If your teeth are stained, chipped or uneven, you may be a candidate for dental veneers in Chesterfield. Dental veneers are a cosmetic procedure that enhance the look of your smile. We recommend dental veneers if you have stained teeth that do not respond to in-office teeth whitening procedures. This might be your situation if you have had certain medical treatments, exposure to certain types of medications or if you have a history of drinking coffee, tea or cola. You might also have stained teeth from smoking. If you have quit using tobacco, veneers would brighten your smile.
We also fit veneers on people who have a gummy smile. If you have a chipped tooth, a veneer fits over it like an artificial nail fits over your natural fingernail. The veneer evens out the appearance of a chipped or misshaped tooth. The cosmetic process creates a more symmetric and bright smile.
Dental veneers are custom-made for you in a dental lab using impressions that we take of your mouth. On your first visit with us, we take impressions of your mouth. On the second visit to our office, we do the prep work. The prep work involves preparing the surface of the tooth for the veneer. We permanently remove a little enamel. Doing this creates a slightly rough surface that allows the veneer to bond with your tooth. We then place the veneer onto the tooth. We can fit you with one, a few or many veneers. Veneers are considered to be a permanent cosmetic procedure because of the removal of some of your dental enamel.
