Dental veneers have become a popular way for our healthy adult patients to finally have a perfectly white, even, and straight smile. Discover how dental veneers can transform your smile.
Veneers are described as wafer-thin, medical-grade porcelain layers that cover the front of your teeth to alter the shape, color, and overall appearance of your smile. Whether you have a single misshapen or severely discolored tooth, or an entire set of teeth that you’d like to improve, dental veneers remain a great option because they promise long-term results.
These “shells” are made from porcelain because this material most closely resembles the look and shine of real tooth enamel. Our Las Vegas, NV, dentists pride themselves on crafting award-winning smiles through customized cosmetic treatments such as dental veneers, which are tailored to fit your needs. Each veneer is created from exact measurements of your teeth, ensuring that every veneer that we bond permanently in place looks and feels natural and comfortable.
Since veneers are already made from very thin yet durable material, this means that very little tooth preparation is needed to get veneers. We will often need to shave about 0.5mm of enamel from the front of your teeth prior to placing veneers. Often times we can remove bits of enamel without any discomfort, but patients who are more sensitive may require local anesthesia.
Once the enamel has been removed and impressions have been taken, we will send these impressions to a lab where they will craft each individual veneer based on these measurements. It usually takes about 3-4 weeks for a lab to create veneers. During this time, temporary veneers may be placed to protect your teeth until your veneers are ready to be fitted and permanently bonded in place.
Veneers are considered a permanent cosmetic treatment designed to alter the shape, size, length, color, and alignment of your teeth. Veneers may be ideal for you if you are dealing with:
- Short or stubby teeth
- Teeth that are unevenly shaped or misshapen
- Severely discolored teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Severely worn teeth
