The Process of Getting Dental Veneers

The Process of Getting Dental Veneers

Posted by Deborah Sprott on Jul 13 2023, 04:54 AM

A captivating smile can light up a room and leave a lasting impression. However, not everyone is born with a naturally flawless set of teeth. Fortunately, dental advancements have paved the way for transformative solutions, and one such solution that has gained immense popularity is dental veneers. Dental veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. At Radiant Dental Care, they are typically made from porcelain or composite resin, meticulously crafted to resemble the natural appearance of teeth. Veneers are a versatile cosmetic dental treatment that can address various aesthetic concerns, including teeth discoloration, chipped or cracked teeth, gaps, misalignment, and even worn-down enamel. Veneers can help you achieve a radiant, picture-perfect smile by concealing these imperfections. 

The Procedure for Dental Veneers 

Before a dentist can give you dental veneers, they will have to conduct tests to determine if you are the right candidate for the procedure. Some of the factors they will look at include the amount of enamel you have on your teeth, any tooth decay or gum disease you may have, the shade of your teeth, and the type of veneer suitable for you. If you are determined as a good candidate for dental veneers, your dentist will then create a treatment plan with you. This will include the number of veneers you need and your desired color. Once a plan is in place, the dentist will prepare your teeth for the procedure. This will involve removing some of the teeth’s enamel to accommodate the veneers. It will also include taking X-rays and digital scans of the teeth used for the veneer. The dentist will also take impressions of the teeth to be sent to the lab where your veneers will be manufactured. Your dentist will then remove a small amount of tooth structure and make molds to be sent to the lab while constructing your custom veneers. Your dentist may also try out a temporary set of veneers on your teeth to ensure they fit and look how you want them before they are ready. After a few weeks, when the final veneers are ready, your dentist will place them on your teeth. They will make any necessary adjustments before permanently attaching it to your natural teeth. 

Caring for Dental Veneers 

  • Brush your teeth at least twice daily, floss daily, and use an antiseptic mouthwash to keep your teeth and gums healthy. 
  • While veneers are durable, they are not indestructible. Avoid biting or chewing on hard objects such as ice or pens, as this can damage your veneers. 
  • Schedule regular check-ups with your dentist for professional cleanings and to ensure your veneers' overall health and longevity.
