Dental issues that veneers can help with

Your smile is important regardless of who you are or where you are. If you are insecure about your smile, this can affect confidence and everyday life. Good news! Dental veneers can change the aspects you don’t like about your teeth for a stunning smile. 

Dental veneers are routinely used to fix.

  • Chipped or worn-down teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Severely discolored teeth
  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • Uneven or misshapen teeth

Dental veneers can be either composite or porcelain. Composite veneers involve bonding a tooth-colored material directly to your teeth. Although composite veneers may not be as long-lasting, they have incredible benefits for your smile. Porcelain veneers are the most popular. These veneers involve placing super-thin porcelain coverings on your teeth to camouflage your unsightly flaws. Porcelain veneers can last as many as 15-plus years, although they involve a bit of enamel alteration.

How dental veneers are placed

Whether you need composite or porcelain veneers, the process starts with a consultation with Dr. Brian Orcutt. We’ll evaluate your smile and discuss your aspirations to craft a personalized treatment plan. We aim to give you a smile that will help you feel proud and confident to face the world.

Composite veneers are placed in one day and involve placing tooth-colored material on your front-facing teeth. We’ll carefully sculpt, cure, and polish the material for a realistic appearance. Composite veneers can last 4-5 years with proper maintenance.

Porcelain veneers are lab-made, requiring at least 2-3 dental appointments. After your consultation, the dentist prepares your teeth by removing only a very tiny bit of the enamel. This step is crucial to accommodate the thickness of the veneers. Next, the dentist takes digital scans of the prepped teeth to create your customized veneers. 

When your veneers are ready, you’ll book another appointment for placement. After satisfactory adjustments, the dentist uses a strong dental adhesive to bond your veneers to your teeth.
