Questions You Might Have About Porcelain Veneers
Posted April 21, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
Are you looking at your smile lately and wishing you could make improvements to how it looks? The right cosmetic dental treatment can help you feel more secure about your smile. One popular means of making notable cosmetic changes is having porcelain veneers placed on teeth. You can use veneers to cover up teeth that are misshapen, dulled by wear and tear, or even poorly sized. They also help against discoloration. However, you should understand that porcelain veneers are effectively permanent, as they are bonded to your teeth, and you will not be able to remove them on your own.
Your dentist will first prepare your teeth to accept your veneers (this can involve removing some enamel from the front of your teeth). When the veneers are ready, you can come in to have the veneers placed and bonded to the front of teeth.
Veneers are able to make changes that address several potential problems. If teeth look unattractive because they are the wrong size, misshapen, damaged, or discolored, veneers can help.
Plan on two appointments to have porcelain veneers placed. The first visit involves the preparation of your teeth, and the taking of measurements needed to ensure they are a custom fit. When you return, your veneers will have arrived (they are constructed in a dental lab), and your dentist can place them.
Continue to brush and floss after you have veneers placed. While you might have a non-abrasive toothpaste recommended to you, your routine should stay consistent.
