Bartlesville Veneers

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded on top of teeth. An aesthetic dentist works in conjunction with a dental laboratory to fabricate these custom restorations. Attractively designed veneers should fit a patient's smile, face and personality. If done correctly, they're durable and resistant to staining and chipping.

Veneers are frequently used to create smiles that are beautiful while avoiding removing too much of the patient's teeth structure. Types of staining that can be hidden with veneers included tetracycline and erythromycin staining. The base of veneers can be opaquely designed to hide cases of severely stained teeth underneath. A wonderful appearance can usually be attained with these restorations when proper surface texture and coloring is used. They can lengthen, whiten and even straighten teeth to give patients a functional and beautiful smile. One major advantage of veneers is that patients don't have to wait for years to see results as they do with treatments such as braces or invisalign. Even fairly significantly misalignment of teeth can be covered with only two appointments only two weeks apart.

These restorations remove less tooth structure that other conventional dental restorations such as crowns. Also, unlike using composite bonding techniques to build up and whiten teeth, these restorations don't stain or wear with time and can have a much more natural appearance. Your cosmetic dentist will use the best method for each patient to create a beautiful smile. Veneers are just one method dentists employ, frequently other procedures such as teeth whitening gel, cosmetic tooth reshaping, and full ceramic crowns and various other techniques are used in conjunction to create wonderful smiles.
