Do your teeth lack their pearly whiteness of old? For many of us, achieving the best dental health possible means having the biggest and brightest smile, so it should come as no surprise that when your smile starts to fade and darker times begin to set into your mouth, finding a way back to the better days of a sparkling smile is a top priority on everyone's list.
At Charles E. Scholler, D.D.S., the lasting solution to a fading smile is always on hand, as Dr. Scholler and his expert dental staff have just the thing for even the most dire dental dilemmas! Perhaps the most popular way to get back that beautiful smile is through veneers, thin slices of porcelain or plastic which are attached to the front of your teeth. They can change the aesthetics of your smile completely, whitening and correcting the shape of your teeth.
Veneers are very simple to have done, so check out some highlights of the veneer application process below:
Step 1: Creation
First, a model of your teeth from your primary dentist is given to expert dental lab technicians who create the perfect veneer coating to accommodate your teeth. The model itself is made after your dentist lightly buffs your teeth to allow for the veneer's added thickness; this process can require a local anesthetic.
Step 2: Preparation
Bonding your own personalized veneers to your teeth typically takes just an hour or two at most. The veneers are fastened onto your teeth with water or glycerine and can be altered using different shades of cement to look normal next to your other teeth.
Step 3: Application
Finally, your teeth are cleansed with special chemicals allowing the veneers to be bonded on. Cement is then inserted between your actual tooth and your veneer, before an expert laser releases a catalyst that immediately solidifies the cement. With that, you've got your very own set of pearly whites again!
