A gap-toothed smile is often perceived as an attractive smile, but gaps can also be an undesirable feature. If your teeth appear smaller than normal, or if gaps cause you embarrassment, you might want to consider cosmetic dental procedures that build back the missing tooth structure.
A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain that is bonded to the front of your teeth. They are custom-made for your mouth to contour to your smile and match the shape and size of your other teeth.
These advantages make porcelain veneers a great solution for many patients who feel self-conscious about their smile. By improving the appearance of their teeth with cosmetic dentistry treatments, many patients are able to enjoy greater social and professional success than they previously had when their smile was imperfect.
No, they are not. Your dentist will administer local anesthesia around and beneath the tooth being treated. This should not cause any pain, but if it does, you should notify the doctor right away. They can adjust the level of anesthesia as necessary to ensure maximum comfort throughout the procedure. Once the anesthetic wears off, you may experience some mild discomfort and/or sensitivity in the treatment area. This can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers as well as ice packs applied to the affected area immediately following the procedure.
