Veneers

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin ceramic shells that Dr. Singh bonds to the front of your teeth. Veneers are used to change the size, shade, shape, and alignment of your teeth to improve appearance. They are considered a conservative method of cosmetic dentistry that can have a dramatic effect on your smile.

What conditions can veneers fix?

Veneers fix a number of conditions, including:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Misaligned or irregularly-shaped teeth
  • Gaps in between teeth

How are veneers placed?

Veneers may require a few visits to Danville Family Dentist for placement. After your initial consultation with Dr. Singh, where it’s determined that veneers are your best option, you’ll have two additional appointments for placement.

During the first visit, Dr. Singh removes a thin layer of enamel from your teeth, to make room for the veneer, and a mold is made. The mold is used to create specially designed veneers that fit your teeth perfectly.

During the second visit, Dr. Singh cements the custom-made veneers to the face of your teeth using a special dental glue and curing light, trimming the veneer as needed to create a perfect fit.

Veneers are stain-resistant, strong, and durable and can keep your smile bright for 10 years or longer.

What are crowns?

Crowns are prosthetic tooth caps that replace your entire tooth, instead of just covering the front of it. They’re used to strengthen broken and cracked teeth. Crowns protect severely decayed teeth following drilling or a root canal.

Crown placement is considered a more invasive cosmetic procedure than veneer placement.

How are crowns placed?

After it's been determined that a crown is your best option, placement requires at least two visits to Danville Family Dentist.

During the first visit, Dr. Singh files down and shapes your tooth to support the crown and then makes a mold. You’re fitted with a temporary crown while your permanent crown is being made.

At the second visit, Dr. Singh examines the tooth, and if all is well, cements the crown permanently into place.

Like veneers, crowns are durable and last many years.
