Looking for the perfect smile? Some patients look to veneers for a tooth has been broken while others are looking to create a dazzling superstar smile. For teeth that are severely discolored, chipped or misshapen, veneers create a durable and pleasing smile. Plus, veneers are difficult to stain, making them popular for people seeking a perfect smile. Bishop Family Dental, as your Salt Lake City Veneer Dentist expert, can help you to achieve the goals that you have for your smile.
A veneer is a thin shell that is placed on top of a natural tooth and frequently used for restorations of the front teeth. They are custom made to the contour of your teeth and are bonded to the tooth’s original enamel. This ensures a complete and natural look.
Dr. Bishop will first prepare your tooth by removing a portion of the enamel. This is necessary so that the veneer will lay flat and in line with your gum tissue. After the tooth has been prepared, a temporary veneer will be secured. When your permanent veneers are ready Dr. Bishop can remove the temporary, clean the tooth and ensure that the new veneer is bonded to a perfect fit.
Use the same daily brushing and flossing as your natural teeth, when caring for your veneers. An Appropriate oral hygiene routine will help you keep them looking great for as long as possible.
While there is a short recovery time when getting veneers, your teeth will typically be sore for a few days after they have been prepared, the procedure is entirely worth it because in the end you will have a beautiful smile.
The veneer placement procedure is an excellent solution, because veneers can be used to transform your smile into one that looks perfect and beautiful. Using your natural teeth is a great way to eliminate the need for surgery, and the recovery time is reduced. Veneers are custom made to match your other teeth, they will look natural, and no one will be able to tell that you had any cosmetic dentistry work completed.
