Talking veneers with Dr. Baruffi

February 3rd, 2010

There's no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, discolored, badly shaped, chipped, or crooked, says Dr. Baruffi. Today, a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature's mistake or the results of an injury and help you have a beautiful smile. Veneers are a highly popular solution among dental patients because of their life-like tooth appearance!

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain) designed to cover the front side of your teeth. To prepare for veneers, Dr. Baruffi and our team at Southcenter Dental will create a unique model of your teeth. This model is sent to the dental technician to create your veneers. Before placing your new veneer, your doctor will remove a small amount of your tooth to make room for the veneer. When placed, you'll be pleased to see that veneers look like your natural teeth and even resist staining.

For more information on veneers, or if you have any questions about your treatment with Dr. Baruffi, please feel free to give us a call.

Happy MLK Day, everyone! Dr. Baruffi would like to point you to an interesting article from respected physician Dr. Andrew Weil about the "5 Steps to a Healthy Mouth." What better way to keep yourself healthy than keeping your mouth healthy? Dr. Weil notes that using dental floss, washing your hands and massaging your gums with your fingertips, having your teeth and gums cleaned by Dr. Baruffi twice a year and using a goldenseal mouth rinse are all important ingredients to keeping your mouth healthy.
