Dental veneers are restorative dental treatments made of thin shells of composite or porcelain. They are seamlessly bonded to the front surface of your teeth and can be used to mask cosmetic and functional imperfections in the teeth such as length, color, size and shape. The office of Chesterfield Hilltown Dental offers traditional porcelain and composite veneers and branded veneers from EMAX. When you visit our office for a consultation, we will help you determine the best veneer material to suit your needs.
Veneers can be used to address a wide variety of dental issues including:
- Teeth that have worn down
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Misaligned, misshapen or uneven teeth
- Deeply stained or discolored teeth
- Gapped teeth
Treatment with veneers begins with a consultation at our office, wherein we inspect your overall dental health, understand your expectations from the treatment and help you understand how veneers may work for you. When installing a veneer, we will need to remove some portion of the existing tooth surface to allow the thickness of the veneer. We may administer local anesthesia prior to doing this. Next, an impression of the teeth is taken which is used to make your custom veneer. A temporary restoration is placed on the prepared tooth for the time being. At your next visit, we will first temporarily place the permanent veneer over your teeth to see if it fits properly and matches the shade of your natural teeth. If required, adjustments will be made as necessary. Then, the veneer is permanently placed on the tooth using a special dental adhesive to bind it with the tooth surface.
