Veneers Fort Union Area
Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. The veneer is usually only applied to the part of the tooth that is visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect. The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding. The indirect technique usually involves two appointments since the veneers are fabricated at a dental laboratory.
At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions are taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In two to three weeks when the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporary covering is removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. Veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic and are very aesthetic. The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less of the tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally more comfortable. Crowns are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure left.
