Veneers: Just One Way a Dentist can Fix Your Teeth

Are your teeth discolored, misaligned, worn down, or broken? You can visit a cosmetic dentist in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and get some dental veneers for these issues. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or ceramic that are permanently bonded to your teeth. These prosthetics combine function and form quite seamlessly, making them the choice of many experienced dentists in the U.S. and the rest of the world.BackMountainDental

The procedure for getting veneers is quite simple. First, your teeth are examined by the dentist to see if they’re viable for veneers or not. If the teeth are too badly damaged or deteriorated, the dentist may recommend dental implants, crowns, or bridges instead. Second, some enamel from your teeth are removed to make way for the bonding process. Third, an impression of your teeth is made by the dentist, which will then be used to create the veneers themselves. Once they’re done, the veneers are then fused to your teeth using a bonding material like a composite resin.

With veneers, you can enjoy the benefits of having stronger, prettier, and more natural-looking teeth without having to wear dentures or implants like many people do. That said, you’ll have to be more careful around hot and cold foods from this point on because the removal of some enamel in your teeth makes them more sensitive to temperature. It’s also best for you to be mindful of what you bite; very hard materials like bones and ice can still damage your veneers.
