Dental Veneers in Gulfport, MS

Dental Veneers in Gulfport, MS

A veneer is a thin, tooth-colored shell placed over a tooth's front to improve its appearance. They are made of porcelain or resin composite materials and are used to correct cosmetic imperfections such as stained teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, and more.

At Emery L. Edwards DDS, veneers are custom-made for each patient and are bonded to the tooth surface using a special adhesive. They require minimal preparation before placement, so patients can usually return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. Veneers are an excellent solution for patients who want to make minor improvements to their smile without undergoing extensive dental treatments.

The Procedure for Dental Veneers

Veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment because they provide natural-looking results and are relatively quick to place. But before placing your veneers, our dentist will first examine your teeth to ensure they are healthy enough for the veneer procedure.  

The procedure for placing veneers is minimally invasive. Our dentist in Gulfport, MS, will first remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of the affected teeth to make room for the veneer. Then, they will take an impression of the prepared teeth and send it to the lab where your custom veneers will be created. While your veneers are being made, your dentist will place temporary veneers on your teeth. Once your permanent veneers are ready, they will be bonded to the front of your teeth using special cement. Depending upon the patient's needs, veneers can be custom-made right here in our dental office using cutting-edge Prime Scan and CEREC technology. 

Veneers are durable and can last for many years with proper care. They don't require any special maintenance beyond regular oral hygiene practices, such as brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist for routine checkups. 

The Benefits of Dental Veneers

Improved Appearance

Dental veneers can instantly improve the appearance of your smile by covering up any flaws you may have. They can also be used to close gaps between teeth, make your teeth look straighter, and even out the color of your teeth.

Stain Resistance

Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains from substances like coffee, tea, and tobacco. This means your new smile will likely stay bright and attractive for a long time.
