You could have a healthy mouth full of teeth because you took care of them throughout the years. However, your teeth may have aesthetic issues like discoloration, cracks, or problems with their size or shape.
You don’t have to hide your smile when the solution may be dental veneers in Sterling. Veneers enhance the appearance of your smile, so you don’t continue smirking to mask your imperfections. With this aesthetic solution, you can smile big and brightly with teeth you’re proud to showcase.
Veneers are covers that fit over the outside of your teeth. These shells are customized to fit on your teeth, and you can even pick the color of them. They correct chips, stains, wear and tear, misalignments, and uneven spaces between your teeth.
Our dentist crafts veneers from composite resin or porcelain. Both varieties have benefits and drawbacks. For instance, composite resin tends to require our dentist to remove less of your natural teeth to place them. However, they don’t usually last as long. On the other hand, porcelain veneers last longer and don’t stain easily. For these reasons and more, porcelain veneers usually cost more. During your initial visit, our dentist near you discusses all the pros and cons and helps you decide on the ideal type for your needs.
Your first visit with a dentist near you for dental veneers consists of determining the type of veneers, the number, and all the other specifics of the treatment. You’ll also receive an x-ray. Our dentist wants to make sure veneers are a safe solution for you.
When preparing for dental veneers, our dentist removes a thin layer of your tooth. This roughs up the surface of each tooth, so our dentist can affix the dental veneers in Sterling at WestLake Dental Care. Our dentist will also need to make an impression of your teeth to send to the laboratory.
After your veneers return from the lab, a dentist near you places a special dental adhesive on the front of your teeth. Next, our dentist positions the veneers and uses a UV light to speed up the drying process.
