How Are Veneers Placed?
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Addresses Multiple Issues
In a single treatment, veneers can combine the effects of teeth whitening, orthodontics, and dental bonding.
Veneers are more stain-resistant than natural teeth, allowing you to maintain the results of this cosmetic dentistry treatment for years with proper care.
Improved Appearance & Confidence
Porcelain veneers can improve your appearance, helping to increase your self-confidence and willingness to smile.
Good Candidates for Veneers
Veneers are a highly versatile and customizable cosmetic treatment that can address a wide range of aesthetic concerns, such as:
- Uneven teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Worn teeth
Patients who do not qualify for traditional veneers may be able to transform their smile with Lumineers, which are minimal-prep veneers. In many cases, Lumineers can be placed on the teeth without removing any tooth enamel; in other cases, we may remove a very small amount.
This treatment option is best for patients with very minor cosmetic flaws in order to ensure Lumineers don't look bulky or fake. If Dr. Tavoian finds that traditional veneers will look more like natural teeth and produce a better aesthetic result, he will recommend this option. Overall, we can help you determine the optimal cosmetic dentistry treatment plan to fit your needs, cosmetic goals, and budget when you visit us for a dental consultation at our Cedar City practice.
The Veneers Treatment Process
Your dental veneers will be designed to look as natural and beautiful as possible.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Brush your teeth and veneers with a gentle, non-abrasive toothpaste using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Gel toothpastes are typically ideal, while whitening toothpastes tend to be harsher. It is also important to use a light touch when brushing the teeth. This will prevent premature damage to your veneers.
Patients should floss at least once a day to keep the underlying teeth healthy and prevent cavities and gum disease. If oral health problems affect a tooth with veneers, the veneer will need to be removed to address the problem.
Avoid Bad Habits
Using your teeth as tools, biting your fingernails, and chronic teeth grinding can gradually damage your veneers or cause them to become dislodged. Take care of your veneers and teeth to make them last as long as possible.
