When a patient wishes to improve the color, shape, size, or length of their teeth, Dr. James E. Gaff may recommend dental veneers in Jacksonville, Florida. Veneers are shells that are custom-made to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or resin composite materials. Veneers are used to fix:
- Stained teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Gaps and spaces between teeth
To prepare your teeth for veneers, our dentist will remove a small amount of enamel. This allows room for the veneers in your smile. Our dentist will take impressions of your teeth so your dental veneers can be constructed. When your veneers are ready, our dentist will place them in your mouth to check their color and fit. Any necessary adjustments will be made. Your teeth will be cleaned, polished, and roughened to ensure a strong bonding process. Our dentist will use a special cement and a curing light to permanently bond the veneers in place. Any excess cement is removed and our dentist will check your bite, making adjustments as necessary.
