Veneers have a natural appearance and are an excellent choice for patients who want to make subtle changes to their smile's appearance. You no longer need to hide your smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth. You can quickly fix the imperfections in your teeth with veneers, giving you a more assured and beautiful smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made of tooth-colored materials (like porcelain) that are used to protect the front side of your teeth. Your dentist will make a custom model of your teeth in order to prepare for veneers. To obtain the optimal aesthetic result, your doctor may need to conservatively prepare your tooth before placing your new veneer.
When your veneers are placed, you will notice that they closely resemble your natural teeth. Although veneers are stain-resistant, your doctor can advise you to avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to keep your new smile looking its best.
Patients who want a happier smile can choose from a variety of products and methods, and with so many choices, it can be difficult to choose the approach that is right for you. The best way to start any teeth-whitening routine is to make an appointment with your dentist and discuss the discrepancies between professional whitening in the office and at-home whitening.
In-office whitening is the first and most popular professional choice. During your appointment, the dentist can use a whitening cream to add to the surface of your teeth. The whole office visit will take about 90 minutes, and you will be able to see results right away.
At- Home Whitening patient wear personalized trays filled with a special gel for a period of days, can select between daytime and nighttime.
