Considering Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are a common subject people want to know about to perfect their smile.
Dental Veneers can make a smile better!

Dental veneers can improve the appearance of teeth by changing the color, shape, length and even size.  A veneer is a custom-made, thin porcelain tooth colored shell that is bonded to the front of the tooth.  They are made of mostly porcelain, but resin dental material is used on some occasions.  Porcelain veneers mimic natural reflection of light better than resin.  Porcelain is also more resistant to stains and easier to keep white.

Dental veneers are a process that usually requires three appointments.  The first appointment will be a consultation to discuss if veneers are the right treatment plan for the patient.  Make sure to write down all questions before going to the consultation to be prepared to understand the whole treatment plan to achieve your dream smile. This would be the time to ask and discuss any questions.  The second appointment will be preparing the tooth for a dental veneer and scanning an impression for the lab. The third appointment will be the actual bonding of the veneers.

For many, dental veneers are a great investment for those who are unhappy with the cosmetic look of their teeth.  It has shown in many studies, that a great smile helps with self-esteem.  +Verde Pointe Dental Associates and Drs. +Kirk Kimmerling DDS and +Suzanna Aguilera invite new patients to visit the dental office to discuss dental veneers and options.
