Hi! Welcome to the Love Your Smile – Dr. Stephen Malfair dental blog where we take the time to answer dental questions. Today we are focusing on fabulous veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.
Dental veneers (also called laminates) are custom-made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can correct a variety of problems including:
4. Teeth that are misshapen
5. Teeth that are too short
6. Teeth that are misaligned
7. Gaps between teeth
To begin the veneer procedure, your dentist will make a model of your teeth. Following this, an experienced dental technician will use the model to make the veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed. Today’s veneer process leaves most of your healthy tooth structure.
Please call 250-860-8900 and a member of our caring staff can answer any questions you have about veneers. We can also tell you about other cosmetic dental procedures that have a dramatic impact.
