To learn more about them please contact Dr. Edward Logan and Dr. Emily Mack of O'Fallon Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in O’Fallon, MO.
Are Veneers the Solution for You?
Although they can help correct an imperfect smile dental veneers still require an otherwise healthy one. Healthy gums are very important not only for the treatment but so you may preserve your smile for a long time to come. before persuing veneers, your dentist can help make sure your teeth and gums are healthy.
Your dentist may prescribe a nightguard if you grind or clench your teeth, so be sure to let them know if this is an issue for you.
If you suffer from imperfections such as teeth that are chipped, worn, or misshapen, dental veneers can be of great help. They also prove very useful in treating slight gaps and crooked teeth, and in dealing with stains that will not respond to professional teeth whitening treatments. Such as those caused by injury, medication, or aging.
More severe conditions may be best served by other procedures, so it's always best to come into the office and discuss your expectations with your dentist.
How Do Dental Veneers Work?
If you are familiar with how dental crowns work, dental veneers are not much different. They are also caps that are bonded onto your teeth, but they are much thinner yet very durable.
Because of their size, much less enamel has to be removed in order to perform the treatment, it is much faster, and during it, you may require little to no anesthesia. Remember that because some enamel is removed veneers are still very much a permanent treatment.
