Are You An Ideal Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a suitable option for individuals who have specific cosmetic concerns related to their teeth and want a natural smile. You are a prime candidate for this procedure if you have:
Stained or Discolored Teeth
Veneers can cover stains that don't respond well to teeth whitening treatments thus providing a consistently white and bright appearance.
Chipped or Cracked Teeth
Veneers can hide minor chips and cracks, restoring the natural appearance of teeth.
Gaps or Spaces
Veneers can close small gaps or spaces between teeth, providing a uniform and balanced smile.
Creating and Installing Porcelain Veneers - What to Expect During the Procedure
Porcelain veneers are renowned for their versatility, addressing a wide range of cosmetic imperfections like chips, cracks, stains, and smile gaps.
Step 1 - The Consultation Visit
Before embarking on any cosmetic dentistry journey, your initial step is scheduling a consultation visit. This crucial appointment sets the stage for your transformation and helps the dentist understand your unique cosmetic dentistry goals.
During your first visit, our dentist will carefully assess your teeth and gums to determine your eligibility for veneers. If you're a suitable candidate, your veneers will be made. The dentist will remove a small amount of enamel to create the ideal surface for veneer placement and take impressions of your teeth. These impressions serve as the foundation for your customized veneers.
Step 2- Wait for Your Porcelain Veneers
Crafting your veneers at a dental lab takes a few weeks. In the interim, our dentist may place temporary veneers if needed. Once your veneers are ready, the lab will promptly deliver them to our office.
Step 3 - Veneer Placement
Once your porcelain veneers are ready, the dentist will let you know. Before placing them, we will meticulously check the shape, color, and fit of your veneers, ensuring they align seamlessly with your teeth. To secure them in place, a specialized dental cement is used for a strong, enduring bond. Finally, your bite is assessed, and any necessary adjustments are made to ensure the perfect fit.
If you desire alterations to your veneers, such as shape or color adjustments, don't hesitate to communicate your preferences. Our dentist collaborates closely with the dental laboratory to ensure final results are satisfactory.
One of the remarkable aspects of veneer placement is that it has no downtime. You can resume your regular activities immediately after the procedure, including eating and drinking once the anesthesia has worn off.
