Are Veneers Right For You?

Are Veneers Right For You?

Posted January 4, 2012 by Wager-Evans Dental

Veneers are shell-like coverings that are permanently bonded to your natural tooth. Composed of either porcelain or resin, they resemble real teeth and are customized specifically for each patient by a trained dental technician.  Originally popular amongst the wealthy and famous, veneers have become increasingly available in recent years. Wager Evans Dental offers porcelain veneers and our professional team is here to consult with you on your decision.

How Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

  • Veneers can mask cracked and chipped teeth
  • They improve the look of uniformity and
    alignment among your teeth
  • Gaps become less recognizable
  • Your smile is permanently whitened
  • They are typically stronger and more resilient
    than crowns

Advantages of Veneers

In cosmetic dentistry, veneers are highly sought after for patients who want to permanently improve their smile.  Since veneers are bonded to your real teeth, gum tissue stands up well to the porcelain. Over time, your teeth become fixed to the veneers and the porcelain shells resist stains well. We will match your veneers to your natural tooth color or even go shades whiter, if you prefer. Creating and affixing veneers is often less invasive than other smile enhancing procedures.  Treat porcelain veneers as real teeth; continue with your regular brushing and flossing regimen. They provide long-term enhancement to your smile.

How Veneers Are Attached
To Your Teeth

Inform us of any specific issues you have with your current
smile, such as gaps between teeth or discoloration. After speaking with our team and undergoing a consultation, Drs. Wager and Evans will take precise molds of your teeth after gently trimming away a small portion of surface enamel. Each mold is sent to a state of-the-art dental lab where your customized veneers are made. Wager Evans
will then bond the veneers to your teeth with dental cement and adjust the shape and placement of each shell to improve your smile. Contact our office at (775) 800-4845 for more information and to schedule a consultation. We serve patients in Reno and the surrounding areas.
