Dental veneers are a great enhancement for whiter, straighter, bolder, or shapelier smile. Winters Dental Excellence offers traditional and minimal-prep veneers to transform flawed teeth into stunning smiles. Veneers are custom shells of tooth colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. They are adhesively bonded to the anterior (front) of the tooth to correct teeth that may be chipped, discolored, misaligned, uneven, worn down, or abnormally spaced. Veneers are natural looking and are very stain resistant making them a popular choice amongst patients who wish to enhance their smile.
Dental veneers are known for making most issues concerning unattractive teeth better, including worn enamel, wear and tear, genetics, and uneven teeth. As we age the protective layer that covers our teeth, enamel, gets worn down, dulls, and becomes discolored. This can be attributed to our diet and the food and drinks that stain our teeth. Additionally the everyday wear and tear we place on our teeth gives them a much less attractive appearance, all of which can most likely be improved with teeth veneers.
Our ceramists use high quality, stain-resistant porcelain designed veneers for esthetics and longevity. The veneers will hide the flaws of your teeth with beautifully sculpted porcelain shells that mimic natural tooth enamel. Porcelain dental veneers are a permanent dental enhancement and require a small amount of enamel removal from the tooth surface, just enough to nearly equal the thickness of the veneers to be bonded to the tooth.
Minimal-prep veneers are essentially the same as traditional veneers however they require less manipulation of tooth structure and may be a good choice if you want the option to return to your original smile in the future. Often patients don't require anesthesia during placement because there is no drilling of tooth structure. These types of veneers aren't right for every smile; Dr. Winters will let you know if you are a candidate for minimal-prep veneers.
Veneers typically take three visits to our office to place, the first for the initial consultation and two to make and install the veneers. One or more teeth can simultaneously undergo the application process so that the patient is in the dental chair for as little time as possible.
