What are veneers?
Dental veneers are tooth-like porcelain shells that fit over the top of natural teeth to improve their shape, color, texture, and overall appearance. The process of getting veneers is simple and painless, yet yields a long-lasting, beautiful smile. The Back of the Wasatch Family and Cosmetic Dentistry team is highly trained in placing dental veneers.
What are the benefits of veneers?
Some of the benefits you can expect when choosing veneers at Back of the Wasatch Family and Cosmetic Dentistry include:
Veneers improve the look of front teeth that are stained, misshapen, jagged, or too small. They offer the gorgeous teeth that you deserve, which may dramatically improve your quality of life.
Are veneers right for me?
To find out if you’re a candidate for veneers, your Back of the Wasatch Family and Cosmetic Dentistry provider reviews your oral health history, examines your gums and teeth, and takes digital dental X-rays when necessary.
They personalize a cosmetic dental treatment that offers exceptional results. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, your provider treats these conditions before veneer placement.
What happens during veneer placement?
The first step in getting veneers is for your dentist to digitally scan your teeth, allowing them to create custom-fitted veneers just for you.
To place veneers, they remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth and then permanently bond the veneers to the front and sides of your teeth. The procedure isn’t painful, and there’s no downtime afterward.
You can resume a normal routine immediately after getting veneers. When cared for properly, veneers can last 10-20 years or longer in some instances. Take good care of your teeth and veneers by brushing after meals, flossing every day, and seeing your dentist every six months for dental cleanings. Avoid chewing on ice, pens, and other hard objects.
