Dental veneers are thin, custom-crafted “shells” that are placed directly on the front surface of your teeth. They are used to improve the aesthetic appeal of your smile and can address a wide range of cosmetic issues.
People choose dental veneers to improve the following:
The first step involves a thorough dental exam. Dr. Hsu examines your teeth to determine if there are any areas of decay that he needs to address. If you're a good candidate for veneers, he helps you decide if the procedure is right for you.
Dental veneers are permanent, and there’s no way to restore your teeth to their natural condition once veneers are placed. That’s why making an informed decision is so important.
Dr. Hsu prepares your teeth for veneers by removing a tiny portion of your tooth tissue. That provides space for the veneers to sit correctly on the surface of your teeth.
Next, Dr. Hsu gathers information such as X-rays or dental impressions to send to the lab. That gives the lab technicians the measurements they need to craft your custom veneers. You may even receive a temporary device to wear until your next appointment.
Once your veneers arrive at John S.K. Hsu D.D.S. and Virginia J. Chin D.D.S., P.C., you return to have them placed. Dr. Hsu carefully checks the fit and makes small adjustments to ensure that your veneers are perfectly positioned before cementing them in place.
Dental veneers are an excellent option for many people, but patients should some possible disadvantages before making a decision.
The downsides of dental veneers include:
Veneers are not a good fit for people with moderate or severe dental decay. They are also not suited for men and women who habitually grind their teeth, as this excess pressure can lead to cracks or chips.
