What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers

Dental veneers help renew your teeth and give you the smile you always wanted.

If you are looking to improve the brightness and pearly white appearance of your smile, ask your cosmetic dentistry about dental veneers. Dental veneers, also referred to as porcelain veneers, are thin ceramic covers which are bonded and fit tightly to your front teeth to imitate the look and feel of natural teeth. Oftentimes, people elect to undergo veneer procedures to replace damaged tooth enamel or brighten their smile and overall appearance.

Scheduling Your Appointment

It is important that you schedule an appointment with your cosmetic dentistry and ask your dentist about the long lasting benefits of veneers before you take the leap and get these ceramic molds placed on your front teeth. Most people favor veneers because they, oftentimes, help change a particular tooth’s color, size, and/or shape. They are perfect for those who have permanent stains on their front teeth and for those who have unwanted gaps or a chipped tooth. Most of the time, veneers have a long shelf life and can produce satisfying results when they are properly inserted by a cosmetic dentist.

Fitting Veneers

Prior to your fitting, it is critical that you are a good candidate for veneers. Since veneers are thin porcelain additions to the front of your teeth, it is important that you have a strong structure to your teeth and that they are void of any severe damage or deterioration from smoking or gum disease. It is important to remember that veneers are not replacements to fix all dental problems. Also, to be a candidate for veneers, you must not suffer from a severe overbite. While overbites can be repaired with other orthodontist procedures, veneers can help to fix misaligned teeth and smiles.

Your Dental Appointments

Generally speaking, getting fitted for dental veneers requires three separate appointments with your local cosmetic dentistry. The first visit involves a consultation with your cosmetic dentistry and the final two appointments are where you actually receive your veneers. It is recommended that during the first appointment you talk over the costs involved and see if your type of insurance will cover the procedure.

Once veneers are bonded to your teeth, it is important that you keep up with proper maintenance and continue to take care of your teeth. You must routinely brush your teeth and floss every single day and rinse with mouthwash occasionally. It may take some period of time and natural adjustment and diet restrictions to get used to your new teeth and if problems should arise, contact your local cosmetic dentistry as soon as possible.
