At ToothDocs, dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. They are bonded to the front surface of the teeth and can be used to correct a wide range of cosmetic concerns, including chipped, stained, misaligned, or misshapen teeth. They can be used to correct minor cosmetic issues, such as stains or chips, or they can be used to improve the appearance of teeth that have been damaged or worn down.
When a patient is interested in veneers, the first step is to schedule a consultation with their dentist. During this appointment, the dentist in New York, will examine the patient’s mouth and determine if veneers are the right option for them. If the patient is a good candidate for veneers, the dentist will take X-rays and create a treatment plan.
Next, the dentist will prepare the teeth for the veneers by removing a thin layer of the enamel from the front surface of the tooth. This is necessary to make room for the veneer and ensure a proper fit. Once the teeth are prepped, the dentist will take an impression of the patient’s teeth and send it to a lab where the veneer will be custom-made to fit them.
When the custom veneers are ready, the patient will return to the office to have them placed. The dentist will first clean the teeth and then place the veneers using a special adhesive. Once in place, the dentist will check the fit and make any adjustments necessary to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.
