Hi! Welcome to the Create A Smile, PC – Dr. Ken Moore dental blog where we take the time to answer dental questions. Today we are focusing on fabulous veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.
Dental veneers (also called laminates) are custom made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can fix a host of tooth problems including:
4. Teeth that are misshapen
5. Teeth that are too short
6. Teeth that are misaligned
7. Gaps between teeth
To create perfect-fitting veneers, your dentist will first create a model of your teeth. The next step is for an expert dental lab tech to fabricate your custom veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed. Today’s veneer process leaves most of your healthy tooth structure.
At Create a Smile, PC, in Bloomington, our services include general and cosmetic dentistry, as well as gum disease treatment, stop snoring & teeth grinding, sedation dentistry and emergency dental care. Schedule an appointment today!
