What can dental veneers correct?
Dental veneers can correct several dental issues. Thanks to their design, veneers simply cover the surface of the tooth to change its look. This means that a variety of dental issues can be taken care of at once, including:
- discolored teeth
- stained teeth
- uneven teeth
- slight overcrowding
- slight under crowding
- slight misalignments
- too-narrow or too-wide teeth
Am I a good candidate for dental veneers?
A good candidate for veneers should be in good dental health. Their teeth should be free from tooth decay and gum disease and able to undergo the procedure without complications. Patients should understand that their veneers require a process to prepare the teeth beforehand, rendering this procedure irreversible and permanent. The process involves removing a small layer of enamel from the surface of the tooth to aid in the bonding process between the tooth and the veneer.
Dental Veneers in Costa Mesa, CA
Before placing your final restorations, your dentist will take an impression of your mouth to use as the basis for the veneers’ design. A dental laboratory creates the restorations, then sends them back to your dentist’s office. This process takes about two weeks, after which you will have another appointment to place the final restoration. In the meantime, your dentist may place temporary veneers to protect your teeth.
