Veneers have gotten a lot of attention and buzz over the past decade as a method of reshaping the teeth. With veneers, you can create a new smile with teeth that are whiter, straighter, and overall more aesthetically pleasing. This is a great option to improve your smile if you have chips, gaps, or misshapen teeth.
Veneers are thin covers that are placed over the teeth to improve their appearance. This can cover issues like stains, chips, gaps, or uneven spaces. Many patients choose veneers if they’re unsatisfied with the overall shape or size of their teeth, opting for veneers for a more proportionate look.
Veneers are available in both porcelain or composite resin, which each have their own pros and cons. Dr. Tadros will recommend which option is best for you based on your cosmetic preferences, dental health, and other factors.
Veneers require a lot of skills and artistry from Dr. Tadros as well as from the lab and ceramist. At Beauty and the Teeth, we design your smile digitally and will have you in what we like to call a “trial smile” provisional that allows us to tweak the design before the final veneers are made. This helps to ensure that your final results are exactly what you’re looking for.
Excellent care provided by warm, welcoming, kind hearted team of professionals. This was my first ever visit to a dentist’s office and I was made to feel completely at ease by Dr. Tardos and her staff. I don’t think many places could take something as uncomfortable as a teeth cleaning and make it a rather fun and pleasant experience. Thank you!
A majority of people who are interested in transforming their smile can benefit from veneers. Unfortunately, however, not everyone is a candidate. Before choosing veneers, your teeth and gums must be in good health. This is crucial to ensure that the teeth support the veneers over time. In addition, those who clench or grind their teeth may not be well suited to veneers, which can chip or break. Finally, you should be 100% certain that you want to choose veneers before having them placed, because the procedure requires removing a small amount of tooth enamel, making veneers permanent.
The process of getting veneers is much less invasive than other options such as porcelain crowns or caps. First, Dr. Tadros will remove a very small amount of tooth enamel from the front and sides of the teeth to make room for the new veneers. Then, an impression of the teeth is taken so your veneers can be custom fit to your teeth. At this stage, Dr. Tadros will select a shade that looks natural but still meets your cosmetic goals and fits your teeth with temporary veneers if necessary. The impressions are sent to a lab to create custom porcelain or composite veneers. Once your permanent veneers are ready to be placed, Dr. Tadros will make any necessary adjustments according to your Smile Trial and make sure the veneers fit perfectly before bonding them to the teeth.
