Veneers are a cosmetic dental solution that has greatly increased in popularity over the past 10 years. They can completely transform veneersyour smile no matter your cosmetic issue—even if other treatments haven’t worked. You will be amazed by the results your dentist can achieve with veneers in just a few simple appointments at McLean Dental Care.

What Exactly Are Veneers?
Veneers are a way of restoring the outer surfaces of the teeth so that they look smoother, whiter and are ideally shaped. They are small wafer-like coverings that are custom-designed and placed over individual teeth. When they are secured in place, they can be shaped and contoured as needed to give you a natural smile. The goal is to make the teeth look similar in shape, color and size. Veneers also cover up small unwanted gaps in the teeth.

A New Smile with Veneers
It doesn’t matter how damaged, worn or discolored your teeth appear on the outside—as long as they are healthy and firmly rooted, veneers can give you a brand new smile. Patients who have intrinsic discoloration that can’t be fixed with whitening gels (commonly caused by certain medications) often benefit from veneers. Patients who have teeth that are too small or that protrude can also achieve a more attractive smile with veneers designed by a McLean cosmetic dentist.

The Process of Getting Veneers
You may be surprised at how quickly you can get a new smile with veneers. After you and your dentist agree to a treatment plan, the next step is for your dentist to prep the surfaces of the teeth. A small amount of enamel has to be removed to make room for the veneers. A mold is taken of each tooth so that the veneers can be formed to fit your teeth. At the final appointment, the veneers are securely bonded and shaped to create your new, improved smile.
