Dental veneers are thin shells of ceramic that we bond directly to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are simple and versatile, making them an excellent choice for patients who want to improve the appearance of their smile.
Dr. Lanik and our dental hygienists have many years of experience in making sure your veneers look beautiful and natural.
We will discuss the dental veneer procedure with you in-depth, but here are the basic steps to keep in mind while you are considering veneers:
Dr. Lanik will take an impression of your mouth to send to our highly skilled lab technicians, who will then build your veneer. As part of his consultation with you, he’ll recommend the best shape and shade for your smile goals.
Dr. Lanik will then etch the surface of the tooth which includes shaping down the enamel on the teeth.
Once the veneer is sent back from our lab, Dr. Lanik will place the veneer over top of your tooth and then bond it into place. He’ll make any needed adjustments to ensure your tooth function and look natural.
Much like dental bonding, your veneers can be damaged when you eat hard foods, crunch ice or try to open things with your teeth. Take care of them by brushing and flossing daily and visiting Peak Dental Arts twice a year for your dental exams and cleanings.
