Are you troubled by chips, cracks, minor misalignment, gaps, uneven spacing, shape or deep discolorations on your front teeth? Our office is proud to offer premium quality veneers to help you mask these issues and attain the smile you desire.
At Ellenton Family Dental, we provide traditional porcelain and composite veneers and branded veneers from E.MAX.
A veneer is a thin piece of composite resin or porcelain which can be bonded to the front surface of your teeth to cover imperfections in your smile. These fixtures are custom-made for you by taking impressions of your teeth. When placed correctly by experienced dentists like ours, veneers give you a bright and beautiful smile that looks natural.
The process of placing veneers on your teeth usually takes place over two visits to our dental practice. During the first visit, we will evaluate the health of your smile to see if veneers will work for you. Once it has been decided that veneers are the ideal cosmetic solution for your teeth, we will prepare the tooth/teeth by buffing off a small portion of the natural enamel.
This is done to accommodate the veneer without affecting the thickness of your teeth. Then, we take impressions and make a note of the shade of your of your surrounding teeth. This information is transferred to a dental laboratory where your veneer will be made. If necessary, we place a temporary restoration for your prepared tooth. At your next appointment, your custom veneer is affixed to your tooth using dental cement. Finally, we will ensure that the veneer has bonded properly and looks perfect.
