What Are Veneers?
Veneers consist of a special type of dental prostheses, which are designed to fit over your natural teeth after they have been trimmed. Veneers cover up the front chewing surface of your tooth with a strong, durable, ceramic material. Since they cover up and replace the front of your natural teeth, veneers are extremely versatile for covering up cosmetic flaws. They are often used to hide issues like gapped and crooked teeth, uneven teeth, serious stains, misshapen or small teeth, and more.
Understanding The Veneer Placement Process
It usually takes Dr. Patel 2 appointments over a span of about 2-3 weeks to prepare your teeth and place your veneers. After he has approved you for treatment, you’ll come in for your first appointment. Dr. Patel will begin by cleaning your mouth and numbing your teeth. Next, he will use specialized tools to trim away a very thin layer of enamel from each tooth which is getting a veneer. This step is required to ensure that your veneers fit perfectly, and don’t add any excess bulk to your teeth.
Once your teeth have been trimmed, Dr. Patel will take dental impressions and work with a third-party dental lab to create a set of veneers that will look and feel just like your natural teeth. It takes about 2-3 weeks to create your veneers, so you’ll be sent home with a set of temporary prostheses.
When your veneers arrive at our office, you’ll come in for your last appointment. Dr. Patel will check the fit of each veneer, and make minor adjustments if necessary. Then, he will bond them into place permanently with dental cement, and buff and polish your veneers so that they match your natural teeth.
The Benefits Of Veneers
Veneers are very durable, with a lifespan of 10-15+ years. They look and feel just like natural teeth, and do not require any special treatment beyond regular brushing and flossing, and seeing Dr. Patel every six months for a standard cleaning. The treatment is also minimally-invasive and allows you to restore your teeth quickly over a period of only a few weeks.
