Are Veneers What I’ve Been Looking For?

Posted .

What are veneers?
A veneer is a thin shell of tooth-colored material that is cemented on the front of a tooth to improve its appearance. Veneers can also provide strength to the treated tooth. Veneers are custom made, so they look very natural.

Can my smile benefit from veneers?
Dr. Sandy Pape may recommend veneers in Key West, Florida, if you have an aesthetic smile flaw like:

– Discolored teeth
– Misshapen teeth
– Chipped or cracked teeth
– Worn down teeth
– Slightly crooked teeth
– Gapped teeth

How are veneers placed?
First, a small amount of enamel is removed from the front of the tooth or teeth being treated. This allows room in the mouth for the veneers. Impressions of the tooth or teeth are taken so that the veneers can be made specifically for you. Once the veneer is complete, our dentist will check the fit and color before cementing the veneer in place.

How should I care for my veneers?
It may come as a surprise to you that veneers don’t require any extra care. Simply care for them as you would your regular teeth.
