve their desired outcome. Dr. Heiden can tailor veneers to your needs and ensure you get the smile of your dreams. With proper dental habits, veneers can last for several years.
What problems can veneers fix?
Veneers can correct a number of different dental problems, but they’re mostly used to fix minor cosmetic concerns, including teeth that are:
- Crooked or misaligned
- Chipped or cracked
- Unevenly spaced
If you have a cosmetic dental concern, you can meet with Dr. Heiden to discuss if veneers are right for you.
What happens during a veneers procedure?
The veneers procedure is generally referred to as direct or indirect. With the direct technique, Dr. Heiden places composite resin on the outside of the tooth. This method is also called bonding.
The indirect technique involves creating your veneers from porcelain or pressed ceramic. First, you meet with Dr. Heiden so he can take impressions of your teeth. With advanced, in-office technology, he can make permanent, custom veneers the same day as your visit.
To ensure the veneers fit well, Dr. Heiden may drill or shape the surface of your teeth. When your permanent veneers are ready, Dr. Heiden attaches them to your teeth to make sure they fit well and are comfortable.
What are the benefits of veneers?
At Heiden Family Dental, veneers are a same-day and painless dental procedure.
Veneers can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile, and they’re beneficial in so many ways. In comparison to crowns, veneers are less invasive and don’t require the removal of excess tooth material. With results that last, your veneers can help you maintain a bright and beautiful smile for life.
