What to know about veneers
Veneers can be a great solution for teeth that are worn, chipped, very yellowed and even crooked. The beauty is they are long lasting and durable…just like natural teeth!
First and foremost, it is important to ensure you are a candidate for veneers. A consultation with Dr. Milan will involve an inspection of your teeth to determine their health to make sure you are, indeed, a good candidate and are free of gum disease and tooth decay.
Your next appointment will begin the prep work for your veneers. This will involve a thorough cleaning of the teeth. Next, some of the tooth enamel will need to be shaved down. The reason for this is to ensure your new veneers adhere properly and comfortably to the natural tooth. Then, impressions of your teeth are taken, and Dr. Milan will talk with you about the desired shape and shade of your new veneers.
After your veneers are created, they can then be placed. This is done with a special dental cement. Once bonded in place, they will be adjusted and polished for a perfect appearance.
Caring for your veneers is just like caring for your natural teeth. Good oral hygiene with brushing twice daily and flossing every day, along with seeing us twice annually for your exam are key.
You should also take care to protect your veneers with a mouthguard if you are involved in contact sports. And never use your teeth as a tool – i.e., biting down on objects.
With proper care, your veneers can last for years to come.
