Dr. James Lewis is a general dentist with over 15 years of experience serving the New Port Richey area. Veneers are a top-requested cosmetic service at his practice for patients who want a smile makeover. Learn how veneers can transform your smile from average Veneersto amazing in just a few appointments. 

Understanding Veneers
It’s definitely best to understand the dental service that you’re interested in before you have it done. Veneers are wafer-thin tooth coverings that can be shaped to perfectly fit into your smile. The veneer is commonly made of a very attractive, polished porcelain material that resembles the look of a tooth, so no one is the wiser. The veneer is supported by your existing tooth—your New Port Richey dentist must first do some work to the tooth to ensure that it will maintain its bond with the porcelain material.

How Veneers Transform Your Smile
Patients who are good candidates for veneers usually have some type of flaw that can’t be corrected with just orthodontics or a cleaning. For instance, as a person ages the teeth sometimes become discolored in deeper layers that can’t be affected with tooth whitening gel. Some patients have crooked or misshapen teeth that don’t fit in with the rest of the teeth. A veneer transforms the smile by providing a quick fix that covers these imperfections and makes the teeth look whiter, straighter and more even all at once.

Having Veneers Created
After modifying the existing tooth (or teeth), the dentist will take an impression of your smile and send it in to a lab for processing. A perfectly shaped veneer is created for each tooth in the treatment plan. After bonding them in place, the dentist may do some additional shaping and contouring before revealing your brand new “Hollywood” quality smile.
