If you’re looking for a simple and effective cosmetic enhancement for your smile, then you may consider getting dental veneers. These thin shells are placed in your front teeth to cover any imperfections. The custom-made shells are effective in fixing stained, chipped, misaligned, uneven and worn down teeth. Attaching veneers to your teeth involves a non-invasive procedure that can be finished in just a couple of visits to your Lincroft dentist’s clinic. Once treatment is finished, expect to have a brighter and better looking smile that you’ll surely be proud to show off.
First, your dentist will examine your mouth and assess if you’re a good candidate for veneers. You’ll need to have healthy teeth in order to qualify for the treatment. Your dentist will also have to clean your teeth and gums or fix any existing dental problems before you could have your veneers.
Once you’re cleared to have veneers, your dentist will need to prepare your teeth by removing a small portion of enamel (outer layer) that’ll give enough room for the veneers to attach to. The amount to be trimmed is equal to the thickness of the veneer that will be bonded to the tooth surface. Before this, your dentist may use a local anesthetic to numb the area so you’ll feel comfortable during the procedure. After this, he will take an impression of your teeth and then send the model to an off-site dental laboratory for fabrication.
You’ll have to come back for a second visit to your dentist as soon as your veneers are ready. From here, he’ll carefully examine the fit of your veneers and make the necessary adjustments so that they’ll fit properly. Once both you and your dentist are satisfied with how the veneers look on your teeth, he’ll then begin bonding them in place using a special adhesive which is hardened using a special curing light. After a quick inspection of your veneers, to see that they’ve attached properly to your teeth, you can have a look at a mirror yourself to see your brand new smile.
