Have you always wondered why certain people have perfect-looking teeth, yet you struggle with a myriad of dental imperfections? Well, a few people are lucky enough to have been born with perfect teeth. The rest just discovered the secret of dental veneers. If you’d like to be in on the secret, come to us at Embrace Dental. We have restored hundreds of smiles in the Sparks, NV area, and hope that we can do the same for you.
First things first—what are veneers? Dental veneers, sometimes known as porcelain veneers, are thin custom shells that are bonded to a tooth surface to change the look of a tooth. As such, dental veneers are an excellent choice if you have stained, chipped, or cracked teeth. Veneers may also be used to correct misalignment and to seal gaps between teeth.
Our dentist in Sparks, NV offers veneers to patients of all ages. Children too can get dental veneers on their permanent teeth, but only after our dentist performs a thorough assessment to determine whether veneers are the best option.
We typically can completely veneers in one appointment with our CEREC technology. Here’s what happens during each phase:
Our dentist has to determine whether you’re a good fit for veneers during your first appointment. Teeth that are extensively decayed or damaged may require alternative treatments such as dental crowns. If you’re a good fit, our dentist will create a customized treatment plan and schedule your next appointment or begin same-day treatment.
This step may happen during your first or second appointment. For this step, our dentist in Sparks, NV will carefully and gently remove a conservative amount of tooth structure that’s equivalent to the thickness of the veneers. After this, your veneers are made with our CEREC machine in the office.
Bonding is the final step in dental veneers treatment. Our dentist will first clean your teeth and etch them to enable attachment of the veneers. Once the teeth are thoroughly polished and etched, the dentist will bond the veneers onto your teeth using dental cement.
With a lifespan of up to 20 years, dental veneers are the perfect dental investment. They can make your smile beautiful and youthful without being conspicuous as they’re made to resemble your natural teeth. Veneers don’t require extensive enamel removal, which makes them a friendlier restoration option.
If you’re in Sparks, NV and looking to restore the beauty of your smile, give Embrace Dental a call today.
