What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are shells made of resin composite or porcelain materials that are bonded to the front of the teeth, improving the color, size, and shape. To make room for a veneer in your smile, Dr. Gregory G. Oman removes a small amount of tooth enamel. An impression of your tooth is made so that a veneer can be custom made. When the veneer is ready, our dentist will check the fit and color before bonding it to your tooth. If necessary, adjustments are made to achieve an ideal fit. After your tooth has been cleaned, polished, and etched, a cement and curing light are used to bond the veneer to your tooth.

Are dental veneers right for me?

Before deciding to place veneers, our dentist will have a consultation with you. Your smile goals will be discussed and our dentist will examine your smile. Dr. Gregory G. Oman may recommend dental veneers in Bountiful, Utah, to correct a variety of cosmetic dental flaws. Stained teeth can have their appearance improved by veneers, and worn down, chipped, or broken teeth can have their size and shape improved by having veneers applied as well. Even slightly crooked or uneven teeth can be corrected by using veneers. Also, small gaps between teeth can be closed with the use of veneers.
