What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells designed to permanently bond to the visible surface of a tooth. These shells look like a natural tooth, and enhance the aesthetic of the smile. Veneers are typically made of porcelain, which mirrors real teeth both in its luster and semi-translucent coloring.
Why Should I Consider Veneers?
Veneers can be used to cover a variety of cosmetic dental problems. Teeth that are chipped or have been worn down can be made to look whole again. Gaps in teeth and minor misalignment may also be hidden by veneers. A veneer can even be used to give a whiter appearance to stained teeth, especially those that have been damaged and will not whiten.
The advantage of veneers is that they are incredibly versatile. The dentist can apply a single veneer, or a full set, according to the needs and desire of the patient. They are also easy to maintain, and require no extra care beyond good brushing and flossing habits.
Creating Your Ideal Smile
Dr. Castro begins with a comprehensive consultation, first discussing with you what you hope to achieve with your smile. He then examines the state of your teeth, and works with you to build a treatment plan that will create the best results. Veneers may be one of multiple steps in enhancing the smile, alongside other treatments such as teeth whitening and straightening with Invisalign® clear braces.
The dentist then creates a design for your veneers, factoring in your facial structure, skin tone, and the color of any neighboring unaltered teeth to create a veneer that looks natural and attractive. A dental lab creates your custom veneers, which are typically ready within 1-2 weeks.
During the application visit, Dr. Castro makes any final adjustments, then cements the veneers to the teeth. Once they are permanently bonded, you can wear your new smile proudly.
