Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They can whiten stained or discolored teeth, close gaps between teeth, “correct” a crooked smile without the need for braces, repair chips and imperfections, and create a more attractive or youthful looking smile.
To prepare a tooth for a veneer, your dentist will remove about 1/2 millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface, which is an amount nearly equal to the thickness of the veneer to be added to the tooth surface. Before trimming off the enamel, we will decide with you if there’s the need for a local anesthetic to numb the area. We then take molds (impressions) of the mouth. We then place temporary veneers for the patient to wear while the permanent veneers are being made. This procedure usually takes between 1.5 and 2 hours.
Next, the laboratory carefully crafts the porcelain into veneers. In about 2 weeks, the veneers are ready for us to fasten to the fronts of the teeth.
Before & After
Componeers – A Hollywood Smile in One Visit
Do you long for the perfect smile every time you look in the mirror? Is there an important event approaching in your life or are you constantly interacting with the public and desire the confidence associated with a perfect smile? If so, Componeers might be the right choice for you. This simple, minimally invasive procedure aesthetically restores your teeth and is proven to be an excellent option that yields immediate results for most patients. More often than not, patients walk away after a single session with the smile they have always dreamed of. Who is a candidate for Componeers? We recommend this procedure for a number of dental problems, including brightening teeth that have yellowed over time, or more serious ailments like a tooth fracture or abrasion of anterior teeth. Over the years, natural wear and tear can take its toll on your enamel, leaving unsightly pitting no matter how much you brush. A consultation will yield the best information for your individual dental health and aesthetic goals.
Componeers vs. Traditional Veneers
Componeer is an excellent alternative to traditional veneers. Traditional veneers require removal of as much as .5 millimeters of tooth enamel, and must be custom molded to your teeth. This takes a significant amount of time and multiple visits to the office. The composite materials of Componeer give you all the benefits of a lab made veneer, but are extremely thin, allowing us to conserve far more of your hard tooth matter. Because of the conservation of tooth enamel, this often times reduces patient stress. Componeers are resilient, absorb stress, and are easily repaired. They also will not degrade the integrity of other teeth within juxtaposition. Their natural shine and beauty emit vitality and deliver the results patients are seeking for. If you have desired a straight, bright smile, Componeers will prove to be a great solution.
Price Point Consideration
One of the most attractive considerations when it comes to the Componeer is that the cost can be half as much as porcelain veneers. This is because impressions, which mandate multiple visits, are not needed for Componeers, resulting in both time and cost savings. In addition, when used for restorative treatment, many insurance carriers will cover the cost of Componeers.
