Benefits of Veneers
Veneers are a popular and common cosmetic dental service because they address many dental concerns, including:
- Cracks or chips
- Worn teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Damaged teeth
- Stains on teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Broken or damaged teeth
Veneers vs. Dental Crowns
Veneers and crowns both cover dental issues, but there are a few significant differences between the two dental services. A veneer is a thin restoration designed to custom fit the front and sides of a tooth. Its main goal is to improve the look of the tooth. A dental crown does enhance the tooth’s appearance, but it also boosts the strength of the entire tooth. A crown covers the whole tooth, protecting against structural damage. We will examine the condition of your tooth before deciding as to whether you would benefit more from a veneer or dental crown.
Veneer Placement Procedure
Veneer placement is an easy, pain-free procedure. The steps include:
We'll remove a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of your tooth to make room for the veneers.
Dr. Garrett will make a mold of your tooth and match a veneer shade.
Your tooth is sent to our lab, where a customized veneer is made. You can wear a temporary veneer in the meantime.
Dr. Garrett places the customized veneer on your tooth to check the shape and fit. After adjustments, the veneer is bonded to your tooth.
Porcelain veneers are custom-fit covers that cover the front surface of your tooth. They are made from thin porcelain for a durable and stain-resistant construction. Porcelain veneers are the perfect choice when you want a more permanent repair with a natural look.
Proper Care For Veneers
With proper care, veneers should last for decades. Proper care includes:
- Brushing with a soft toothbrush
- Floss regularly
- Don’t bite down on hard food
- Stay away from smoking
- Don’t clench or grind your teeth
- Avoid foods that stain teeth
