Cover Cosmetic Imperfections
Veneers in Wilmington
With veneers, you can cover up a wide range of cosmetic issues such as stained, slightly crooked, crowded, gapped, misshapen, or chipped teeth in just a few appointments. Treatment with veneers can restore your smile and help you feel great about how you look. This procedure is minimally-invasive and cost-effective, making it a popular option for patients who would like to improve their smiles without surgery or a big expense.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain ceramic materials, which are designed to fit around your teeth and cover up the front chewing surface. They are typically only placed on the front teeth, and can treat a variety of different cosmetic issues. Whether your teeth are stained, chipped, slightly gapped, or misshapen, veneers can give you a bright, brilliant smile. Veneers look and feel completely natural, are stain-resistant, and they can easily last for a decade or more with proper care.
The Veneer Placement Process
Placing veneers typically only takes two appointments. During your first appointment, your mouth will be cleaned and numbed. Then, a very thin layer of enamel will be removed in order to ensure that the veneers fit seamless onto your teeth and look completely natural. Next, dental impressions and photos of your mouth will be taken. These images will be sent to an outside lab and used to create your custom veneers. While you wait, you’ll be sent home with a temporary set of veneers to protect your teeth.
When your permanent veneers arrive at our office, we will clean and prepare your teeth for placement. Dr. Friberg will check to ensure that your veneers fit perfectly, then he will bond them permanently to your teeth with a special dental cement. You’ll leave our office after your second appointment with a fresh, new smile!
Are Veneers Right For Me?
Veneers are a cosmetic treatment, so they should only be used to treat patients who have healthy mouths and no severe damage. If your mouth is healthy and free of any major oral health conditions like gum disease or tooth decay, you will most likely be a good candidate for veneers.
