Dental veneers are versatile tooth restoration, designed just for you and made from high-grade ceramic that resembles a thin porcelain chip and covers a tooth’s surface. The most common use for a dental veneer is to conceal or correct certain visual issues that you don’t like about your tooth. The pros of dental veneers start with appearance but go further.
The following are among the problems your Eagan dentist may recommend a veneer to correct:
- Chipped teeth
- Minor cracks in teeth
- Irregularly tooth shapes
- Tooth discoloration unresponsive to professional teeth whitening
- Gaps between teeth
- Mildly crooked teeth
- Relieving tooth sensitivity due to recession
While these problems contribute to a less-than-attractive smile, your dental veneer can also protect worn enamel that might otherwise allow the formation of tooth cavities. Veneers may also lessen tooth sensitivity by insulating your tooth from hot and cold foods and drinks that might cause you to wince.
How Easy Is It to Get Dental Veneers?
At Woodpark Dental, we can provide a new dental veneer, produced in our office using CEREC technology, in a single appointment. Most dentists who rely on outside dental labs to create their veneers may require you to wait several weeks between two appointments to get a veneer.
Using the CEREC process, Dr. Le can design and create your dental veneer using advanced software and a leading-edge fabrication machine that makes precision restorations for your teeth while you wait. In addition to dental veneers, we can create dental crowns, inlays, and onlays to restore numerous tooth problems in one place.
