Understanding the Basics
Veneers are small, thin dental prostheses. They are designed to surround your front teeth and replace their front chewing surface. Most commonly, they are made out of durable, stain-resistant porcelain material. By covering up your front teeth and replacing them, veneers can treat a wide variety of different cosmetic dental problems, ranging from slightly-crooked teeth to chipped and misshapen teeth, gaps in your smile, and stains that cannot be treated with a whitening procedure.
However, veneers are not a restorative dental treatment, and they are not intended to treat teeth that have been severely damaged. To restore these teeth, an alternative like a cosmetic crown may be a better choice.
How it Works
The Veneer Placement Process
The veneer placement process usually takes only two appointments. At your first appointment, your mouth will be numbed and a very thin layer of enamel will be removed from each tooth that will be receiving a veneer. This is done to ensure a seamless fit. Once this process is complete, dental impressions will be taken of your teeth and sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be created. You’ll leave our office wearing a set of temporary veneers in the meantime.
When your permanent veneers have arrived at our St. Clair Shores office, you’ll come in for a follow-up appointment. Your mouth will be cleaned, and Dr. Cassleman will check each veneer to make sure it fits properly. Then, they will be bonded permanently into place, and polished to match your teeth.
Versatile Cosmetic Treatment
Benefits Of Veneers
- The process is minimally-invasive, and only requires the removal of a small amount of enamel.
- Treatment is not painful or uncomfortable, and numbing agents are often not even required.
- Veneers allow you to restore your entire smile with just two 1-2 hour appointments over the span of 2-3 weeks.
- These prostheses are more durable compared to other treatments like dental bonding. They are very strong, durable and stain-resistant, and can easily last 15+ years with proper care.
- No special cleaning is required. Just brush and floss normally, and see Dr. Cassleman for a six-month cleaning and checkup!
