Are chips, cracks, discoloration, or misalignment preventing you from showing off your smile? Our Westerville dental office offers several cosmetic treatments that can transform your smile. One treatment we often suggest is porcelain veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that are placed onto the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance and make your smile more uniform. They are custom-made and can address a variety of cosmetic issues, such as mildly crooked teeth, small gaps between teeth, severe discoloration, misshapen teeth, and uneven teeth.
What to Expect When Getting Porcelain Veneers
The process of getting veneers starts with a consultation. During this consultation, we’ll evaluate your teeth and discuss goals for your smile. If veneers are deemed suitable, our team will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface. This is necessary to ensure that the veneers fit properly and look natural.
Once the teeth are prepared, we’ll take an impression of your teeth and send them to a dental lab, where the veneers will be custom-crafted to fit your teeth perfectly. You may be given temporary veneers to wear in the meantime. When your permanent veneers are ready, we’ll ask you to return to our office for a final fitting!
How to Care for Veneers
Fortunately, caring for veneers is relatively easy. Just like the rest of your natural teeth, veneers require daily brushing and flossing, and routine dental visits. Additionally, consume a balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and avoid tobacco products. These habits will promote good oral health and maximize the longevity of your veneers.
