Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to improve their color and shape. Porcelain veneers are more stain-resistant than those made of other materials.
If you’re reluctant to smile because you don’t like your teeth, you may be giving the world the wrong message about yourself. Smiling tells everyone that you are happy and confident. If you want to feel better about your smile, veneers can help fix numerous tooth defects, to give you the smile confidence you need. These defects include:
It usually takes three appointments from start to finish for veneers. Expect a consultation and treatment plan visit, a visit to prepare your teeth for veneers, and the last visit to apply the veneers.
During the preparation visit, your dentist buffs your teeth to remove a small amount of enamel to make room for the thin veneer covers. He then takes a mold or model of your teeth that a dental lab technician uses to create your veneers.
At the final visit, your dentist places the veneers on your teeth to check their fit and appearance. At this point, he can make last-minute adjustments to the shape and color of the veneers before he permanently attaches them to your teeth. After he applies them, no changes can be made. To adhere them your dentist uses a special cement and then a light beam to harden them to your teeth. Once the procedure is over, your teeth are polished, and you are free to smile brightly at everyone you see.
It may take a couple of weeks to get used to your new teeth. Brush and floss regularly, as you would with your natural teeth. You should schedule a follow-up appointment with Wright Dental a couple of weeks after your last veneers appointment.
