Dental Veneers

 Dental Veneers For Chipped Or Broken Teeth in Waterville, Maine | Cosmetic Dentist Near Me | Waterville Maine Dentist

 

Made from either porcelain or a resin composite material, thin-shelled dental veneers are used to repair chipped, broken, and under-sized teeth. The dental veneer is permanently bonded into place. It’s thin in places and thicker in others, the latter wherever the tooth needs more structural support.

First, your Waterville Family Dentistry dentist will remove only the tooth enamel that’s necessary, then makes an impression of the tooth from which the veneer will be made.

Once ready, the veneer will be placed on the tooth by first etching the surface, then using liquid to make it more rough. Next, the dentist uses a very specialized cement to the tooth and the veneer, and a special light is used to harden the cement.

While some patients get only one veneer, others get multiples to create a straight line of teeth. Whatever is the case for you, dental veneers will greatly contribute to your overall dental health and that sweet smile of yours.

 

 

Dental Veneers Vs. Tooth Implants Or Crowns

What’s the difference between dental veneers and other cosmetic dentistry procedures like tooth implants or crowns?

Dental veneers only cover the front of the tooth while implants stand in for the whole tooth. Crowns encase the tooth, which now serves as a platform for the crown. Meanwhile, dental veneers, like we said, only covers the front of the tooth–the part that everyone can see when you smile, which we hope you do a lot!

Benefits Of Dental Veneers

Considering their cost and time spent receiving treatment, dental veneers are a definite value when it comes to making your smile just the way you want it.

I am 53, and I have experienced many dentists in my lifetime. I have hated all of my experiences, so this review is a BIG DEAL because I had to go to Dr. Choe to get 3 fillings done, and he fixed the problem very expediently and with empathy to my nervousness, and I left feeling extremely happy with his results! Dr. Choe is the best dentist I have ever had to see, and I am forlorn that it took so long in my life to actually have a pleasant experience.
