What Are Dental Veneers?
Simply put, veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are custom matched and colored to fit the natural look and shape of teeth. The shells are placed onto the front of teeth and held in place with a special dental cement. Together, the shells help to repair the appearance of the smile by providing an aesthetically appealing “cover” for the teeth, while also fixing minor structural issues like small chips and cracks. They’re a simple, convenient way to fix a variety of minor issues.
Benefits of Veneers
Veneers can be used to treat a number of problems, including cracked teeth, chipped teeth, discoloration, and also small gaps between the teeth. They make a great solution for minor issues, and they come with a number of distinct benefits as a dental treatment:
- Convenient: Veneers require only minor alterations to the teeth, making them a convenient fix for small aesthetic or functional problems.
- Fast: The procedure for placing dental veneers is remarkably simple, and most patients are finished in just one to two visits.
- Long-Lasting: With proper care, porcelain veneers can last anywhere from 10 to 30 years.
- Reliable: Veneers are made from either strong porcelain or a composite resin material, making them both strong as well as stain-resistant.
The Dental Veneers Procedure
During your first visit, we’ll take impressions – physical models of the front of your teeth. We’ll use this to construct your permanent veneers. Your Ocoee cosmetic dentists will begin by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the front of each tooth and place temporary veneers.
These will protect your teeth while we make your permanent veneers. After constructing your permanent veneers to perfectly fit your natural teeth, we’ll bring you back for your second appointment. Drs. Baaqee will remove the permanent veneers, then prep your teeth by cleaning and rinsing them thoroughly. Each veneer will be placed on the front of its respective tooth, cementing it in place with dental adhesive, and using a special light to cure the adhesive to bond the veneer to the tooth. With the veneers in place, Drs. Baaqee will add any final touches to shaping the veneers to give you the most beautiful smile possible.
Caring for Veneers
Caring for veneers is relatively simple, and in fact, it’s basically the same as caring for natural teeth. Simply brush twice a day and floss daily, as you would normally. While your veneers will likely need to be replaced at some point, with proper care, that may not be for decades – giving you a beautiful, healthy new smile for years to come.
