How Veneers Work
In general, veneers are cosmetic restorations of teeth with slight imperfections. Your tooth must be primarily intact without serious decay or damage to benefit from a veneer. Veneers cover the front surfaces of teeth, leaving most of each original tooth material in place. For Dr. Acevedo to apply a veneer to a tooth, there must be enough tooth enamel for the veneer to bond to it.
During the veneer process, our dentist will ground down a small portion of the surfaces of each existing tooth to allow the veneer to bond to the enamel. Then an impression of your tooth is created to make the veneer—finally, the veneer to the tooth with special cement by our dentist 91740.
Cosmetic Benefits of Veneers
Though veneers can be costly, many people choose this cosmetic dental procedure. Here are some of the cosmetic benefits of veneers in Glendora:
· Strongly bond to teeth
· Have a natural appearance
· Can be used for minor shape corrections in teeth
· Tolerated well by gum tissue
· Can enhance the whiteness of teeth
· Can last up to 15 years, depending on the material
Veneers offer the same benefits and more when compared to professional teeth whitening and dental bonding. In addition, veneers are considered relatively durable, especially when made of porcelain material. Contact Albion Dental for information about veneers near you and other cosmetic procedures.
