What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a quick and minimally invasive way to enhance your smile without invasive dental procedures. Treatment can correct chipped or crooked teeth, as well as fix gaps and spaces between the teeth. Veneers can also help improve stained teeth by masking their appearance. Patients at Knight Dental Care especially love veneers because they are minimal prep, which means we only need to remove a small amount of enamel in order to apply the veneer. Your teeth will look completely natural and uniform after the procedure.
Who Can Get Porcelain Veneers?
Cosmetic veneers may be used to rapidly mask stains and chips in your enamel, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix any teeth that are poorly spaced or shaped. At Knight Dental Care, your cosmetic veneers will be custom created to fit comfortably over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. At your consultation, cosmetic dentist Dr. Knight will listen to your goals and concerns so he can customize your procedure. Dr. Knight will also determine whether you're a good candidate for veneers by assessing the total health of your mouth. You should not have signs of gum problems, or routinely grind your teeth and clench your jaw. If you have any more questions about whether you're a good candidate for porcelain veneers, call our Midland, MI office today.
What is The Process For Getting Porcelain Veneers?
When you and cosmetic dentist Dr. Knight decide on your personalized treatment program, he will take dental impressions. Your custom veneers will be made from high-quality porcelain material. When your veneers are ready, Dr. Knight will take off a little bit of enamel from your teeth. This allows room for your veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural result that lasts a long time. Once your veneers are bonded, Dr. Knight may make minor adjustments so your veneers are comfortable.
What can I expect after receiving porcelain veneers?
Since getting cosmetic veneers normally doesn't require anesthesia, you should be able to resume your daily activities following your appointment. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold meals for a couple of days, but that should fade away. Veneers should be cared for just like your own natural teeth with frequent flossing and brushing. While cosmetic veneers are more resistant to stains compared to natural enamel, you still need to avoid staining food and drinks to keep your smile bright. To avoid harming your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, such as ice or your fingernails. Continue to schedule dental exams and cleanings at Knight Dental Care so we can monitor the condition of your veneers, natural teeth, and general oral health. Dr. Knight will tell you if your cosmetic veneers will need to be replaced or repaired.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Do porcelain veneers ruin your natural teeth?
At Knight Dental Care, Dr. Edward Knight offers minimal prep porcelain veneers to help preserve the integrity of your natural teeth. With minimal prep, only a small amount of the enamel will be shaved down prior to the placement of veneers. During your initial consultation, Dr. Knight will determine if you are an optimal candidate for minimal prep porcelain veneers.
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
If taken care of properly, porcelain veneers can last for decades. It is important that you continue to attend regular dental exams and cleanings so that the health of your veneers can be evaluated. Additionally, any damage that occurs to your veneers can be effectively treated as needed.
Will porcelain veneers feel like my natural teeth?
When provided by a skilled dental professional, like Dr. Knight, porcelain veneers should resemble the feel of your natural teeth. You should not even notice them throughout your normal daily routine, such as when eating, sleeping, drinking, or talking. If you do feel any discomfort, you should schedule an appointment to have your veneers adjusted to a more comfortable fit.
