Veneers are custom-made porcelain that is placed over existing teeth to provide a healthy smile while restoring strength and functionality. Common reasons for dental veneers are to repair damaged, crooked or malformed teeth that are highly visible. Top cosmetic dentists can also place dental veneers over natural teeth for aesthetic purposes.
Positioning these small pieces of porcelain takes the skill and precision of a well-trained cosmetic dentist such as Dr. Warden. A lot can happen to people’s teeth during the ordinary course of their lives. They can be permanently stained by coffee, soda, nicotine or red wine. An injury can knock teeth out of alignment or the client wants to alter the natural formation they were born with. The top cosmetic dentist in Westerville uses dental veneers to fix dental problems such as worn enamel, discolored, chipped, misaligned, unnaturally small, cracked or uneven teeth. Veneers close spaces between teeth resulting in a straight, balanced smile full of white, sparkling teeth. Dental veneers are bonded to the existing teeth layer by layer to form a unique shape that looks natural and matches the surrounding teeth.
After determining that veneers are the best course of action for a client, an impression is taken and a wax-up of what the smile will look like is shown to the client. The patient approves and all his or her questions are answered. After that, the teeth that will have veneers are contoured and a fabricated set of temporary teeth is made. Any necessary adjustments are made and then a final set of veneers are bonded to the teeth. The results are immediate and the patient can walk out of the dental office with a brand-new set of sparkling, white and natural looking teeth.
