More about Veneers
Veneers are thin coverings custom made to fit over the top of the surface of the teeth. They are super thin and made of a strong material, porcelain, in order to remain durable for a long period of time. When they are bonded to the teeth, they create a natural smile that is beautiful and white. Porcelain is a great material for this restoration as it doesn’t stain.
Because of dental technology advancements, these veneers are so thin they can’t be detected in the mouth. Some enamel is removed before the new veneers are placed over the surface of the patient’s teeth. These veneers can improve the color of the teeth by restoring their natural white. They also can improve both the size and shape of the teeth that have been worn down from teeth grinding. Both minor alignment and spacing issues can also be corrected by a Farmington dentist such as Dr. Harris too.
He takes a model of the patient’s teeth and creates wax veneers to make sure that the patient likes the fit and the look. After this is agreed upon, the actual veneers are created. After they are made, the patient has some of their tooth enamel etched away and the new veneers are placed on the front surfaces of the teeth.
