Do you want to transform your smile? One of the most popular and effective ways to do so is with veneers. Veneers are durable, yet extremely thin ceramic shells which are custom-made to permanently cover the front surface of teeth, changing their shape, size, length, position and/or colour.
Veneers can be used to fix a number of cosmetic dentistry concerns including spaces between teeth (called diastemas), broken or chipped teeth, crooked or misaligned teeth (which might otherwise require orthodontics) and/or permanently stained or discoloured teeth that cannot be whitened. Veneers instantly change the look of your smile while still looking natural because they are colour matched to your existing teeth. Other benefits of veneers? The process of transforming your smile is fast – the entire process can be completed in only a few visits to the dentist (unlike orthodontics) and is somewhat conservative, requiring less tooth reduction from the surface of existing teeth than other cosmetic procedures such as crowns.
In general, at the first appointment, you will meet with Dr. Lewinger to discuss how you want to make-over your smile and the outcome that you want to achieve. At this appointment, digital diagnostic images will be taken as well as various records and dental impressions, all of which will be used to create a wax model of your new smile for you to view and approve in consultation with Dr. Lewinger. At the second appointment, your teeth will be prepared for the dental veneers and temporary veneers, custom-made by Dr. Lewinger, will be placed on your teeth. The temporary veneers will simulate your new smile so you have a chance to see what it will look like before the lab creates the permanent veneers for you. As an additional benefit, you will leave the office looking even better than when you arrived! At the next appointment, the temporary veneers will be removed and the permanent veneers will be affixed to your teeth for a beautiful, natural looking smile.
