Why your child may need Veneer
Your child no longer needs to hide his or her smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth. With veneers, you can easily correct your child’s teeth’s imperfections to help him or her have a more confident, beautiful smile. Veneers are natural in appearance, and they are a perfect option for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain), and they are designed to cover the front side of your child’s teeth. To prepare for veneers, the doctor will create a unique model of your child’s teeth. This model is sent to the dental technician to create the veneers. Before placing the new veneer, the doctor may need to conservatively prepare the tooth to achieve the desired aesthetic result.
When placed, you’ll be pleased to see that veneers look like your child’s natural teeth. While veneers are stain resistant, the doctor may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, and other staining food and drinks to maintain the beauty of your child’s new smile.
