Veneers are a great way to improve your smile. Whether you suffer from a cosmetic problem like staining or discoloration on your teeth, a chipped tooth, or even crooked teeth, veneers can conceal the problem and give you back a beautiful smile. At Artistic Dentistry in Huntsville, AL, Dr. Michael Pugh and his staff are experienced in applying veneers with exceptional results for patients of all ages.
Benefits of Veneers
A primary benefit of veneers is the immediate positive transformation they’ll have on your smile once applied. Veneers can instantly mask a variety of tooth imperfections you might feel self-conscious about. Veneers can give you a smile you love. You might even find yourself smiling more! Many patients with veneers experience a boost in their self-confidence.
Another benefit of veneers is that they look like your natural teeth because they are custom made to fit over your existing teeth. Additionally, your dentist will match the color of the veneers to your surrounding teeth. Further, since the veneers are bonded to your teeth, they have the potential to last a lifetime. With good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups, you can ensure yours do.
Dr. Pugh and the Huntsville, AL area dental professionals at Artistic Dentistry have extensive experience applying custom-fit veneers. They can help you achieve the smile you desire.
Veneers are made from porcelain or plastic and applied to the front of your tooth to change it’s shape or improve its color. While veneers are quite thin, they do add a bit of thickness so the teeth they will be applied to are gently buffed to remove a small amount of enamel. This process allows the veneer to sit flush with the surrounding teeth once set in place.
Veneers are created specifically for each individual patient. A mold is taken of the area where the veneers will be applied. The mold is then sent to a dental lab where veneers are custom made to fit the patient’s teeth. Once the veneers are ready, your dentist will bond them to your teeth. Your dentist will first check the fit and color of the veneers before permanently affixing them to your teeth. When ready, the veneers will be applied to your teeth using a special cement. With proper care, your new veneers can last a lifetime.
