How Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Find out everything that dental veneers can offer your smile.

Are you sick and tired of your smile being less than ideal? If you are ready to get cosmetic dentistry then you may want to consider veneerstalking to your Woodbridge dentist Dr. Charles Sours, Jr. about whether veneers are the best option for your smile. Veneers have offered countless patients a new lease on life with a more attractive smile, and now you could reap the many benefits of veneers.

There is a reason veneers have become so popular. You can easily get a more attractive smile in just a few quick visits to your Woodbridge cosmetic dentist. Veneers are typically placed over the front teeth to cover severe stains, oddly shaped teeth or teeth that are a bit crooked. Smiles that have discolorations that don’t respond to professional whitening can still get a brighter smile with veneers.

Veneers are also applied to teeth that have been worn, cracked or chipped. If you have minor overlapping or gaps between teeth and don’t want to go through a year or more of wearing braces then you can consider getting veneers, which can help you achieve a straighter smile.

How Veneers are Applied

Once we examine your smile and determine that veneers will give you the look you want, we will need to prepare the teeth for your veneers. This requires us to remove a very small amount of tooth enamel from the front of your teeth to make room for your veneers. Even though this is painless, once the teeth have been reshaped and prepared this is considered irreversible (so make sure you are ready and committed to having veneers the rest of your life).

Once your custom-made veneers are fabricated you will come back into our office where we will use a tooth-colored bonding resin to apply the veneers to your teeth. A special light will then be used to harden the bonding. The veneers are given a final polish and there you have it—your new smile!
