Fielding Common Questions Concerning Porcelain Veneers
Posted November 8, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
Porcelain veneers can help you make big changes to your smile, but if you are unfamiliar with this cosmetic dental procedure, you may have questions. The prospect of fixing cosmetic flaws, and showing off a beautiful smile, is an exciting one. That being said, you may be unsure if you qualify, or how long it will take to see results. If you are ready to learn more about veneers, but are not quite ready to commit to them, schedule a time for a consultation with your dentist. You can go over any questions or concerns that you have, and see how the procedure can transform your appearance.
It will take two appointments to have your veneers prepared. This is because your cosmetic restoration is custom-made by a ceramist – this process can begin after your dentist takes all necessary measurements during an initial appointment. Once your veneers are complete, and in your dentist’s possession, you will return to have them placed.
Veneers offer coverage of your teeth that can hide a number of superficial problems. You can cover up discoloration, spacing issues, and wear and tear on teeth. Because they can make so many changes, veneers can often be seen as an effective smile transformation.
Your oral care responsibilities will not see any significant change – in other words, veneers will not be a burden on your daily habits. You should continue to brush and floss like always, though it may be better to brush with a non-abrasive toothpaste. Veneers are made from stain-resistant porcelain, but they are not completely stain-proof, so limiting your intake of dark liquids can be important.
