Veneers are thin shell coverings that are placed on the front surface of your teeth. They are designed to cover tooth imperfections, including:
Created with the help of lab technicians who follow the size, shape, and color specifications provided by Dr. G, you can expect to receive customized veneers that are durable, stain-resistant, and can last a decade or more with proper care and maintenance.
When preparing to undergo treatment for veneers, you will first schedule a consultation with Dr. G. During this appointment, he will examine your oral cavity and determine which teeth should be covered with veneers. While the decision is ultimately up to you, many patients opt to cover only those teeth that are visible to others. However, if you prefer, you can opt to cover all your teeth for a more even appearance.
Once he determines you are eligible for treatment, he will need to prep your teeth by removing a small amount of tooth enamel from the surface, allowing the bonding agent to properly adhere and the veneer to lay flat against your natural tooth. Next, he will take digital impressions of your teeth that produce high-resolution images. These will be sent to a dental lab where technicians can begin to craft your customized veneers. Before you leave, we will apply temporary veneers to your teeth, which you will wear in the meantime.
Once they are ready and have arrived in our office, you will return to have your temporaries removed. Dr. G will then use a skilled hand and trained eye to carefully place each veneer. After completing the process, he will give your teeth a final polish and ensure everything looks even and properly in place.
Hollywood stars are not the only ones turning to veneers. This common cosmetic treatment is readily available for anyone who would like to improve the look of their smile. If you’re tired of feeling depressed or lacking the self-esteem you need to feel good about your appearance, veneers are a great way to quickly transform your look. Not to mention, they provide numerous benefits, such as:
Veneers have the potential to help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. However, before you schedule your cosmetic consultation with Dr. G, you may want to learn more about this treatment and what you can expect from it. That is why we have compiled the following brief list of FAQs. If you do not see the information you were hoping for, you are more than welcome to contact us so we can provide you with personalized assistance.
Usually, veneers are constructed out of dental grade porcelain. The porcelain is translucent like real tooth enamel, which gives it an incredibly lifelike appearance. It is also nonporous, which means that pigments cannot seep into it and cause discoloration. Allergic reactions to dental porcelain are virtually nonexistent.
In many ways, caring for veneers is similar to caring for natural teeth. You should stick to a thorough oral hygiene routine, avoid biting on anything that might chip or break your veneers, and visit your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. Keep in mind that you should always use a low-abrasive toothpaste and a soft brush with veneers because if you accidentally scratch them, the scratches can trap tiny particles and cause your veneers to lose their original beauty. Also, it is best to avoid smoking. Tobacco can discolor the bonding agent that adheres your veneers to your teeth and adversely affect their appearance.
Veneers are a great fit for most adults who want to disguise aesthetic imperfections in their smile. However, they may not be suitable for you at this time if you have significant dental misalignment or you are battling against gum disease or other serious oral health problems. If you cannot receive veneers right now, your cosmetic dentist will strive to put together a treatment plan to help you become a candidate in the future.
Dr. G considers both your natural smile and your facial characteristics when he is designing your veneers. If you have certain preferences, just let him know. For example, you may want your teeth to look more masculine or feminine than they do. You might want your veneers to be bright white, or you may opt for a softer color. Your personal requests will be foremost on Dr. G’s mind during the design process.
