Hello! We are so glad you came to the Murray dental health blog. This is the place where we take the time to answer some of the questions cosmetic dentistry patients in the Salt Lake City area are curious about. Today we are discussing veneers. You may have heard the word veneer used in conjunction with cosmetic dentistry, and that is because they are a popular and effective cosmetic dentistry tool.
Veneers are covers for the front part of the teeth. They are usually used to correct tooth imperfections, such as chipping, staining, decay, or crooked teeth. Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.
The first step in the veneer process is to make a mold to work from. Your Sandy, Taylorsville, or Draper dentist will make the model of your teeth. After that, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers.
It is important to note that because a little of the enamel from the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed, this process is usually irreversible.
If you are in the Draper area and are looking for a dentist, give Salt Lake Dental Care a call. My name is Dr. Clint Blackwood and I have been serving Murray, Utah since 2005.
Please call 801-938-8855 and a member of our high-quality staff can answer any questions you have about veneers, teeth whitening, dental care, or smile makeovers.
