Porcelain veneers are custom made, thin shells that cover your teeth to create a brighter, consistent, and more attractive smile. If you are self-conscious about the color, shape, or overall appearance of your teeth, veneers can offer a make-over-worthy improvement to your smile. They are resistant to staining and discoloration, and in most cases will be stronger than your original natural teeth.
Veneers are thin covers made of porcelain or resin material that are custom-fit to adhere to your teeth to give them a desired, classically shaped look and healthy color. Whether your teeth are cracked or chipped, crooked or misaligned, or you’re just not pleased with their natural shape, veneers can be used to improve their alignment, shape, and appearance. You may be a candidate for veneers if your teeth are stained beyond bleaching, chipped or worn, crooked or misshapen, or unevenly spaced.
New Albany Smiles offers dental veneer options to choose from so you can walk out of the office feeling confident with a beautiful smile.
To begin the veneer process, our team will take an impression of your mouth for our on-site lab to create the custom-made veneers. Creating porcelain veneers can take several days, so we may give you temporary veneers to wear in the meantime.
On your next visit, Dr. Angart will begin to place the veneers by slightly altering the surface of the tooth to be covered in order for it to bond to the tooth and for it to be properly fit. Before the veneer is bonded to your tooth, Dr. Angart will make sure the size is appropriate. The next step is to clean your natural teeth and bond the veneer to the clean tooth.
When the process is complete, you can feel confident you’ve received the highest standards in dental materials and care that will bring your smile to a whole new level of beauty.
