When you have a smile you’re proud of, you feel like you can take on the world. However, when you have a smile you’re hiding, it can cause severe emotional distress. We understand how important it is to love your smile. You don’t have to settle for hiding or hating your smile. Dr. Budhani at Amazing Dental offers dental veneers to give you a smile that you won’t want to hide from the world.
What Are Dental Veneers
Veneers are thin shells that are affixed to the front of your teeth to improve the appearance of your teeth. They can change the size, shape, or color of your teeth, and they can even reduce or eliminate the appearance of small gaps between your teeth.
They are a great way to get the beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of. Hiding your smile doesn’t have to be a part of your daily routine.
What Veneers Are Used For
- Gapped teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
Kinds of Veneers Available
At Amazing Dental, Dr. Budhani offers two types of veneers: porcelain and composite resin veneers.
- Porcelain: These are made of a durable, stain-resistant material that is commonly used. The porcelain gives your veneers a very natural-looking appearance. Because of the durability of porcelain, these will generally last a long time and they don’t stain as easily as tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers do not require as much preparation of the tooth as other types, meaning that you will get to keep more of your existing tooth structure. However, these are made specifically for you in the lab, so getting porcelain veneers requires two office visits.
- Composite resin: Composite resin veneers, unlike porcelain, are not made in a lab but are instead applied directly to the surface of your tooth. The composite resin is a tooth-colored bonding material that Dr. Budhani applies to your teeth with minimal tooth preparation. While this is a cost-effective alternative to porcelain, it typically doesn’t last as long. To learn more about it, visit our bonding page.
What To Expect
Getting porcelain veneers takes two visits to Dr. Budhani. During your first visit, he will prepare your teeth by thinning the enamel so that he can effectively bond the veneers to your teeth. Following the tooth preparation, Dr. Budhani will take an impression of your teeth so that the lab will custom-make your veneers. Depending on how much of the tooth structure was removed, you will be fitted with temporary veneers before you leave your first appointment.
During your second appointment, Dr. Budhani will remove your temporaries and check to make sure that they fit appropriately. Once they are perfectly adjusted to your smile, Dr. Budhani will permanently affix them to the surface of your tooth.
Applying composite resin veneers is typically a same-day treatment. Dr. Budhani will prepare your teeth and sculpt directly on your tooth. Once you and Dr. Budhani are satisfied with the appearance, it will be hardened using a high-intensity light. After all of your veneers have been applied and hardened, the composite resin will be polished, giving you natural-looking teeth in just one visit.
