What is it?
Veneers are one of the easiest and most effective ways to quickly improve the appearance of your smile. A veneer is a thin covering that is used to permanently whiten your teeth, cover chips, correct a tooth’s shape, or fix slightly crooked teeth.
What can I expect during my appointment?
Your new veneers will look aesthetic and natural. Prior to creating and placing your veneers, Dr. Merlino will review your treatment plan with you, ensuring that your veneers function properly and provide you with a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
No anesthesia is needed. Sometimes the doctor will use a handpiece to remove a thin layer of stain or tooth so the resulting teeth won’t appear to bulky. Then we will use air abrasion to clean and micro etch the tooth so the composite or porcelain will bond well. For porcelain veneers, we will take impressions, place temporary composite veneers and, in a week or two, we will bond on your new teeth!
