What are dental veneers?
Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain or plastic that a dentist cements to the fronts of your teeth. They are used in cosmetic dentistry to correct teeth that are:
- Unevenly spaced
Choosing to get veneers on your teeth is usually an irreversible procedure, because your Bellevue, WA dentist at Bellevue Dental Excellence will need to remove a portion of natural tooth enamel to place the veneers.
Once enamel is removed from your teeth, the dentist takes a mold of your teeth to have the veneers created specifically to match your smile. You'll schedule a second appointment to actually have the veneers placed on your teeth.
Benefits of veneers
Dental veneers are an excellent solution to improve your smile. The veneers resist permanent staining from coffee, wine, or cigarette smoke. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), veneers can last as long as 15 years when properly cared for.
If you choose veneers, you will also be pleased with the natural look and feel of your teeth. Since they are custom made to fit your mouth, dental veneers are virtually undetectable.
Veneers are a great way to quickly whiten your smile. Since they are placed over your natural teeth, they are also a good reinforcement for thin tooth enamel, adding fresh protection to your teeth.
