A durable, lifelike way to create a smile that radiates beauty and confidence with dental veneers
Z Dentistry in Reno, Nevada, fully appreciates the power and importance of an eye-catching smile. And every day, we play a critical role in those positive life-altering transformations. Dental veneers are one of the best ways to dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth, the central feature of your smile. When in the hands of our friendly and skilled dentist, Dr. Aaron Sanders, your veneers will boost the look of your entire face and your self-confidence.
Get to know veneers
Dental veneers are ultra-thin coatings of ceramic. The dental ceramic is prepared to blend in flawlessly with the color and appearance of the surrounding teeth. Once applied and “fixed” or secured to the front surfaces of the teeth, veneers cover up cosmetic imperfections. These imperfections include:
- Minor spacing issues, such as gaps between the teeth
- Small cracks
- Deep stains and stubborn discoloration
- Teeth that are irregularly sized or irregularly shaped
The veneers process
Dr. Aaron will start with examining your teeth, gums, and mouth. Before moving forward with treatment, he confirms that veneers will address your concern. If dental disease is the cause of your concern, he will recommend restorative treatment. In this case, Dr. Aaron may recommend alternatives such as fillings or crowns.
If veneers are appropriate, Dr. Aaron starts by buffing a tiny amount of natural enamel from the teeth that are to be treated. This creates space for the veneer to fit on top of the tooth. One of the great advantages to veneers is that only a small amount of tooth structure is removed. This is where Dr. Aaron’s artistry and experience shine – proper shaping of the teeth is essential for the veneers to look and feel natural. Also, a well-fitted veneer will bond securely to the tooth. Once the teeth are prepared, Dr. Aaron will take several impressions. One set of impressions are used to create temporary veneers that you will wear until the next visit. These temporary veneers will match the look of the final veneers but are made from a special temporary material. The second set of impressions are sent to our skilled dental lab ceramists. They will make the veneers. Then, you will return to our office in northwest Reno to have the veneers permanently secured to your teeth.
Veneers look, feel, and function like natural tooth enamel. They are highly durable. With consistent brushing and flossing at home and professional care at Z Dentistry, veneers last for many years. Because they are so strong, veneers are a great value.
With that being said, Dr. Aaron understands that cost should never stand in the way of dental care our patients want and deserve. During your initial visit, we are happy to discuss options such as our in-house Smile Saving Membership plans and affordable financing through CareCredit®.
