Not only can dental veneers make you look younger and boost your confidence, they can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed about. Because not all our patients at Royal Lane Dental Center are familiar with the benefits of dental veneers, today we want to spend some time helping you get to know what veneers can do for your smile.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that we bond to the front of your natural tooth. Not only can veneers give you a whiter and brighter smile, they can also improve its shape and symmetry! Veneers can hide broken or damaged teeth, cover gaps, and mask minor alignment issues. As an added bonus, dental veneers do not stain like natural teeth. With the proper care (regular brushing, flossing, and visits to our office), your dental veneers can last upwards from 15 to 20 years!
How Long Does It Take to Get Dental Veneers?
Veneers are generally placed over two appointments. During the first appointment, we will discuss your goals for your smile, provide a cost estimate, and design the perfect veneers to suit these goals and your dental needs. If you are certain you want to proceed, we will remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to ensure a seamless fit. Then, we will take a mold of your natural teeth so we can custom-create your new veneers. Once your veneers are completed, we’ll bring you back for a second appointment. We will then bond these veneers to your teeth and check that you’re happy with your new smile.
Are Dental Veneers Right for You?
Don’t just take our word for it — listen to the stars! A multitude of celebrities, including Zac Efron, Victoria Beckham, and Ben Affleck, have utilized dental veneers to achieve a smile ready for the big screen.
