At Bachtell Dentistry, we are proud to offer veneers to our patients.
Veneers are a more conservative option than crowns. They are used to cover stains, chips, decay, and irregularities.
Veneers are basically a thin layer of porcelain that gets applied over your front teeth. Before you get veneers, we need to make a model of your mouth so your veneers fit perfectly and are the correct shape. We remove some enamel before we attach the veneers to your teeth to make room for the porcelain.
Veneers are meant to last a long time, however you need to pay attention to their maintenance. You will want to stay away from food and drinks that may stain them. They have also been known to crack or chip if you get cavities beneath them or bite into items that you should avoid. Prior to treatment we will discuss these items with you. Regular checkups afterwards are important.
If you are considering veneers, contact us today at (318) 701-8240 to schedule an appointment to discuss your options.
