Topic: Dental Veneers

If you could change anything about your smile, what would it be? Perhaps you’d like to improve the size, shape, coloration, or alignment of your teeth. Whether it’s one tooth or multiple teeth, dental veneers provide people with the option to completely transform the way their smile looks, with minimal time investment.

Porcelain dental veneers are thin, durable restorations that are placed on the front of your natural teeth. They are carefully designed and fitted to create the appearance of straight, white teeth. What makes veneers so unique is that they preserve natural tooth enamel and can change your smile without the need for braces, whitening, or lengthy treatments. Instead, the thin porcelain is bonded to a tooth that has been gently conditioned. The entire process is simple, comfortable, and quickly completed.

Once you visit us for a veneer consultation, we’ll take an impression of your teeth and generate a wax model of what your future smile will look like once your veneers are completed. Together, our patients work with Dr. López to determine the shapes, sizes, and color of each tooth. If you have one tooth that is slightly misaligned, or a gap between other teeth, veneers are customized to correct those concerns.

After finalizing the design of your veneers, the design is sent to a dental lab technician who will create the custom porcelain pieces needed for your individual smile. Approximately 2 weeks later, your veneers will be ready for delivery. You’ll have a short visit with Dr. López where the veneers will be bonded to your teeth, and then you’ll walk out with a brand new smile!

Your smile is one of the features that people notice the most. If the way your teeth look is keeping you from smiling or causing you to avoid social interactions, dental veneers may be the best choice for you. Call our office today to talk about getting the smile you always wish you had.
