Benefits of Veneers from Belmont Dental Group

A straight, bright smile can help you show your personality to the world. If you are embarrassed by your teeth, and thus hesitant to smile, consider turning to dental restoration. Porcelain veneers, which are thin shells that fit on the fronts of your teeth, are easy to apply, simple to maintain, and can provide great results. The dentists at Belmont Dental Group are proud to brighten the smiles of Belmont residents with custom-made porcelain veneers.

Veneer Application Process

Some dental restoration procedures take months or even years to complete. Applying veneers is a simple process that can give you a straight, white smile in as little as a week.

1. Evaluation: First, your dentist will examine your mouth and determine which teeth will benefit from veneers. Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of discolored, cracked, chipped, and even misaligned teeth.

2. Preparation: Once your dentist has a clear plan for your veneers, he'll prepare your teeth by removing about ½ millimeter of tooth enamel. Then, he'll take an impression of your teeth and determine their precise color.

3. Manufacture: After your first visit, you may receive temporary veneers for your teeth. It usually takes about one to two weeks for custom veneers to be manufactured and delivered to the dentist's office.

4. Application: During your second visit, your dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth and apply the veneers. Veneers are typically bonded to teeth via a special bonding cement.

Reasons to Consider Veneers

If you are unsatisfied with your smile for any reason, porcelain veneers may be the right dental restoration treatment for you. Veneers have a number of advantages over other treatments.

  • Great Results: Veneers provide instant results. If your teeth aren't responding to teeth whitening treatments, you might have more luck with veneers.
  • Non-Invasive: Porcelain veneers only require the removal of a small amount of enamel. Applying a veneer to an existing tooth is almost always preferable to replacing a tooth with an implant or partial denture.
  • Easy Maintenance: Once your veneer is bonded to your tooth, you can floss and brush it like a natural tooth. You won't have to worry about taking it out when you eat or sleep.
  • Stain Resistant: After teeth-whitening, your teeth are still very vulnerable to stains. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are stain resistant.
  • Virtually Undetectable: If done right, porcelain veneers are indistinguishable from natural teeth. Veneers allow you to enjoy the benefits of a bright smile without conspicuous signs of dental restoration.
