If you are suffering from dental health problems, veneers might be an ideal solution for you. At Dr. Xixi Wu we offer veneers to people looking to fix a wide range of teeth problems, including the cosmetic ones. These thin shells are made in the shape and color of your natural teeth. They are used to cover the front surface of the teeth, where they help to improve the appearance.
Do You Need Veneers?
Veneers can be an ideal solution if any of the following dental health problems are troubling you:
|Teeth discoloration - over time, your teeth can be stained, changing from their natural attractive white color to an unsightly yellow or brown color. When this happens, veneers are one of the solutions you can use to restore the natural appearance of your teeth.
|Gapped teeth - gapped teeth are a common dental problem, which can affect the way your smile looks. Luckily, veneers can help to remedy the situation by reducing the spaces between the teeth, which combined with their attractive color, helps to give you an amazing smile.
|Cracked, chipped, or fractured teeth - damaged teeth either due to dental trauma or wear and tear can not only affect your teeth functioning, but they also lead to a crooked smile. Veneers help to cover these forms of damage, thus restoring your natural smile.
The Dental Veneers Procedure
The process of getting veneers occurs in two stages, with the first one being during the initial appointment, where we evaluate your dental health condition. This allows us to identify the damaged teeth, and at the same time, determine if veneers are right for you.
If you are an ideal candidate for veneers, we then proceed to prepare your teeth for the veneer installment. The preparation involves taking a layer of the enamel off, thus ensuring that the affected teeth will retain their size after installing veneers. The teeth will also be cleaned and polished to create an even size, which will allow easier installation of veneers. After this, we will take an impression of the affected teeth, which we will use to custom-fabricate the veneers to be installed. Temporary veneers will then be installed, allowing you to enjoy some oral functionality as you wait for the permanent ones to be installed.
The second stage of the procedure involves removing the temporary veneers and installing the custom-created permanent ones. An adhesive is used to bond the veneers to the surface of your teeth, thus creating a strong and permanent bond. Light activation is used during this process to ensure that the adhesive hardens much faster.

Disadvantages of Veneers
|Veneers do not treat tooth damage - they only cover it. Therefore, if you have an existing problem, there is a risk that it will continue, leading to the loss of the tooth
|Veneers can only be used on teeth that have sufficient enamel. Therefore, people with badly eroded enamel might not be ideal candidates
