Veneers for Bonita Springs
Veneers are one of the most popular methods to improve the appearance of a smile. Many of the Hollywood faces seen these days beam with the beauty of veneer treatment. Porcelain veneers are translucent, thin laminates specifically made to improve the esthetics of natural teeth, to correct crowding, or to replace composite bonding.
Veneers can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth, or whiten stained teeth. In addition, if teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, veneers can protect them from damage and restore their original look.
Veneers are so popular in part because the treatment is extremely conservative and the results can be transformative. Veneers can also be used in conjunction with other restorative dental treatments like crowns, composite bonding, whitening, and dental implants.
What is the Procedure?
It generally takes two appointments to restore your teeth with veneers. On the first appointment, your teeth are prepared, impressions are taken, and temporary veneers are placed. From these impressions, precise working models are made of your teeth. It's on these models that the veneers are crafted for an exact fit.
On the second appointment, your prepared teeth are polished and cleaned. An adhesive is then used to bond the veneers to your teeth. A harmless ultraviolet light hardens the adhesive.
Once in place, veneers virtually become part of your teeth. Although the veneers are extremely thin, the bond to the teeth makes them very strong and durable. You can use them like you would your own teeth. The final result is a more beautiful and natural looking smile.
Could Veneers Be Right for You?
Just like all other dental treatments, veneers are not necessarily universally beneficial. Some smiles can benefit from a simple cleaning, composite bonding, or Invisalign. Feel free to contact us for a complete evaluation and we would be happy to discuss your options!
