What is a Dental Veneer?
If it is decided that veneers outweigh all other options, we begin the process by thoroughly cleaning the tooth or teeth in preparation for the veneer placement. A local anesthesia will be used to numb the area, then a thin layer of enamel is removed from the tooth or teeth being treated. Impressions of the tooth or teeth are made to ensure the custom fit and form of your veneers create a natural-looking smile. Temporary veneers are sometimes placed while the permanent veneers are being designed.
At the following visit, teeth are cleaned and the tooth’s surface is etched to ensure a strong bond between your natural teeth and dental veneer. The customized veneer is then bonded to the tooth using a dental cement and hardened using a special light, which secures the veneer to the tooth.
Finally, any necessary adjustments are made to ensure you are completely satisfied with the look and feel of your new teeth. We will also schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure your veneers are comfortable with day-to-day use.
With proper care and maintenance, such as careful brushing and flossing, your veneers can last as long as 10 years. After 10 years or so, replacements may need to be made and bonded to the teeth.
If you think porcelain dental veneers might be the right choice for you, give us a call. Our highly trained staff and expert dental professionals can help you attain a healthy, beautiful smile no matter what your current dental state may be.
How Dental Veneers Can Transform Your Smile
A comprehensive change in the way your teeth look is the most significant benefit of dental veneers. As dental veneers can transform your smile and make it bright and confident, they are an effective solution to many kinds of dental issues. Since they take the support of your natural teeth, dental veneers do not require surgery. Moreover, this also drastically reduces recovery time. The veneers are customized to match your teeth and give a minimal indication that they are a cosmetic dentistry add-on. What's more, as your dental veneers are made of a stain-resistant material, your teeth will remain white and bright despite consuming stains-inducing beverages. Dental veneers are perfect dental solution for a life-altering smile and increased confidence.
Placing dental veneers, like most cosmetic dentistry procedures, can involve some amount of discomfort. While patients are expected to experience a bit of inconvenience during the process of installing the veneers, we try our best to keep you comfortable during the dental procedure so that you do not feel any pain while we prepare your teeth to place the veneers. The duration of the procedure can be several weeks—involving a period of being cautious in the activities undertaken and food intake. For example, after we provide you with temporary veneers, avoid playing football. It is also advised that you schedule the procedure when it is most convenient for you in every way.
Paying For Dental Veneers
We realize that a health insurance company may choose not to pay for your dental veneers. However, we will try to work it out with your insurance company to see that your plan gets you the dental care you need, immaterial of how much the insurer is willing to pay. Also, if you are uninsured, we provide several financing solutions. It is our objective at Elite Dentistry to make dental veneers affordable for you.
Dr. Le and the entire staff at Elite Dentistry are fantastic. I was recently told by another dentist that I needed to have two crowns replaced with dental implants. After reading so many great reviews online (including my insurance's website), I went to see Dr. Le. After a comprehensive analysis, Dr. Le explained that we could replace my current crowns and keep my natural teeth, which is always the ultimate goal.
