There are people who have teeth that are worn down. Others have teeth that have gaps between them or are chipped and broken. These conditions could have been the result of excessive fluoride, root canal treatment, discoloration from resin fillings or stains and more. One way to successfully treat all these situations is with dental veneers.
These are thin shells made with composite resin or porcelain. Veneers are custom made so they easily fit over teeth. They are designed to provide an attractive appearance that has a natural look. Veneers in Chesterfield are difficult to stain and are able to provide those who use them with a very nice smile. They will last a long time because they are very strong. Application of dental veneers requires less tooth enamel be removed when compared to other dental procedures such as a cap or crown.
The first step to getting veneers in Chesterfield involves a dentist examining a person’s teeth to determine if veneers would benefit them. It’s possible that X-rays may be taken. A dentist will then remove approximately half a millimeter of enamel from the surface of a patient’s tooth. A model impression of a person’s tooth will be made. This impression will then sent to a dental laboratory. This is when a person’s individual veneer will be constructed and this could take up to four weeks.
Veneers by Chesterfield dentists can last as long as 25 years and very seldom require more than regular hygiene to maintain. A patient can choose the color of their porcelain veneers. The tissue around porcelain veneers does not become damaged. They are able to provide those who use them with a great appearance.
