Many people who are looking to repair their teeth find veneers to be a great way to achieve their dream smile. Start with a consultation when our doctors can examine your mouth and determine if cosmetic dentistry with veneers is right for you.
Veneers help eliminate gaps and spaces in your smile, cover up misshapen teeth, fix cracked teeth, and improve stains. You will love your bright new smile!
Gaps and spaces - If you have unsightly gaps and spaces, porcelain veneers can be bonded on the teeth next to the gap(s), effectively increasing their width and filling the space.
Misshapen teeth - Porcelain veneers are an effective solution to cover up defects on the surface of the teeth from wear and tear due to clenching or grinding. Prolonged clenching and grinding can cause the front surface of the teeth to become irregular, rough, and susceptible to stains.
Chips and cracks - Veneers are also a great method to fix chipped, cracked, or malformed teeth that contribute to a less-than-ideal aesthetic.
Stains and discoloration - Upgrade the entire shade of your smile with durable veneers that are resistant to stains and discoloration.
Most people can improve their smile using porcelain veneers, but it is important to have your teeth examined for other problems that may need to be addressed first before veneer placement
Porcelain veneers are made by hand from thin shells of layered glass ceramic. Each veneer is customized by layering thin layers of ceramic, shaping to enhance the patient’s facial features and stained to mimic natural teeth. The veneer is bonded to your tooth and offers similar strength and resilience to tooth enamel.
Veneers are an incredibly versatile treatment option that can be used for restorative and cosmetic work, fixing your teeth and improving your smile in just a couple of appointments. They are often the best path to a beautiful smile.
Tooth preparation for veneer placement involves the removal of tooth structure (enamel) from the front surface of the tooth, which is an irreversible process. An impression of your teeth will be taken and used to produce a mold that will then be sent to a dental lab to create your permanent veneers. In the meantime, you will wear temporary veneers to avoid sensitivity.
In order to determine how many veneers one needs a consultation is necessary. Each case is unique and the number of veneers needed depends on the individual patient goals.
Compared to other dental treatments, recovery after getting your veneers is quite fast. After the veneers are permanently bonded and the anesthetic wears off, you should be able to eat and chew normally. If the surface of the veneers feels a little rough, it’s usually because the extra cement has escaped. This should wear down naturally in a few days of brushing and eating, but if not, contact your cosmetic dentist to smooth them out.
Conventional porcelain veneers often last 10 to 15 years with proper care, while no-prep
To maximize the lifespan of your veneers, you should:
• Avoid chewing on hard objects, such as ice, fingernails, or pens• Avoid using your teeth to open condiment packages and other packaging.• Cut up hard foods and chew them with your back teeth only.• Wear a mouthguard when playing sports.• Wear a splint or retainer if you have bruxism.
Although veneers are durable and known to last for many years, chipped or fractured porcelain veneers are irreparable. In case of any damage, schedule an appointment with your cosmetic dentist to plan how the veneer will be replaced to restore your smile.
