What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are thin covers for your teeth. They cover the front of your teeth. Dental veneers can be created from ceramic, composite resin, or porcelain. When your teeth, especially the front ones, have cosmetic damage, they may make you hesitate to smile and show them. Dental veneers are one way that your dentist has to improve the appearance of your teeth without replacing the entire tooth.
When to get a dental veneer
If your teeth have become discolored and whitening doesn't help, veneers can. If your teeth are chipped, decayed, crooked, or cracked, the veneer can make them appear perfect. The color of the veneer is made to match the other teeth in your mouth so that no one will be able to tell they are not the natural finish of your teeth.
Can veneers work for everyone?
Dental veneers applied by Dr. Joseph Boulos and Dr. Julie Boulos of All Coast Dental in Pacific Beach, CA works for most people in California, but it may require some other dental work first. If you have decay, you need to get that fixed before considering a veneer. If your teeth are very crooked, you may need to get orthodontic work done first. In the event your teeth and gums are not healthy, that needs to be addressed first. Veneers are permanent and can't be undone.
Getting a dental veneer
It usually requires a few visits to the dentist to get a veneer. On the first visit, your tooth is prepared for the new veneer and the impression is taken so that the custom veneer can be created. The veneer takes up to two weeks to produce, and it will then be bonded onto your tooth to create the look you want.
What will happen to my original tooth?
Your tooth will remain in place but some of the enamel must be removed from the front to make way for the veneer. This means your tooth needs to be covered from this day forward.
