What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are custom-designed extremely thin shells simulating natural teeth that are cautiously and creatively created by your dentist and constructed in a dental lab. The veneers are then attached around your own teeth and can serve more than a few purposes, the most regular including straightening, whitening and lengthening. The primary goal of having veneers put on is to supply you an exquisite smile! This solution is the best technique we take advantage of today to supply our patients with the finest smile possible. We have an artistic eye and works with accomplished ceramists. With each other, our results are exquisite, yet natural.

Veneers Are Not the Same as Bonding

How do you recognize if dental bonding or veneers are the best choice? The brief response is that bonding is typically recommended for more simple tooth adjustments. Having said that, if you have teeth that are noticeably stained or have sustained heavy wear and tear, then veneers may be a preferable choice for you. Furthermore, veneers are a suggested choice for other sizable issues like broken teeth, sizable gaps in your teeth, or even variations in the size and shape of your teeth. Because veneers are custom-made for each patient, they appear a lot more like your natural teeth. In addition, you don’t have to worry about them becoming discolored over time, as they are created to be stain-resistant to the effects of coffee or wine drinking.

It takes two to three appointments with your dentist to fully perform the dental veneer process. First, we suggest a consultative visit in which you sit down with your doctor to discuss the procedure. At this visit, we like to provide you with the chance to ask any questions you may have so that you fully understand the process. During the consultation, we will also create the best treatment plan individualized to you and your schedule.

At the second visit, we begin the actual physical work of your veneers. At this point, your teeth are shaved down to prepare for application, and a temporary veneer is placed on top of your teeth. These will function as a placeholder until your long-term veneers are constructed in a lab by our trusted ceramists and returned to our office.

On your third and final visit, your temporaries are then replaced with your long-term, custom-made veneers.

  • My family and I would highly recommend Shallowford Family Dental. Dr. Ankar and his staff always treat us well and we value his knowledge as a dentist. They try their best to make what is often a unpleasant experience less uncomfortable and pleasant. Dr Ankar is not only my dentist, he's my friend.

  • A few weeks ago I woke up with a terrible toothache. Shallowford Family Dental was the only office I called that told me I could come in as soon as I could. This was my first cavity ever so I freaked out a little, but the staff was super nice and Dr. Edwards and Mary Taylor did a fantastic job making me feel comfortable. Also due to their skill I was able to avoid getting a root canal!
