Veneers Can Quickly Improve Your Look

Dental veneers are a great catch-all cosmetic dentistry solution. They work much like false fingernails, if that makes sense. When your teeth have been badly damaged or simply have a few obvious imperfections, a dental veneer will make your smile look completely restored.

Having white and seemingly well-aligned teeth will make you look better and feel better about yourself. And others will form a positive first impression based on all that.

So, what exactly are veneers? They are durable shells that get applied to the front of your existing teeth.

We use tooth-colored materials like porcelain, laminates, composite materials, and zirconia because they can provide the most realistic, natural look.

The Process Is Fast

Applying your veneers can be done easily in just a few brief visits to our Butte, MT dentist’s office.

Here’s what the process looks like:

Consultation and Diagnosis: You will meet with us to decide if veneers are the best cosmetic option for your needs.

Preparation: If we decide to move forward, we will first numb your mouth to eliminate any discomfort. A small amount of enamel is then removed from the surface of your teeth to make room for the veneers. Digital scans and impressions of your mouth are taken and sent to a lab. Don’t worry, if the removal of the enamel makes your teeth unattractive, we can place temporary veneers until your permanent veneers come in.

Bonding: When your veneers are delivered from the lab, each one is temporarily placed on your tooth and checked for fit and color. We will trim and shape the veneer to be exactly the right fit. The cement we use can adjust the color, if needed. Your teeth will be polished, cleaned and etched (roughened for a stronger bond). The veneers are then bonded permanently, one at a time, to the fronts of your teeth. Any excess bonding material is removed, and the veneers get a final going over to make sure they are placed and shaped perfectly.

Follow-up: We will want to make sure that your veneers are still where they need to be and that your gums are responding well to the presence of the veneers.
