Dr. Dandois is an excellent dentist. I have known him for many years and he performed several difficult procedures like root canal, couple of implants and few bridges. He is extremely detail oriented and will not take any shortcuts. His dental skills and knowledge of his profession are without a doubt one of the best in the area. He continually attends seminars and dental studies of the newest techniques to improve service to his patients. I would strongly recommend Dr Dandois to anybody that needs any dental work. -viaShow more
Veneers have become a buzzword and for good reason. Simple, fast and painless, your smile can become movie star perfect in 2 dental visits.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are often referred to as “Instant Orthodontics”. Think you need braces? A substantial aesthetic effect can be obtained with a veneer and minimal tooth preparation is required.
A dental veneer is a thin layer of synthetic material (porcelain or composite) that is bonded to the tooth’s surface. Veneers are a great alternative to otherwise painful dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.
Common problems that Veneers will address:
- Spaces between the teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
Applying VeneersVeneers are applied to the teeth in 2 visits to the dentist:
- Visit # 1 Veneer Preparation: The teeth are prepared by removing 0.3 to 0.5 mm of enamel (the thickness of a fingernail) to allow room for the veneer layer. An impression of the teeth is taken and sent to the specialized dental laboratory that will create the veneers.
- Visit #2 Veneer Bonding: Bonding involves all the steps that permanently attach the veneer to the tooth. After a cleaning of the tooth, the veneer is bonded to the tooth with a special dental cement. This dental cement is then hardened with an ultra violet light.
