Dental Veneers  in Broken Arrow, OK

If you have gaps between your teeth or have teeth that are stained, crooked, cracked, or poorly shaped, you can change your smile with veneers. Veneers are thin shells made from either ceramics or composite resins designed to cover your teeth’ front side. Veneers are custom-made to look like and blend in with your natural teeth. Our dentist in Broken Arrow, OK, recommends the desired type of veneer based on your need.

The following steps are involved  in ceramic veneers.

First, if necessary, the dentist removes a small amount of enamel from the tooth to make room for the veneer. Your teeth are cleaned, and the ceramic veneers are then bonded to the teeth. Next, the dentist makes an impression of the prepared teeth and determines the veneer shade best for you. The images are sent to a dental laboratory to make veneers just for you, this can take several days, or some dentists have a lab in their office. Finally, the dentist places the veneers on your teeth to check the fit and shape after any adjustments.
The advantages of ceramic veneers are that they’re solid and durable, smooth and translucent surface, look very natural, and are resistant, sustaining. The other type of veneer is composite resin veneer. First, the dentist prepares the tooth and carefully bonds and sculpts the composite material onto your tooth. Second, a special light is used to harden the composite, and third, the veneer is smoothened and polished to look like a natural tooth. The advantages of composite resin veneers are that they may require less tooth enamel removal than ceramic veneers, and you may need fewer visits to the dentist. Sometimes these veneers take just one stop, and composite resin veneers are easy to replace if they’re damaged. Remember that getting a veneer is not a reversible process since some of your tooth enamel has been removed to make room for the veneer. Although many people can benefit from veneers, they’re not for everyone.

Who are the candidates for Veneers?

With the help of veneers, you can smile with confidence. Before a veneer is made, your teeth must be healthy and free of decay. Patients who clench or grind their teeth are not good candidates for veneers because the thin veneers may chip or break. Your dentists can treat these conditions like any dental restoration over time, and veneers can come loose with wear, and the patient might need new ones. Making a small change to your appearance can significantly impact how you look and feel. If you’re interested in enhancing your smile with veneers, speak with our dentist in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
