Porcelain veneers are an excellent way to redesign and reshape your entire mouth. Dental veneers are very thin ceramic shells that cover your existing tooth structure. In placing these new veneers on your teeth, you can fix the look of issues such as staining, cracked teeth, spaces, misaligned teeth, and chipped teeth. Porcelain veneers are cosmetic dental treatments that improve the aesthetics of the smile.
Porcelain Veneers in Galveston, TX
In terms of the process to place veneers, it is a process that takes approximately two to three visits. On the first visit, we will discuss the new shape and look of what we will accomplish by placing the veneers. Once we have a plan, we will carefully prepare the teeth to place the new porcelain veneers in our Galveston, TX, office.
As we complete this process, the next step is to take an impression of the newly prepared teeth. This impression will be sent to our laboratory for the final product for fabrication. We only utilize the highest standard laboratory to fabricate all of our work. This process at the laboratory takes between 10-14 days. While the new veneers are being fabricated at the lab, we will provide you with a beautiful temporary solution to wear for this time.
As the veneers are finalized, we will make every effort to make sure that your new veneers will feel just like your natural teeth. We will bond them into place so you can enjoy your new smile for a long time!
Caring For Veneers
Before you receive your permanent veneer, you will first receive a temporary restoration. This is not as sturdy as the permanent version, so you should be careful when cleaning and eating. You should brush the area gently and should not pull up on the tooth when flossing because it could become dislodged. The same goes for eating. You should avoid sticky or chewy foods while you have the temporary in.
There may be some sensitivity and irritation after the temporary or permanent is placed. This is normal and will subside after the soft tissue heals. A warm salt water rinse will help, and you can also take Advil or Tylenol if the pain does not go away.
When the veneer is placed, it may feel awkward for a few days. Your mouth needs to adjust to the new tooth, and it should feel like one of your natural teeth in less than a week. If your bite feels abnormal, you should let your dentist know. When brushing and flossing, you should pay close attention to the area between the veneer and the tooth at the gum line.
What are Lumineers?
Lumineers are very thinly shaped porcelain that is bonded to your tooth. The fact that they are very thin allows us to minimize the preparation of the tooth to create beautiful transformations of your teeth. Because there is minimal preparation, this procedure often has little to no discomfort. The procedure often requires 1-2 visits.
