Dental veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made shells typically crafted from porcelain or composite resin that are meticulously bonded to the front surface of teeth. These versatile cosmetic enhancements are meticulously crafted to improve the appearance of teeth affected by discoloration, staining, chipping, or irregularities in shape and alignment. Veneers are bonded to the natural teeth, creating a seamless, natural-looking smile. They are a popular choice in cosmetic dentistry due to their ability to transform smiles, enhancing aesthetics and confidence. At Wedgewood Dental, veneers provide a long-lasting solution, allowing individuals to achieve the smile they've always dreamed of with minimal alteration to their natural teeth.
The process begins with an initial consultation with our dentist, during which you discuss your goals and expectations for veneers. Our dentist in Rolla, MO, will assess your oral health, discuss the suitability of veneers for your case, and explain the procedure in detail. To accommodate the veneers, a minimal amount of enamel is removed from the front surface of the teeth that will receive the veneers. This step ensures a proper fit and appearance. Our dentist may administer a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during this process.
After tooth preparation, your dentist takes impressions of the treated teeth. These impressions are sent to a dental laboratory, where skilled technicians will custom-design the veneers to match your unique specifications. Temporary veneers may be placed on your prepared teeth to protect them while the permanent veneers are being fabricated. Once the permanent veneers are ready, the veneers are bonded to your teeth using a strong dental adhesive. Our dentist may use a special light to cure and harden the adhesive, ensuring a secure bond.
Veneers are individually designed and customized to meet your unique dental needs and aesthetic goals. Visit Wedgewood Dental at 713 Salem Avenue, Suite A, Rolla, MO 65401, or call (573) 368-7325 to learn more about the dental veneers.
