For those who wish for brighter, more aesthetic smiles, our dentist may recommend veneers. These tooth-colored shells are made to cover the front of teeth with minor cosmetic flaws, like stains or chips.
If you choose veneers for your smile, Dr. Mike Choe will first clean the teeth receiving veneers and select the correct shade for your restorations. Local anesthesia is usually not needed for veneer placement. However, it can be used if needed. The fronts of the teeth receiving veneers will have a small amount of enamel removed to allow room for the veneers. Impressions are taken of the teeth so that your veneers can be constructed specifically for your smile.
When the veneers are complete, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and dried, and the veneers will be etched to allow for an ideal bonding process. The veneers are then cemented in place and allowed to cure. The fit and color of your new veneers will be checked. Any excess material will be removed by our dentist and your veneers will be polished.
Veneers can last for many years before they need to be replaced. Practice proper dental hygiene to care for your veneers. Brush your teeth twice a day, floss once a day and visit Westlake Family Dentistry at least every six months for professional cleaning and exam appointments.
