Veneers are very thin acrylic or ceramic shells that are bonded to the outside of the teeth. Veneers, whether made out of composite or ceramic material, can cover badly-stained teeth, chipped teeth, uneven teeth and large fillings. The advantage to doing a veneer instead of crown is that the tooth is minimally “prepped”. Most insurance companies classify these as non-covered cosmetic procedures.
On your first visit, Dr. Beer will discuss with you the pro’s and con’s between having a crown and a veneer based on your lifestyle, and what you want to accomplish.
Your next visit if you choose veneers Dr. Beer may numb your teeth depending on the amount of reduction to be done. He then removes part of the enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers.
Dr. Beer will make a mold (impression) of your teeth and send this to the lab where your veneers will be custom made.
You will return to our office in approximately 2 ½ weeks to bond your new veneers to your teeth one by one, using composite resin cement. Because veneers are very thin, the color mostly comes from the resin cement.
We will try to arrange your office visits to fit your schedule.
