Are you happy with your smile? Do you want to change the shape and look of your teeth?
Veneers may be the right fit for you! At DiMichaelangelo Family Dentistry, we can give you the perfect smile you’ve been looking for.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are an excellent way to change the shape and look of your smile. They are made out of porcelain, so they’re strong and don’t stain. Unlike porcelain veneers, bonded veneers stain very severely. Porcelain veneers allow the veneers to last much longer and they have a much more natural look than bonded veneers.
The Veneer Process
A consultation with us is a great place to start! You can schedule a consultation by sending us a message on Instagram or Facebook, scheduling online at healthysmiles.com, or calling any of our four locations! From this consultation, our dentists will determine if you’re a good candidate for this procedure.
It’s common for veneers to require some tooth structure removal, but in some cases the veneers can be glued onto teeth without any tooth structure removal.
Once the teeth are prepped and necessary removal has been done if needed, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth. Then they will send it to a dental lab for the veneers to be made. While your veneers are being made in the dental lab, you will have temporary veneers for about three weeks.
When the dental lab finishes your veneers, we will call you to schedule another appointment to remove your temporary veneers and get your permanent veneers! Our dentist will check to make sure the veneers fit on your teeth. From there, a special light is placed on the veneer to cure the cement used to bond the veneer to the tooth. After this process, the dentist will make any adjustments that may be needed.
After these necessary appointments, the dentist may want to see you back in the office to check that the veneers are functioning correctly and that you will be able to use them in the same way that you were able to use your regular teeth.
How do I care for my Veneers?
Caring for your veneers isn’t much different from caring for your regular teeth. Being diligent with brushing and flossing is very important! Being mindful of what you bite into is also important. There aren’t very many restrictions on having veneers. Almost everything you were able to do with regular teeth, you can still do with veneers. It’s truly the best solution for perfect teeth!
