Veneers – Kenosha Dentist: Modern Family Dentists LLC
If your teeth are chipped, crooked or uneven, then veneers may be the best option to improve the appearance of your teeth. Many people are choosing veneers as the affordable option for correcting a variety of dental issues, and here at Modern Family Dentists LLC we will be happy to discuss any of your correction needs.
Veneers can give you the smile you’ve always wanted without the use of braces or similar options such as SureSmile, in the form of a thin covering shaded to match the color of your teeth.
What are veneers?
A veneer is a thin layer of durable material (usually porcelain) that is fitted over the front of a tooth, similarly to how a false fingernail is placed on a nail.
When and why would I have veneers?
While some people don’t mind a chip in their tooth or if some teeth are crooked or misaligned, others may find it bothers them.
If any of the following are causing you to lose confidence in your smile, then veneers may be suitable for you:
- I have chipped teeth
- My teeth are discolored
- Some of my teeth are crooked
- I have a gap in my teeth
Veneers can improve the appearance, color, position and shape of your teeth. A veneer can make a chipped tooth appear whole again by covering the front of the tooth with a thin layer while using a thicker section to fill the broken area. Small gaps can also be closed using the same method. If one tooth is misaligned with the rest, then a veneer can be fitted to bring it back in line without the need for braces.
What happens when I have veneers fitted?
When you come to Modern Family Dentists LLC for your veneers, we will perform a tooth mapping procedure so we can get a precise outline of your teeth. We will then sand a small amount of the enamel on the surface of your teeth (don’t worry, this doesn’t hurt!) make room for the veneer, and to create a ‘key’ for the resin which will be used to fix the veneer in place.
Once the surface of your tooth has been lightly sanded, we will apply the resin and then the custom-made veneer designed to precisely fit your tooth. A UV light is used to harden the resin, making sure the veneer is fully attached to the tooth.
Finally, we will polish your veneers to give you a sparkly white smile you can be proud of!
How long does it take?
This safe and pain-free procedure can be completed in as little as three sessions. However, more sessions may be necessary depending on the level of treatment you require.
