Dental Veneers in Omaha, NE
Dental veneers serve as an effective option if you’re experiencing crowding problems, chipped teeth, worn down teeth or stained teeth. Veneers are thin shells that are placed on the front surface of the teeth to enhance their appearance. They will hide any noticeable flaws and help the teeth appear straight and even. The shade of veneers can be adjusted to your tooth color. Dental veneers are strong and durable and will last for many years before they require replacement or repairs.
At Healthy Smiles Family Dentistry, every set of dental veneers is custom-designed based on your needs—so you get the results you want. This means we will make two appointments with you, the first to take impressions of your teeth and the second to apply and adjust the veneers to your teeth.
How do dental veneers work?
Dental veneers are thin shells that are placed on the front surfaces of a person’s teeth. Depending on the type, the teeth may need to be prepped by removing a small amount of enamel to allow for correct spacing. The veneers can conceal any visible flaws, fix alignment problems, and alter the teeth’s thickness to improve spacing. Installing veneers is a simple process involving the preparation of the teeth and then bonding them with a strong dental adhesive.
What types of dental veneers are available?
The two main types of dental veneers are: porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Both are good options to help you improve your smile.
Composite veneers are manufactured in-office, using tooth-colored resin, and applied directly to the teeth. They are typically less expensive and quicker to apply than porcelain veneers, and they work well to cover up many aesthetic problems.
Porcelain veneers are custom-made, out of porcelain, to fit your teeth. These are typically made in a laboratory and sent to our office. We will apply them and ensure they fit your teeth as they should. Porcelain veneers generally last longer because of the stronger material, provide a more natural look, and can fix larger cosmetic issues such as very dark stained teeth or teeth positioned incorrectly.
