More about Veneers in Columbia

Veneers are made of porcelain and can withstand normal wear and tear and typically last a long time because they are bonded directly to the surface of your teeth. Before you get your veneers, an impression of your teeth is made by your dentist. That impression is used to custom design your veneers while you’re sitting in the chair. This advanced dental technology allows him to make beautiful and successful restorations that provide the fit, form and function that you need quickly.

To apply your veneers, a part of your tooth enamel is removed in a thin layer to allow for the thickness of the new veneers. The veneers are bonded with a cement material and a curing light is used to harden that material. Veneers help improve one’s smile and can help change the color, shape or length of the teeth. Veneers have improved the appearance of countless patient's smiles in just one dental visit. Talk about convenience!

Ultimately, Dr. Garlitz can offer successful dental restorations that improve your smile with ease whether veneers, same day crowns or onlays. After a comprehensive dental exam, he can determine which procedures you will benefit from the most. To schedule this appointment at Garlitz Dentistry in Columbia, SC, today, call 803-736-8606.
