What Are Veneers?
Veneers are a type of cosmetic dental prosthesis. They are similar to a crown as they cover up your natural teeth and change how they look. However, unlike crowns, veneers only cover up the front surfaces of your teeth. They are intended to correct cosmetic problems with your smile, such as slightly-crooked teeth and gaps between your teeth.
Since veneers cover up the entire front of your tooth, they can treat almost any cosmetic dental issue. They’re extremely versatile and very durable. Modern porcelain veneers can last 10-15 years or longer.
The Benefits of Veneers
Veneers have a number of unique advantages and benefits. First, they look and feel completely natural. The porcelain material used for modern veneers looks just like tooth enamel, and comes in a variety of colors so that Dr. Cristescu can match the color of your veneers with your surrounding natural teeth.
Because they are so versatile, veneers are an “all-in-one” treatment. In most cases, a set of veneers can be used to completely restore your smile in just 2 short appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks.
Veneers also require no special care beyond regular brushing and flossing, and regular visits to Eastside Family Dentistry. As long as you care for your mouth properly by brushing twice a day for two minutes and flossing once per day, your veneers will last for a very long time.
Not only that, but veneers are completely stain-resistant. Unlike natural enamel, porcelain is nonporous, so it’s not possible for your veneers to become stained. They’ll continue to look bright and beautiful for years to come.
The Veneers Placement Process
After you’ve been approved for veneers by Dr. Alexandra Cristescu, the placement process usually takes two appointments at Eastside Family Dentistry. At your first appointment, your teeth must be prepared for veneers.
Dr. Cristescu will begin by cleaning and numbing your mouth. Then, she will use a dental drill to remove a thin layer of enamel from each tooth that is getting a veneer. This step is required to ensure that the veneers fit properly and can bond closely to your teeth. After your teeth have been trimmed, she’ll take impressions of your smile using dental putty.
Once your impressions have been taken, Dr. Cristescu will apply a set of temporary veneers to your teeth to protect them, and you’ll be sent home. Your impressions will be sent to a dental lab, where your final set of veneers will be built. This process usually takes 2-3 weeks.
After your final set of veneers has been sent to our office, you’ll come in for your final appointment. Dr. Cristescu will check your veneers to make sure they fit, then bond them to your teeth, completing the procedure.
