What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin placed on the surfaces of your teeth. They are custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, making veneers an excellent option to create a smile that looks natural and beautiful.
The procedure of getting veneers will typically take two or three appointments.
The first appointment involves a consultation with Dr. Creager to determine whether veneers are the right option for you. He will examine your teeth and take X-rays and impressions of your teeth. This information is then sent to a dental laboratory, where your veneers are custom-made to Dr. Creager’s specifications.
The next step is preparing your teeth for veneers, which involves removing a small amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. After this, Dr. Creager will take an impression of your teeth, and you will receive temporary veneers while your permanent veneers are developed.
Finally, during the last appointment, Dr. Creager will remove your temporary veneers, and the permanent ones will be attached to your teeth with a special dental cement.
The Benefits of Veneers
- Improved Aesthetics: Dental veneers can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile by correcting a variety of cosmetic issues, including stains, chips, gaps, or misshapen teeth.
- Durability: Made from high-quality materials such as porcelain, dental veneers are designed to withstand daily wear and tear, offering a long-lasting solution.
- Stain Resistance: Unlike natural teeth, veneers resist staining from coffee, tea, wine, or tobacco, helping maintain a bright and beautiful smile.
- Minimal Invasiveness: The process of getting veneers requires less removal of the tooth structure compared to other cosmetic procedures such as crowns.
- Customization: Veneers can be tailored to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural look.
- Quick Transformation: The process of getting veneers is relatively fast, often requiring only two or three visits to our dental office.
- Boosted Confidence: With the improved appearance of your smile, you may find your self-esteem and confidence significantly increased.
- Oral Hygiene: We strongly recommend our patients, with or without dental veneers, take care of their smiles with proper oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice daily, floss daily, and use mouthwash once daily. With good care of your smile, you can ensure your smile stays healthy, and your veneers stay in tip-top shape.
- Specific Diet: It is also essential to avoid chewing hard foods or using your teeth to open packages, as this can damage your veneers.
- Dental Visits: Regular dental check-ups are necessary to keep your veneers looking their best. Ensuring you get bi-annual dental check-ups will also help prevent any oral problems.
