Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped ceramic that are custom made and bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. The veneer materials we use are metal-free, bio-compatible, anti-abrasive and plaque resistant.
We are the only dentist office in Marion to offer CEREC, absolutely the fastest way to receive veneers – completed in one visit to save your time and money. CEREC is a state-of-the-art computer aided method of creating precisely-designed, color-matched and highly durable ceramic veneers right in our office.
Veneers are very durable and will last many years. As with any dental restoration, they may someday need replacement but with proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits they will give you a long lasting and beautiful smile. You will receive care instructions for veneers.
Reasons for veneers:
- Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Severely discolored or stained teeth
- Teeth that are too small or large
- Unwanted or uneven spaces
- Worn or chipped teeth
Four Simple Steps of Getting Veneers in One Day at Marion Dental Associates
- Digital Impression. After examining the tooth and determining the course of treatment, we will prepare your tooth for restoration. Your prepared tooth is coated with a safe, tasteless powder. Your dentist will then use the CEREC state-of-the-art digital 3D camera to create an optical impression you can watch right on our computer screen. This replaces the physical impressions needed in traditional procedures, and the long waits while a tray of impression goop hardens in your mouth.
- Computer Aided Design (CAD). Sophisticated CAD software allows us to design every detail of your restoration with precision. The software allows us to customize the shape of the veneer to exactly fit your specific clinical needs.
- Mill. While you wait comfortably, exact design specifications are sent to our on-site milling machine to create your restoration. About 10 minutes later, your all-ceramic, color-matched veneer is ready for placement.
- Placement. Your new restoration is then fitted, polished and bonded for permanence. Your tooth is restored back to its natural form, function and beauty.
