Dental Veneers in Lewiston Maine
Does your smile have gaps, or do you have uneven, discolored, or crooked teeth? Dental veneers can help. Veneers are designed to give teeth uniform, even appearances. At our office in Lewiston, we provide dental veneers designed to treat discolored, chipped, or mishapen teeth.
What Do Dental Veneers Do?
Dental veneers cover the teeth and help make all of the teeth look the same. If you have irregular teeth, dental veneers might help. Veneers are made of a composite resin material or of porcelain so they look and feel just like normal teeth. Veneers can help patients with the following dental issues:
- Gaps between teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Different size teeth
Different Types of Dental Veneers
Porcelain Veneers are known for being long-lasting, strong, and stain resistant. In order to make porcelain veneers for your teeth, your dentist will first remove some enamel from your tooth (the outermost layer of your tooth). An impression of your tooth is taken, and a custom-made veneer is made. While you wait for the custom veneer, a temporary veneer is placed on your tooth. Once the custom veneer is crafted, you will return to the dentist to have your temporary veneer replaced.
In contrast, resin veneers are less expensive and require a single visit. Veneers are made from similar materials to what dentists use to fill teeth. They are not as durable as porcelain, but they are easy to repair. A veneer is placed on the tooth, reshaped, and color-matched all during a single appointment.
