How Much Work Does It Take To Place Veneers On Teeth?

How difficult is it to make space on a patient’s teeth for their porcelain veneers? How drastic will the changes to your natural teeth be to accommodate the placement of these cosmetic restorations? People who worry about these matters can sometimes talk themselves out of cosmetic dental work before they actually look into what their experience might be like. At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, you can find that the placement of porcelain veneers can be a surprisingly conservative process. With minimal changes to your tooth structure, we can use these restorations to make significant changes to your appearance!

Cosmetic Dental Work Can Produce Real Results With Conservative Procedures

Cosmetic dental work can produce exciting changes to your smile, but the procedures involved in making those changes can be surprisingly conservative. When it comes to placing veneers, the removal of a small amount of your tooth structure can be enough to make space for restorations that make your smile brighter, more uniform, and generally more attractive. We can also provide procedures like tooth bonding and teeth whitening, which can be completed without placing any restorations on teeth.

Arranging The Placement Of Your Personalized Veneers

Veneers are custom-made to fit over the fronts of teeth. The first step in the process of improving your smile will see your dentist take careful measurements of teeth that are being restored. During the visit where this occurs, you can also have modest work done to make space on the fronts of teeth to hold veneers. What can surprise you is just how slender these restorations really are, and how little preliminary work is needed to make space for them. Once they are ready, you can come in for a follow-up appointment where they are bonded to your enamel for lasting improvements.

Talk To Your Dentist About All Of Your Options For Cosmetic Treatment

With porcelain veneers it is possible to make teeth look brighter, healthier, and better aligned. They can be effective as a response to minor damages as well as problems that occurred naturally. While they can be effective in many situations, they may not be the right treatment option for you. If you prefer, we can discuss cosmetic work in the form of tooth bonding and contouring. This approach will see your dentist carefully reshape or resize teeth through contouring work, in addition to applying composite resin material to restore them if they are affected by damage, discoloration, or problems with spacing.
