Dental Veneers With Your Chesterfield Dentist
Dental veneers are thin shells that match the color of your teeth. They are placed on top of the front of your teeth to improve their color, size, or shape. For those who suffer from tooth discoloration due to dental procedures or stains from food or medications, veneers for teeth can be the perfect solution. When teeth do not match one another due to differing sizes or shapes, or your teeth are chipped or worn down, a dental veneer placed on each of the problem teeth can greatly improve your smile’s aesthetic and increase your confidence.
Dental Veneers Procedure
Your Chesterfield dentist near Town and Country will first talk with you about the results you want to achieve. He will examine your teeth, take some x-rays, and make a plan that will suit your needs. Your teeth will then need to be prepared for the veneers by being trimmed or shaved down. When they are created, your veneers for teeth will be sent back to your dentist. Next, the porcelain veneers will be bonded to your teeth. This involves cleaning and etching the tooth so that the veneer will hold. To place the dental veneer, your dentist will use a bonding agent, cement, and a light that activates the bonding chemicals in the cement. Your dentist will check up on you after the procedure to ensure that the veneer has bonded properly and you are completely satisfied with your new smile.

Porcelain veneers improve the color and shape of the tooth and reflect light in the same way that natural teeth do. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant, scratch-resistant, and durable, and their color does not change over time.
