Another reason is that you have chipped or cracked teeth that areaffecting your confidence. Veneers can also be used to fix gaps between your teeth or to correct the shape of your teeth.
Veneers are a low-maintenance cosmetic dental treatment that can be easily incorporated into your oral hygiene routine?
During your initial visit, Dr. Kevin DeGroot will examine your teeth, discuss your concerns and goals, and determine if veneers are the right solution for you. If so, he will create a treatment plan that outlines the process and expected results.
The next step involves preparing your teeth for the veneers. This may involve removing a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth, taking impressions of your teeth, and sending them to a dental laboratory where your veneers will be custom-made.
Once your veneers are ready, you will return to our office for installation. Dr. Kevin will carefully bond the veneers to the front surface of your teeth using a special dental adhesive. He will then make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the veneers fit properly and look natural.
After the installation, Dr. Kevin will provide instructions on how to care for your new veneers. You may also be scheduled for a follow-up visit to ensure that your veneers are functioning properly and to address any concerns you may have.
