If you have questions about dental veneers, you’re not alone. These little shells can be a little confusing and even overwhelming if you don’t know much about them. So, to help you, our dentist, Dr. Bryce Hanson, is happy to provide the answers to commonly asked questions about dental veneers in Shelley, Idaho.

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are thin, natural-looking, porcelain dental shells that are made in a dental lab to fit perfectly over your teeth. Typically, the veneers are made of porcelain (which is a tooth-colored material) and they bond to the front surfaces of the teeth, changing the color, size, shape, and length.

What can dental veneers do for me?

Dental veneers can do many things for you. They can hide the imperfections of an unappealing chomper, give you the smile you have always dreamed of, provide natural-looking outcomes, and boost your self-confidence.

What is the process of placing dental veneers?

First, your dentist will numb your tooth with a local anesthetic. Then, he will slim the enamel of your tooth to create room for the product. Next, he will make a mold of your tooth and will send it to a dental lab where dental technicians will create your veneer. When the veneer is completed, the technicians will send it to our office and Dr. Bryce Hanson will successfully bond it to your tooth, giving you the results you desire.
