Hello! We are so glad you came to the Valrico dental health blog. This is the place where we take the time to answer some of the questions cosmetic dentistry patients in the Tampa area are curious about. Today we are discussing veneers. You may have heard the word veneer used in conjunction with cosmetic dentistry, and that is because they are a popular and effective cosmetic dentistry tool.
Veneers are covers for the front part of the teeth. They are usually used to correct tooth imperfections, such as chipping, staining, decay, or crooked teeth. Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.
The first step in the veneer process is to make a mold to work from. Your Brandon FL, Riverview FL, or Plant City dentist will make the model of your teeth. After that, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers.
It is important to note that because a little of the enamel from the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed, this process is usually irreversible. However, many patients are candidates for prepless veneers, which require no removal of enamel. Your dentist can help you determine if prepless veneers are right for you.
If you are in the Plant City area and are looking for a dentist, give Five Star Dental Care a call. My name is Dr. Jeff Bynum and I have been serving Valrico, Florida since 1996.
Please call 813-653-2273 and a member of our knowledgeable staff can answer any questions you have about veneers, teeth whitening, dental care, or smile makeovers.
