Our trusted dentists and team can help you improve the natural beauty of your smile quickly and easily with porcelain veneers. Here’s what you should know about how veneers could benefit you before scheduling a consultation.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are wafer-thin, tooth-colored “caps” used to cover the surface of damaged teeth to enhance their color, shape, or size. While some people may have a cosmetic veneer placed to improve the appearance of one cracked or chipped tooth, most people get between 6 to 8 put on their front teeth to achieve a more symmetrical, radiant aesthetic. Dental veneers can be fabricated from a variety of materials but are usually made from porcelain or resin. At Belle Forest Dental, we are proud to offer porcelain veneers to match the color of your surrounding teeth perfectly.
Veneers treat a variety of cosmetic dental concerns, such as:
- Chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Uneven or misshapen teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Worn-down teeth
The best candidates for dental veneers are people whose teeth and gums are otherwise good but would like to improve a cosmetic oral health concern.
Cosmetic Veneer Procedure
At Belle Forest Dental, you can expect your porcelain veneer process to take place over three appointments: your consultation, one to prep your teeth and take impressions, and then to have them placed in your mouth. Here’s how it works:
- The dentist will lightly roughen the surface of your teeth and reshape them to prepare them for the veneers before taking an impression with a mold.
- Next, your impressions will go to a laboratory to make your customized veneers. While you wait, the dentist may give you temporary veneers to wear in the meantime.
- Finally, the dentist will compare the porcelain veneers’ shape, size, and color to your natural teeth before bonding them to the tooth’s surface.
How to Care for Dental Veneers
Taking the time to care for your porcelain veneers properly will ensure that they stay looking their best for years to come. Keep these tips in mind:
- Brush and floss your teeth thoroughly every day
- Don’t bite down on hard foods and items, such as ice
- Avoid grinding your teeth and clenching your jaws
- Limit your consumption of stain-causing foods and drinks
