A veneer is a material that hides or covers up an unattractive surface.
In dentistry, a veneer is a lightweight piece of porcelain that covers the face of a damaged or unattractive tooth.
Dental veneers could be the cosmetic solution you’ve been dreaming of—one that can finally give you the smile you’ve always imagined. Take time to review some of the frequently asked questions that patients have about veneers, then schedule a visit to see dentist Dr. George Zatarain at Z Dentistry in Reno, NV.
How Are Veneers Designed and Placed?
Dental veneers are bonded to the front of a tooth. They are custom made by a technician from porcelain, yet are transparent and as light as a contact lens. Each veneer is shaped and curved at the edges so that they fit perfectly against your natural tooth. A strong dental bonding agent, colored for your unique smile and facial features, is used to attach each veneer to each individual tooth.
How Do Veneers Fix Your Smile?
Dental veneers fix chips, cracks, discoloration, tooth protrusion, and spaces between the teeth. Just about any dental imperfection can be improved with a set of veneers installed by your Reno, NV dentist.
Veneers are the natural choice when other options, like tooth whitening or resin bonding, won’t help. They also are the go-to when a patient has smile gaps but can’t wait months or years for an orthodontic (braces) treatment to fix them.
When Can You Show Off Your New Smile?
You’ll only have to wait a few weeks for your new smile. This is the ideal cosmetic treatment if you’re planning an important upcoming event and want to look your best.
