The Application Process for Porcelain Veneers
Durable and strong, your porcelain veneers will be thin shells manufactured from dental ceramic. First, Dr. Koch or one of his trained dental staff will remove an insignificant amount of enamel from both the sides and front of your tooth. This process creates space for the veneer and prevents the repaired tooth from looking or feeling bulky.
Next, Dr. Koch or his hygienist makes an impression of your primed tooth. This process allows the technician at the dental laboratory to replicate the contour of your tooth and surrounding teeth. This step also includes Dr. Koch selecting the proper color to match the surrounding teeth, giving you a seemingly, natural look. Then, the office gives the specifications to their trusted dental laboratory where the work continues to create veneers specifically shaped for your teeth. In most cases, the porcelain veneer process involves one to two weeks.
After the porcelain veneers are manufactured, you will return to the Advanced Dental Care office. Dr. Koch will fit the veneers on your prepared teeth, checking for proper shape and fit and will make any proper adjustments. Then, he or his hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth, making sure the area is free of any impurities. After the cleaning portion of the veneer process is completed, Dr. Koch bonds the porcelain ceramic veneers to your teeth with strong dental cement. Although unlikely, if any additional adjustments are required, Dr. Koch can perform them at a follow-up appointment.
The staff at Advanced Dental Care is ready to help you decide which dental treatment suits your personal smile makeover. One option is porcelain veneers. Just think; within a couple of weeks, you can have a strong, striking smile by choosing porcelain veneers.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do veneers ruin your teeth?
No, veneers won’t ruin your teeth. While a very small part of your teeth may have to be removed so the veneers look natural, this won’t affect the integrity of your oral health. In fact, the veneers can help protect your teeth, especially if you have cracked or damaged teeth.
The porcelain veneers will cover the fronts of your teeth and make them appear more beautiful without sacrificing the health of your natural teeth.
Are veneers permanent?
Veneers can last for a long time, but they eventually have to be replaced. Taking good care of your veneers can help them to last longer, so proper care is very important. A good oral care routine consists of brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting Dr. Koch for regular oral checkups and cleanings.
You can also extend the lifespan of your veneers by avoiding hard, crunchy foods that can damage your teeth. Chewing on ice or using your teeth as tools can harm your natural teeth as well as your veneers.
How do veneers work?
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are shaped like teeth. They go over the fronts of your natural teeth to give them a more beautiful appearance. All Dr. Koch will do is remove a small amount of enamel from your natural teeth so the veneers won’t stick out and look unnatural, then attach the veneers to your teeth.
Veneers can greatly improve the appearance of your smile. They can fix small gaps, discoloration, uneven appearance, and more. This one treatment can fix multiple issues in one simple treatment.
