Veneers are wafer-thin, tooth-shaped shells that look just like the front-facing portion of your visible teeth. They’re permanently affixed to your teeth to cover up minor cosmetic imperfections and give your smile an instant upgrade.
What conditions do veneers treat?
Because veneers work by covering up cosmetic imperfections, they can treat a wide range of conditions, like:
Widely spaced teeth
Teeth that are badly worn
Discolored teeth that haven’t responded to professional whitening treatments
Veneers can also serve non-cosmetic purposes, as well, like reinforcing a tooth that’s been slightly cracked or damaged.
Like any restoration, veneers improve the appearance of your smile, which can be instrumental in boosting your confidence and self-esteem.
As a restorative procedure, veneers also have a number of advantages over other options. They’re stain resistant and well-tolerated by gum tissue, and they don’t require you to shave as much enamel off of your natural teeth as crowns and bridges do, giving you a better-looking smile with an even more minimally invasive procedure.
Your journey towards a better smile with veneers begins with a consultation at Life Bloom Dental. You and Dr. Cho discuss your cosmetic goals and select the size, shape, and color for your veneers that best enhance your smile while complementing the aesthetic features of your face.
Next, Dr. Cho makes room for the veneers by shaving off a layer of enamel from your teeth. The amount of enamel that he removes is equivalent to the thickness of the veneers, which is very thin.
Once your teeth are prepared, Dr. Cho takes an impression of your smile. He sends this impression to a lab that fabricates your veneers to fit comfortably in your mouth and blend in seamlessly with your smile. He fits you with temporary veneers to wear while you wait for your permanent ones to come back from the lab, which typically takes a week or so.
You come back to Life Bloom Dental for another visit once your permanent veneers are ready. Dr. Cho swaps out your temporary veneers for the permanent ones, and checks to make sure that the fit and appearance are to your liking. If everything looks good, he seals them in place and sends you out into the world with a beautiful smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
