Are you unhappy with your teeth’s appearance? Dental veneers can be a great solution to improve your smile and boost your confidence. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells placed over the front surface of your teeth to enhance their color, shape, size, or length. However, if you are considering getting veneers, it’s essential to know what the process involves and what to expect.
At Cochran Family Dental, we understand the importance of having a beautiful smile and are committed to providing high-quality dental care services to our patients. Here’s a guide to the dental veneers process and what you can expect when you choose us for your treatment.
Consultation and Examination
The first step in getting dental veneers is to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced cosmetic dentists. During your visit, our dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and overall oral health to determine if you are a good candidate for veneers. They will also discuss your expectations, goals, and concerns about the treatment.
Preparation of Teeth
If you are a suitable candidate for veneers, our dentist will prepare your teeth for the treatment by removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface of your teeth. This process is necessary to create enough space for the veneers to fit properly and ensure a natural-looking result.
Impression and Design
Once your teeth are prepared, our dentist will take an impression of your teeth and send it to our dental laboratory, where your custom-made veneers will be fabricated. Our dentist will work closely with you to choose the color, shape, and size of your veneers that best matches your natural teeth and enhances your smile’s overall appearance.
Placement of Veneers
Once your veneers are ready, you will return to our office for their placement. Our dentist will first place the veneers on your teeth temporarily to ensure that they fit correctly and match your natural teeth’ color and shape. If any adjustments are needed, they will be made before permanently bonding the veneers to your teeth with a dental adhesive.
After the placement of your veneers, our dentist will provide you with instructions on how to care for your new teeth properly. You should brush and floss your teeth regularly, avoid biting or chewing on hard objects, and schedule regular dental checkups to ensure the longevity of your veneers.
