Dental veneers are tooth-colored shells that your dentist bonds to the front and sides of your teeth to strengthen them and improve their appearance. Veneers are long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing, and can offer you a perfect smile. If you have minor tooth imperfections, veneers are likely a good fit for you.
Some of the main benefits you can take advantage of when choosing veneers at STAR Family Dental are teeth that are:
Veneers look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth and enhance the appearance of your smile without invasive treatments.
To find out if you need veneers, your STAR Family Dental provider discusses your treatment options with you. They review your oral health history, symptoms, and desired results before examining your teeth and gums. Your dentist may also take dental X-rays, if needed, before tailoring your personalized treatment plan.
When getting veneers, your dentist digitally scans your mouth. This allows a dental lab to develop custom-fitted veneers that comfortably fit your teeth and mouth.
When your new veneers are ready, your STAR Family Dental specialist cleans your teeth, numbs the treatment area if necessary, removes part of the outer layer of tooth enamel, and bonds veneers to the front and sides of your teeth. Your dentist ensures the veneers fit comfortably before sending you home.
After receiving dental veneers, there’s zero downtime, so you can immediately return to your normal daily activities. Take good care of your new veneers by brushing your teeth after meals, flossing daily, and not chewing on hard candy or other hard objects.
See the STAR Family Dental specialists at least every six months for routine dental exams and cleanings, and call the office if your veneers get damaged. With proper care, the veneers might last 10-20 years or longer.
