Dental Veneers Fair Haven VT
Porcelain Dental Veneers | Cosmetic Dentist
Porcelain dental veneers are custom-made thin laminates placed on the front of your teeth by a cosmetic dentist. They correct stained, chipped, and misshapen teeth. You can also hide other imperfections like gaps with porcelain dental veneers. Patients choose porcelain veneers for the natural appearance and durability. They also do not stain easily which is great for patients that are concerned about diet restrictions.
Are porcelain dental veneers for everyone?
Every patient that wants to correct their smile needs an exam and consultation to determine the best solutions. Ultimately, your teeth and gums need to be healthy before application. Patients that suffer from teeth grinding and clenching need to wear a mouth guard as directed. Porcelain dental veneers are sturdy but can get damaged if abused. Patients also need to be aware that tooth enamel is permanently lost during this procedure. And, veneers will need to be replaced within 10 years or so.
What if my tooth enamel is worn down?
Typically, porcelain dental veneers are an option. Your dental exam and consultation will confirm.
Will I need to take mouth impressions?
Yes. The mouth impression is made to customize the veneer. It helps the lab technician create a veneer that fits properly and looks natural for your smile.
Is the porcelain veneer color matched?
Yes. Porcelain dental veneers are color matched for a natural look. If you are considering a brighter smile, we suggest to professionally whiten your teeth first.
How should I care for my teeth after the treatment?
Maintain good oral health by brushing twice a day and flossing daily. The underlying tooth can still suffer from decay and gum disease. Also, you may notice teeth sensitivity. This discomfort can be minimized by using a toothpaste made for sensitivity.
