Are Veneers Bad For Your Teeth?

If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, you are most likely wondering about dental veneers. The application of veneers to your teeth can fix your smile with Fayetteville, GA veneers. Dr. Edwin Richardson, Dr. Jonathan Robinson, and Dr. Lindsey Alvarez are all highly experienced dentists in this procedure at Dental Traditions. Learning about this dental procedure can help you to make an informed decision about correcting your smile.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are permanently applied to the front of teeth and can be made from several different substances such as porcelain or resin materials. They are made from a very thin layer of material that covers your teeth. They are usually used to cover discolored teeth, worn down teeth, or teeth that are broken or chipped. Veneers can correct teeth that are misaligned, shaped irregularly, or uneven, as well as cover gaps between teeth. As an added benefit, this procedure looks like natural and perfectly shaped teeth and not like dentures.

What is the Process of Getting Veneers?

You will visit your dentist and he will do an oral exam and x-rays to determine if your teeth and surrounding tissues are healthy. Veneers shouldn't be placed on decaying teeth, as the teeth will continue to decay. Your dentist will make an impression of your teeth and send them off for your veneers in Fayetteville, GA to be made. When they arrive at the dental office, your dentist will reshape your tooth's surface by removing some of the enamel that is the same thickness as your veneer. This part of the process is necessary to make the teeth porous so the veneers will bond well to them and it all ensures that they will feel like a patient's natural teeth and not change the patient's bite. Then he positions the tooth covering and it is cemented permanently in place.

Will This Process be Safe for Me?

Since your dental team takes x-rays of your mouth first, the procedure is definitely safe and not bad in any way for your teeth. The permanently fixed materials resist stains and look wonderful for many years to come. It's a permanent procedure that doesn't have to be repeated, such as teeth whitening.
