Many people who come to our office have an interest in getting dental veneers. The veneers are designed to make the teeth look beautiful, straight and white instead of discolored, broken, damaged or crooked.
How Do They Work?
The veneers are made from a durable porcelain material. The dentist will make molds of the patient’s mouth before they are created to ensure that they will fit properly. After they are created, they are carefully placed directly on top of the teeth to instantly change their appearance.
Unlike the natural teeth, they will not become easily stained. You could still drink some of your favorite beverages, such as coffee or tea without worrying too much about dealing with any of the discoloration they tend to cause. Not only do they remain white and resist those unwanted stains, they are created to look completely natural so people will never know the difference between them and your natural teeth.
To make sure the veneers will fit properly in your mouth, we will do the impression and then create a model beforehand. After taking a look at the model, we will then create the finished piece using the liquefied porcelain.
How Come Our Veneers the Best?
There are thousands of people who choose to have this cosmetic dental procedure performed. Unfortunately, not all dentists use the highest quality of porcelain available. There are some dental professionals who may use cheaper products to cut corners and save a bit of money.
However, those cheaper veneers may easily become discolored. And, if they are composite veneers, they will not offer the durability that the porcelain options offer. In fact, they may cost the patient more in the long run because of the need to constantly have them repaired or replaced.
We believe that it is only right to use the best materials to create the dental veneers. We want our patients to absolutely love the outcome, so we take time crafting custom options that are just right for each individual. The exact size and color of the finished piece will vary based on what will look best for the patient and fit comfortably too.
Should I Get Them?
Dental veneers are the perfect choice for those who want to achieve a smile that looks a lot like the smile of their favorite celebrity. However, not everyone is the perfect candidate for this type of dental treatment. A good candidate would need to have healthy front teeth that are not decaying or severely damaged.
Some patients may need to get a full crown instead of this option, such as those who are suffering from tooth decay or already have a lot of fillings in their mouth.
What You Should Know Ahead of Time
If you decide that you do want to get this dental treatment, some pieces of your natural teeth may have to get removed. After this process occurs, you will not be able to change your mind and then decide to switch back to living with just your natural teeth.
After the finished product is created, you will be unable to whiten them any further. Because they are designed to match with all of your other teeth, consider going for a few whitening sessions beforehand if you want them to look as white as possible.
Lastly, it may not be the best idea to get veneers if you have trouble with grinding the teeth. If you continue grinding them with the veneers on, they could end up cracking or breaking while causing you some serious problems.
