Veneers are a restorative and cosmetic dental treatment used to improve the appearance and function of chipped, cracked or discolored teeth. Treatment with veneers involves the placement of a thin piece of composite or porcelain to the front surface of a tooth in order to mask imperfections.
At Goldwater Dental, we offer a wide variety of veneers to suit your dental needs. These include traditional porcelain and composite veneers, branded veneers from Empress and Emax, and No-Prep veneers which can be applied to the teeth with minimum or no preparation.
Veneers are a less invasive treatment as compared to crowns and are ideal for correction of discoloration, minor alignment issues, or for changes in the size, shape and position of the teeth.
Advantages of Dental Veneers:
- They are resistant to stains
- They are a minimally invasive form of treatment
- They look and feel natural
- They are a quick and effective way to fix teeth gaps, overlaps, twists and shape
Maintaining Your Veneers
For most patients, the process of care required for veneers is the same as that for one’s natural teeth. All you need to do is brush twice a day, floss daily and keep your mouth healthy by visiting our office for preventive checkups and professional dental cleanings. We may recommend the use of a non-abrasive toothpaste to help you enhance the longevity of your veneers. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled to ensure that the veneers are comfortably placed in your mouth. For patients suffering from bruxism or cases of sleep apnea, we may recommend the use of a custom dental night guard while sleeping to prevent damage to your veneers. If cared for properly, veneer restorations can last for a long time.
