Are veneers the answer for straight, white teeth?
Dental veneers in Coffs Harbour, NSW are thin shells that go over the fronts of your teeth to conceal tooth flaws.
These flaws include:
- Short teeth
- Worn teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
- Discoloured teeth
Today’s discerning patient wants a straight smile and whiter teeth without undergoing invasive procedures or years in braces. Veneers, once believed an option available only for film stars and models, may well be the answer to a whiter smile and straighter-looking teeth for many.
The veneers process begins with an exam by one of our Coffs Harbour dentists. This evaluation may include x-rays if no current films are on file. During this exam, you are encouraged to ask questions and share any relevant medical history with your dentist.
If your dentist determines that veneers are a good solution to your discoloured or slightly crooked teeth, the next step is tooth preparation. Generally, a small portion of enamel is removed to make way for your new veneer that will match your smile and hide your tooth flaws. A final polish will give your veneers a natural look.
