Are you concerned about the appearance of your teeth? Would you like a more gorgeous smile?
SummerHills Dental care specializes in beautiful veneers for your teeth.
Dental veneers are sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates. Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of semi translucent tooth-colored porcelain designed to cover the front surface of teeth. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size or length and resulting in an improved appearance.
Veneers are excellent for fixing crooked teeth, cracked teeth, misaligned teeth, teeth that are too long or too short, crowded teeth, and severely stained teeth, gapped teeth, or slightly chipped teeth.
Not all teeth are good candidates for veneers. Veneers work best when placed on healthy teeth that can provide adequate support and are fairly well aligned. Some minor alignment problems can be corrected with veneers. This is sometimes called “instant orthodontics.”
The procedure is done in two appointments. On the first, a small amount of surface enamel ( 1/50 inch) is buffed away, shaping each tooth which will receive a veneer. An impression of the teeth is made for use by our dental laboratory where the veneer is fabricated. Digital photographs and computer-aided shade matching are used to achieve the best possible cosmetic result. We utilize the computer for lab communications which more thoroughly helps in shade determination and veneer fabrication.
On the second appointment the veneers are gently placed on the teeth for your approval. When (and only when) you, Dr.Clusserath or associate, all agree that our veneers are fitting well, and properly colored, will we proceed to attach them to your teeth. This is a comfortable process wherein several liquids and gels are applied to your teeth, the veneers pressed on and cured by shining a laser-like curing light on the teeth.
Veneers require no special upkeep beyond regular good preventive dental hygiene with tooth brushing and flossing.
