Veneers are thin, custom-made sheets of tooth-colored porcelain that cover the front surface of your teeth. They’re no thicker than a contact lens but dramatically improve the appearance of your smile and protect your teeth from damage. Veneers permanently correct cosmetic dental complaints.
If you have complaints about your smile, veneers can help. Dr. Peri may recommend them to correct issues such as:
Dr. Peri considers the current oral health and condition of your teeth. She gives you an image of what your smile will look like with the veneers so you can picture the outcome and decide if the procedure is right for you. The veneers are colored to match the shade of your natural teeth or to whiten them gently to boost your smile.
Porcelain veneers give your teeth a personalized shape, length, and color that enhances your overall smile. Dr. Peri helps you achieve a look that’s functional and natural while vastly improving your smile.
To apply veneers, Dr. Peri files off a small layer of your existing enamel to make space for the thin layer of porcelain that makes up the veneer. This way, you have enough room in your mouth and no interruption in tooth function.
She adheres to the customized veneer to your teeth using a light-sensitive resin. A specialized light helps it harden and your new smile is ready to go.
You don’t need to make changes to your oral hygiene habits when you have veneers. Brush twice daily, floss once daily, and schedule regular professional cleanings. Always alert the staff at your professional cleaning about your veneers so they can take care when cleaning to avoid any damage. With proper oral care, your veneers can last for decades.
