Veneers

Veneers are designed to help your smile look its best. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are customized to fit your teeth perfectly. When bonded to your teeth, they can make your smile beautiful and flawless. Veneers can enhance your smile by:

  • Correcting crooked teeth
  • Cosmetically perfecting your smile
  • Repairing chipped or worn teeth
  • Fixing misshapen teeth
  • Disguising severe discolorations/stains on teeth
  • Correcting teeth that are too small or too large
  • Fixing unwanted/uneven spaces between teeth

Procedure

Receiving your porcelain veneers will take two appointments at our office. In the first visit, your teeth will be prepared to receive the veneers. They will be lightly buffed and the surface of your teeth will be shaped to prepare for bonding and the added thickness of the veneers. Molds (impressions) of your teeth will also be taken to ensure that the veneers will fit your teeth perfectly. The shade closest to your surrounding teeth will then be chosen by the dentist.

At the second dental visit, the veneers will be bonded to your teeth. It is important, after the procedure, to follow the recommended care instructions given by Dr. Ufomata. Consistently maintaining proper dental hygiene (brushing, flossing, etc.) will support the life and function of your veneers.
