Omaha Porcelain Veneers Dentist serving Bellevue and areas near Nebraska
A dental veneer is a thin shell of porcelain or plastic that’s bonded to a tooth to improve its color and shape. The dental veneer generally covers only the front and top of a tooth; it can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth, or to whiten stained or dark teeth.
It takes two or more appointments to restore teeth with porcelain veneers. During the first appointment, we shape and roughen the teeth. We then take impressions of your teeth to make models of your mouth. It’s on these models that we craft veneers to fit the prepared teeth.
At the second appointment, we clean and polish the prepared teeth. Then we use an adhesive to bond the veneers to the teeth and a high-intensity light to harden the adhesive. Once in place, veneers virtually become part of the teeth with an extremely strong bond. The final result: beautiful, natural-looking teeth that have the shape and color you’ve always desired.
