Dental Veneers

A beautiful smile is one of the most attractive traits anyone can have. But what if you’re not happy with the size, shape, or color of your teeth? Fortunately, through technological advancements, dental veneers can give you the perfect smile you’ve always wanted! Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic option that can improve the appearance of your teeth and are offered here at Parleys Creek Dental in Salt Lake City, Utah. If you want to improve your smile’s overall appearance, look no further than Parleys Creek Dental.

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain and placed on your tooth’s front surface. They are a cosmetic solution to fix chipped, discolored, misaligned, or crooked teeth. Veneers typically last 10 to 15 years and are highly durable, resisting stains and wear and tear. Dr. Clinton Sorensen offers porcelain dental veneers at our dental office in Salt Lake City. Porcelain is known for its durability, translucency, and natural look. Porcelain veneers can also last longer than other veneers, like composite resin veneers.

Who Can Get Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are an excellent cosmetic fix for those with the following:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Gaps
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crooked teeth

Dental veneers may be right for you if your smile has any of these cosmetic issues. However, it is essential to note that your oral health should be overall good.

The Procedure for Getting Veneers

Getting dental veneers takes a few visits to the dentist.

Consultation with Dr. Sorensen
The first step is to consult Dr. Clinton Sorensen and discuss your aesthetic goal.
Prepping Your Smile
Once it is confirmed that you qualify for dental veneers, Dr. Sorensen will prepare your teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel from the front surface of your tooth. He will then take a mold of your teeth to make custom veneers that fit perfectly. While waiting for the permanent veneers to be created, Dr. Sorensen will give you temporary veneers to protect your teeth.
Your New Smile
Finally, our fantastic dentist will use a special adhesive to bond the permanent veneers onto your teeth.

After Care for Dental Veneers

Taking care of your dental veneers is the same as if you were caring for your natural smile. When caring for your dental veneers, be sure to brush your teeth daily, floss, and use mouthwash. Be sure also to visit Dr. Sorensen for regular check-ups to help ensure your dental veneers and overall smile are healthy. We also strongly encourage our patients not to chew or bite down on hard objects, as this can damage your dental veneers.

Benefits of Veneers

Veneers have several benefits, especially as they are a highly popular cosmetic dental fix. Advantages of veneers include:

Dental veneers can give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile that boosts your self-confidence.

They can also fix dental problems, such as gaps, misshapen or crooked teeth, and discoloration.

Porcelain veneers are not only natural looking and match your natural teeth, but they are also stain-resistant, helping you maintain a bright, white smile for years.

Another significant advantage of veneers is that they require minimal tooth alteration compared to other dental treatments.

Risks and Complications

Dental veneers have few risks or complications, but they do exist. One of the most common issues is tooth sensitivity, especially to hot or cold drinks or food. You may also experience mild discomfort if your teeth received more alterations than usual for the veneers. Additionally, veneers can chip, break, or come loose over time.
