Veneers in Las Vegas
Veneers are a great way to restore your natural smile and improve the shape of teeth that are damaged, misshapen or stained. At Smiles for Life Family Dentistry, Dr. Quinn and Dr. Mitchell are experts at creating and installing veneers.
What Do Veneers Do?
Essentially, veneers are thin, porcelain shells custom built to fit over your existing teeth. They hide imperfections in your natural smile, like stains, gaps and chips. These wafer-thin shells are bonded to your teeth, providing a permanent solution and the smile you’ve always wanted.
Should I Get Veneers?
If you want that perfect, natural-looking smile, veneers might be right for you. However, you’ll want to consult with dentists like Dr. Quinn or Dr. Mitchell to determine if you’re a good candidate. The application of veneers is irreversible. To apply them, a thin layer of tooth enamel must be removed to ensure a seamless fit. Your dentist will fit you with temporary veneers to ensure you’re comfortable with them, but it’s definitely something to consider before diving into the procedure.
The Benefits of Veneers
Veneers offer a wide variety of benefits. Here are three of the biggest advantages of getting veneers from Smiles for Life Family Dentistry.
- A Beautiful, Natural Smile: When applied by a seasoned dentist like Dr. Quinn or Dr. Mitchell, porcelain veneers will look natural and beautiful.
- Long-Lasting Results: Veneers can last for up to 20 years, making them a cost-effective, long-term solution for a beautiful smile.
- Veneers Reinforce Your Natural Teeth: Since they are permanently bonded to your existing teeth, veneers reinforce and strengthen your tooth structure.
What to Expect During Veneer Placement
Veneers are usually created and applied in two appointments. First, you’ll go through an initial consultation. At this time, Dr. Quinn and Dr. Mitchell will examine your mouth to determine if the procedure is right for you.
If veneers are recommended, about 0.5mm of enamel will be removed from your teeth. Molds and x-rays will be taken of your mouth and sent to the veneer manufacturer. After 2-4 weeks, you’ll come back to Smiles for Life Family Dentistry for application.
The veneer application process is quite simple. They will be placed on your teeth to ensure a perfect fit, and they’ll be adjusted and trimmed as necessary. Then, your teeth will be cleaned, polished, and etched to provide a strong hold for the dental bonding material.
Dental cement will be applied to your tooth, and then the veneer will be placed and bonded using a specialized UV light. After excess dental cement is removed, the process is complete. You can walk out of our office with a brand new smile!
