Do you feel insecure about your smile because your teeth are discolored, crooked, or poorly shaped? You are in good company. Dr. Brad Sievert uses natural-looking veneers for various reasons to help patients achieve the smile of their dreams. If you’re interested in this straightforward dental procedure, please book a life-changing appointment with Westlake Family Dentistry in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
Dental veneers are customized thin shells made of high-quality tooth-colored materials. They’re precisely designed to fit over the front surface of teeth to alter their appearance. Dental veneers conceal numerous esthetic imperfections, including cracks, chips, tooth discoloration, and unsightly gaps.
Dental veneers come in many sizes and shapes. Porcelain veneers use fingernail-sized porcelain coverings to change the appearance of your front-facing teeth. Direct (composite) veneers use composite resin to conceal mild cosmetic flaws to achieve your desired look.
Porcelain veneers involve at least two dental appointments. During the initial consultation, Dr. Sievert will understand your smile goals and examine your teeth and gums to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for veneers. Underlying conditions, such as gum disease or tooth decay, must be treated before the veneer treatment.
Once deemed eligible for veneers, your teeth will be prepared by shaving and roughening the enamel. Next, we take a mold of your teeth to be used by our master ceramists to create your customized veneers. Since veneers take several days to create, you’ll leave our office with temporary veneers to protect your smile.
Once the veneers are ready, you’ll book another appointment with our clinic. We’ll check your veneers’ fit, color, and appearance before bonding them to your teeth.
If you want to enhance your smile and boost your confidence, dental veneers can be an ideal solution. Whether porcelain or composite, dental veneers disguise dental imperfections for a one-of-a-kind smile.
