Dental Veneers

Close up 3D rendering of a thin porcelain veneer being applied to a toothLiving with crooked teeth, gaps between the teeth, or chipped teeth presents many problems. You may hide your smile or experience bite function problems such as difficulties in chewing food. Dental veneers are a possible solution to help you achieve the look you desire and protect your teeth while also restoring your bite function. If you have a chipped tooth, crooked teeth, or a gap between your teeth, you may be a candidate for veneers. Veneers are custom-made shells that serve to cover the teeth on the front surface. Our dental specialists at 253 Dental Care offer a variety of dental veneers for you to choose from. Talk to our dental professionals to find out if veneers can work for you.

Types of Veneers

Dentists recommend dental veneers if you want to change the appearance, length, or shape of your teeth. The veneers are fitted onto the tooth to cover it. Different kinds of veneers exist, often made of different materials. The common ones are porcelain veneers, but at our office, we also fit composite resin veneers. Porcelain veneers are tailor-made for you, and they are durable and versatile. Composite veneers are much cheaper compared to porcelain veneers. The process of getting a composite veneer is pretty short. You can visit our dental office and get your composite veneers the same day.

The Procedure for Fitting Veneers

When you first visit our dental office, our dental team will first examine you. The next thing we will do is to extract some enamel from the front and the sides of the teeth to create space for the veneers. An impression is then prepared to make a structure of the tooth. Together with our team, you will decide the right shade of your veneers that matches your natural teeth. The dentist will take the mold to the lab to make a tailor-made veneer that will fit you. The construction of the veneers can take a few weeks. Thus, our professionals will prepare temporary veneers to cover the space left while you wait to get your permanent veneers.

During the next appointment, our team will take out the temporary veneers and fit the permanent ones. Before fitting the permanent veneers, the dentist will clean your teeth to ensure the veneers are fitted on a clean surface free of plaque, bacteria, or other mouth debris.

Caring for Veneers

While veneers do not need special care, it is crucial that you ensure proper oral hygiene. You should floss daily and brush twice a day. When cleaning your mouth and teeth, rinse with antiseptic mouthwash to kill germs and bacteria. If you grind your teeth and clench your jaw, our dentist can offer you a night mouth guard to wear. The mouth guard will help prevent you from damaging the veneer as a result of teeth grinding. Since veneers can stain, minimize the intake of beverages and drinks like red wine, tea, and coffee. Also, avoid or quit smoking.

Teeth sensitivity is common after any veneer procedure. The sensitivity might last for three weeks. If the sensitivity is still felt several months after the procedure, it is advisable you visit our dental team for a checkup.

A good smile does not distract your life. To get a perfect one you can visit us at 253 Dental Care to know if you can receive veneers. Give us a call at (253) 765-0184 to book your appointment.
