When a patient wants the color, shape, size, or length of their teeth improved, Dr. Kenneth Schweizer may recommend dental veneers in Sarasota, Florida. Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom made of tooth-colored materials. They are placed over the front surface of the teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. Our dentist may place dental veneers to repair:
- Discolored teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Slightly crooked or crowded teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps and spaces between teeth
If you choose dental veneers, our dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth. Impressions of the teeth are made so that your dental veneers can be constructed. When your dental veneers are complete, our dentist will temporarily place them in your mouth to check the fit and color. Any necessary adjustments are made. Your teeth will then be cleaned, polished, and roughened. The dental veneers are then permanently cemented in place. Our dentist will use a special light to help the cement to bond quickly. Any excess cement is then removed and your bite is checked. Any final adjustments are made as necessary.
