Your smile is a very important feature – it communicates a

they are ashamed of the state of their teeth. No matter how you have treated
your teeth in the past, cosmetic dentistry in Jacksonville Beach, FL
, offers solutions to get your smile flashing
are a particularly simple and beautiful way to get your teeth
looking healthy and bright once more.
Veneers are basically a very fine shell of porcelain that is
designed to fit on the front of a tooth. Each one is custom made in order to match the teeth of the patient. Applying a veneer to a tooth changes the tooth's
color when other procedures are ineffective. For example, teeth can become
damaged and stained due to root canal procedures, trauma or exposure to
tetracycline. When applied by a professional and properly cared for,
veneers can last for years.
It may take a few appointments to finish applying the
veneers. On the first visit, the teeth receiving the veneers will be buffed in
order to accommodate the thickness of the porcelain when it is applied. Your
dentist will then take a mold of your teeth for creating the veneers.
At the next visit, your dentist checks the size, fit
and color of each veneer. You can decide if you want the color adjusted at all
at this point. Once you are satisfied with the color, the veneers are cleaned
with a special cleaner and attached to the tooth using a special bond hardened
by a light beam.
