Veneers in Hamilton, Ohio

Have you ever been self-conscious because of your teeth? Maybe you thought they were too small or stained or damaged in some way. If you have, Veneers may be the perfect option for you. Here at Hamilton Riverside Dentistry, we are dedicated to giving you your best smile. We believe the residents of Hamilton, Ohio, deserve to feel confident in their smiles. So what exactly are veneers and how can they benefit you? 


What are Veneers? 

Veneers are made of small pieces of resin (a type of plastic) that act as a cover for the front of your teeth. They are cemented onto the front of your teeth to fill gaps, make your teeth look longer, and cover-up stained teeth. Veneers are a good option for those who may not be interested in other dental treatments. Veneers are made to look completely natural and act like your normal teeth. 


What is the Procedure for Veneers?

To begin the process of veneers, x-rays will be taken to ensure no other dental problems exist. Then, a mold of your mouth will be taken and used to make your custom veneers. After a couple of weeks, you will return to the dentist’s office to have the veneers installed. 


To place the veneers on your teeth, your teeth will first be thoroughly cleaned and polished to make sure no bacteria is trapped underneath. Your teeth will then be roughed to create a better surface for the veneer to cling onto. This includes some shaving down of your tooth enamel. The veneers are then cemented onto your teeth and sealed with ultraviolet light. 


The application process of veneers is essentially painless. If you know you are subject to sensitivity, ask your doctor about what anesthesia options are available. We want to give you the best service at maximum comfort. 


Veneers may feel weird at first, but they will quickly feel like your normal teeth again and you will be able to eat and drink as normal. Veneers will help you increase your confidence in your smile. If you feel you have unnaturally shaped teeth, crooked teeth, gaps in your teeth, discoloration, or just smaller teeth than you would like, veneers are a great option to consider.
