Making cosmetic changes to your smile doesn’t have to be difficult.

What are dental veneers?
Ever wonder how your favorite actor maintains such a stunning smile? Well, they may be doing so with the help of dental veneers. These custom-made, stain-resistant shells are applied to the front of one or more teeth to change the shape, color or length.
Are you dealing with any of these cosmetic issues?
- Discolorations and internal stains
- Chips and cracks
- Uneven teeth
- Worn teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Minor twists or overlaps in your teeth
- Slight crowding
- Oddly shaped teeth
If you said “yes” to one or more of these problems above, then dental veneers could certainly be the treatment option you’ve been waiting for.
How do dental veneers work?
Veneers provide a realistic option for covering and hiding imperfections while still offering a smile that’s realistic. How? These restorations are tailor-made based on impressions taken of your smile, so you know that when you turn to our Fargo dentists for veneers, you will get a natural-looking smile every time.
Before veneers are designed and bonded to your teeth, we need to prepare the teeth that are getting veneers. Another reason veneers are popular is that not a lot of preparation goes into getting them. In fact, only a small amount of enamel must be filed down from the teeth first in order to accommodate the added volume of having veneers.
From there, impressions of your mouth must be made. These impressions are necessary for crafting your veneers. Since it can take up to a week to get your veneers, we may also place temporary ones over your teeth to protect them while you wait.
The last step is to have your permanent veneers bonded to your teeth. This process is also completely painless. All we have to do is apply resin between the veneers and the front of your teeth and then direct a curing light over the tooth to harden the resin. It’s that simple!
