If you want to improve your smile, dental veneers are a simple option. Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth. They look like natural teeth. Our veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth and enhance the natural beauty of your smile. When the veneers are bonded to your teeth, you will have a radiant, flawless smile. Veneers are often effective for those who have:
- Crooked, misshapen, or oddly sized teeth
- Teeth that are stained and can’t be whitened by bleaching
- Large, unwanted gaps between the teeth
- Chipped or worn teeth
Placing Dental Veneers
Veneers can be placed over the course of just two visits to our Bountiful, UT dental practice. During the initial appointment, the dentist will prepare your teeth usually by removing a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of the teeth. Dr. Blaisdell makes an impression, or mold, of the prepared teeth. The appropriate shade for the veneers will be chosen by both you and the dentist during this appointment as well.
The impression is sent to our dental lab that custom-makes the veneers to fit your teeth. This will take 2 weeks. Temporary veneers will be placed to wear in the meantime.
At your next visit, Dr. Blaisdell will place the veneers on the teeth to check the fit and shape. After any adjustments, the teeth are cleaned and the veneers bonded to the tooth. Once the veneers are in place, you can walk away with a radiant, beautiful smile. Following the procedure, the dentist will give you specific instructions on how to care for your new veneers.
