What Are Dental Veneers?
A veneer is a small porcelain appliance that is placed and bonded over a problem tooth. Teeth take a lot of wear and tear over the years, and it is very possible that they will crack or chip over time. It is also highly realistic that they will in time stain due to acidic food and beverages, like wine or coffee. A veneer can be the perfect solution to a problem like this. These pieces are created by a team of workers who take an impression of the problem tooth (taken by your dentist) and create a porcelain cover. This piece is sure to impress.
How Do Dental Veneers Work?
When you come in for a consultation, you will discuss your cosmetic goals with us. We will analyze the problem teeth and present you with options. If a veneer is indeed the best option for you, we will create a cast based on your teeth. This cast is sent to a dental lab where they will create a veneer based on the impression. It is sent back to us, and at that point, you will come back for your placement appointment. We will remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of your tooth. Then, we will bond the porcelain over the problem tooth. This new piece will close gaps, cover chips, and disguise discoloration from years of used.
Caring For Your Dental Veneers After Placement
After you get your shiny new smile, it is time to take good care of it. You should brush and floss often, as usual, making sure your veneers remain as clean as you would want natural teeth to be. When going in for cleaning with your hygienist, make sure that they know not to use abrasive polish. Avoid biting into hard foods with your veneers, and if you tend to grind your teeth or clench your jaw, invest in a night guard to keep them safe. Veneers also stain, so any food or drink that could affect natural teeth could also affect veneers.
