Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to the outer surface of your teeth. They enhance the appearance of your smile while covering minor imperfections.
Placing custom veneers requires technical skill and expertise. The providers at Jeffrey Busch, DDS, can work with you to create a custom set of veneers that fit perfectly.
Jeffrey Busch, DDS, uses veneers to cover minor oral imperfections, including:
You might also benefit from veneers if you have stained or discolored teeth that don’t respond to teeth whitening treatment.
At Jeffrey Busch, DDS, getting veneers takes two visits.
Before recommending veneers, your provider conducts an oral exam and takes X-rays to assess the health and alignment of your teeth. To qualify veneers, you can’t have any cavities, so if your provider finds any tooth decay, they need to take care of that first.
If you have healthy teeth and gums, your provider numbs your mouth with an anesthetic and prepares your teeth to receive the veneers. They carefully remove a thin layer of enamel from each tooth and then take impressions.
Your provider sends your impressions to a dental laboratory that designs and manufactures your custom veneers.
When the laboratory finishes your custom veneers, you return to Jeffrey Busch, DDS. Your provider bonds the veneers to the outside of your permanent teeth and explains how to care for them.
Veneers tend to last 12-15* years, but it’s possible to extend their use by practicing good oral hygiene. Jeffrey Busch, DDS, recommends:
If you play contact sports, consider a mouthguard. That’s because even though veneers are tough, they can chip and crack.
If you chip or damage a veneer, don’t panic. Call your provider at Jeffrey Busch, DDS, right away. In most cases, it’s possible to make repairs without extensive dental work.
