Do you have a tooth that is perhaps chipped, misshapen, discolored, or stained? Dental veneers are a great option to help cover that tooth and give you a bigger and brighter smile! Christopher L. Louie, DDS, Inc. strives to provide your best smile and this can be done with simple placement of a veneer.

Veneers are thin, pieces of porcelain placed on top of the natural tooth to give it a natural look. This also give you a solid tooth providing resistance and strength to protect the tooth. Your dentist will also customize your veneer to match the color of your teeth and the best shape that looks good with your natural smile.

To have a veneer placed, you must first go into your dentist for a consultation and have the veneer made according to you and your dentist’s specifications. If made in a laboratory, a temporary veneer may be placed. A very small amount of tooth enamel is first removed, the tooth and veneer cleaned thoroughly and drying all the way. An adhesive is then placed on the prepared tooth and the veneer is placed on top.

A special light cures the surfaces for about a minute to attach the veneer completely. Excess material is removed and a final polish gives way to a brand-new veneer! A follow-up appointment is scheduled to ensure the veneer is comfortable.
