What Are Veneers?
Veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry treatment, primarily used to treat smile issues like minor chipping, misshapen and uneven teeth, gaps between teeth, and discolored teeth. They are thin, tooth-shaped shells that fit over your existing teeth.
By covering up the front surfaces of your teeth, they provide a seamless, natural, and beautiful appearance. Veneers are highly versatile, and can be used to treat many different cosmetic dentistry issues simultaneously, which makes them a very popular treatment.
How Do Veneers Work? Explaining The Process?
To get veneers, you’ll need to start by scheduling an initial consultation with Dr. Ashy, where he’ll discuss whether or not they’re a good choice for you, and go over all of your options for restoring your smile.
After you’re approved, you’ll come back to Elite Dentistry to have your teeth prepared and to have your veneers fitted. Dr. Ashy will clean and numb your mouth, trim away a thin layer of enamel from the teeth that are getting veneers, and take impressions of the teeth. These will be sent to a dental lab where your porcelain veneers will be made. You’ll be sent home with a set of temporary resin veneers.
Once your permanent veneers are built and sent to our office in 2-3 weeks, you’ll come back for your last appointment with Dr. Ashy. He’ll remove your temporaries and check your permanent veneers to make sure they fit perfectly. Then, they will be bonded into place with dental cement. Dr. Ashy will buff and polish your new smile, then send you home.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Generally speaking, veneers last between 10-20 years with proper care. This makes them the longest-lasting cosmetic dentistry procedure, which is one of the main reasons that they’re so popular.
However, veneers will eventually wear out. Just like natural teeth, they’re exposed to a lot of wear and tear as you bite, eat, and chew. That’s why it’s important to see Dr. Ashy for six-month checkups. Not only will he keep an eye on your oral health, but he will also check your veneers to make sure they’re in great shape, which keeps your smile looking perfect.
How Do I Care For Veneers?
To keep your smile and veneers healthy, simply maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice each day, flossing once each day, and seeing Dr. Ashy for routine six-month checkups.
To keep your veneers in good shape, you should also chew hard foods with your rear teeth rather than your front teeth, avoid chewing non-food objects like pens and fingernails, and don’t use your teeth for purposes such as opening bags or ripping tape. This will help prevent the premature damage, cracking, or dislodging of your veneers.
