If you have misshaped, chipped or broken teeth, or even teeth that are aged and discolored, there’s a very good chance you’d gain a lot from investing in a series of veneers.
Veneers are thin shell-like covers that hide oral imperfections caused by damaged teeth or other dental misfortunes. The veneer shells are tailored to fit your individual teeth with an emphasis on how perfect you want your teeth to look.
Typically, veneers are considered a permanent solution for teeth that are aesthetically pleasing. These are made of porcelain or synthetic resin which makes them very durable, enabling them to last a long time.
These also don’t stain or discolor very quickly, and throughout the wearers’ experience, these can maintain their brightened look.
To prepare your teeth for your veneers, we must extract from the surface of your original teeth a millimeter of your current enamel to ensure that the veneer has adequate room to fit in. Then we will take an image of the inside of your mouth to create a mold from which our team can develop your veneers. Once the veneers are finished, the doctor binds them to the surface of your teeth.
Even though Veneers are very sturdy, as if they were your own teeth, you will still want to protect and care for them. You should have a routine of good oral hygiene which uses a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste, without aggravating your fresh veneers, this will delay tooth decay. If you’re a person who grinds their teeth at night, ask for a nightguard to protect your teeth.
If you want to enhance your smile or you’re just looking to cover up any oral imperfections, we invite you to visit our offices to schedule an appointment to learn more about our veneer process. Drs. Tiffany and John O’Brien’s offices are currently located in Clifton Park and Malta, New York.
