What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are used for cosmetic purposes to make teeth look better. They consist of custom-made laminates that are made of composite-resin or porcelain. These laminates are placed only on the front of the teeth, where they are most visible. They can correct dental concerns such as the following:
- Chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
The first step in the process is to schedule a thorough exam and consultation. Our dentists will review your medical history and make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy. Veneers work best for those with good oral health. If veneers are recommended, the dentist will take mouth impressions so they can create your custom-made veneers. The dentist will also choose a shade that will improve your smile. The dental lab then gets to work to create your veneers. This could take a few days.
Once your veneers are ready, the dentist will check the fit. He or she will make any adjustments and bond them to your teeth. These thin laminates can be used on one or multiple teeth. Do keep in mind that your dentist will have to remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth so that the veneer can fit properly. You can now show off your new smile! It can take a few days to get used to having veneers. If they still feel uncomfortable, consult with your dentist. Sometimes the bite can be off and it will need to be adjusted.
Dental Veneers Maintenance
Veneers can last up to 10 years with proper care. They are not a permanent solution. Veneers should be cared for the same as regular teeth. Veneers are made of porcelain, which is fairly resistant to staining. This means you can eat and drink normally. Brush and floss daily to avoid plaque and tartar buildup, which can cause decay. Avoid biting into hard foods, as veneers can chip easily. See your dentist for routine exams and cleanings.
