The cosmetic dental team at Dr. Brian J. Hockel’s office can improve your smile with dental veneers. Made of top-quality dental porcelain, a veneer fits directly over the front portion of a tooth and hides minor imperfections in your smile. Typically, veneers are only applied to teeth that are visible when you smile, such as your front teeth. Veneers can be an ideal option to achieving that Hollywood smile that you have always wanted.
What Problems Can Veneers Correct?
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Badly stained or discolored teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Uneven or slightly misaligned teeth
A veneer can be applied to improve the appearance of a single tooth or all of the visible front teeth in your mouth.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
Veneers can be a quick fix to straighten teeth or provide permanently white teeth without dealing with orthodontics or a series of whitening treatments. However, because veneers are fabricated from top-quality dental porcelain and built to be a long-lasting cosmetic treatment, the procedure carries a significant cost. However, we can lay out the entire cost in advance with a treatment plan and offer interest-free financing options. A member of our administrative staff will be happy to provide more information.
What should I expect during the procedure?
First, a small portion of the front of your tooth or teeth will be removed. Our staff then will take impressions of your bite and teeth, which are sent to a dental laboratory where your veneers will be custom designed to look like natural teeth and make a perfect fit inside your mouth, thus maintaining your bite alignment.
We will place temporary veneers over your teeth to protect them and provide an aesthetic look while your permanent ones are being handcrafted.
At your second visit, the dentist will bond the veneers directly to your teeth, leaving you with a natural and beautiful smile.
