Dental Veneers – A Cosmetic Dental Solution

 
Dental veneers are used to fix crooked, discoloured or damaged teeth while helping you achieve a beautiful smile. They are the best solution for when one or two teeth need repair, without involving extensive work like braces. Our team of dental professionals at My Dentist are experienced in cosmetic dentistry and veneers, and we can help determine if this is the right choice for you.

What is Dental Veneer?

 
A dental veneer is a thin, shell-like covering that fits over a tooth that needs repair. They are custom made of strong porcelain or resin, and designed to match your natural teeth in shape, size and colour. They are long-lasting, and can improve teeth function while restoring your beautiful smile.

Type of Veneers

 
When it comes to dental veneers, different situations require different solutions. Dental veneers are placed over the front teeth for a cosmetic solution to fix or repair teeth, with different types to choose from.

\

Porcelain veneers are the strongest and most popular kind. They are non-toxic, strong and can be created to easily blend with your tooth colour.

\

Composite veneers are also strong and durable and are considered the least invasive. They are not as strong as porcelain, so may not last as long.

\

Lumineers are an affordable option that requires less tooth preparation. They are reversible, but in some cases may be less natural-looking than porcelain.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

 
When you need teeth fixed, you don’t always need a whole mouth makeover. Dental veneers are an efficient solution to fix the function and aesthetics of teeth. This makes dental veneers a popular option for our patients in Alderley.

Dental veneers have numerous benefits, such as durability and stain resistance. They can even make daily oral hygiene easier because sometimes crooked teeth can create areas where food and bacteria can hide, which puts you at risk for decay. But using dental veneers to straighten your teeth can eliminate this issue and spare your gums and the rest of your teeth from future problems. Other benefits include:

Fix discoloured teeth or tooth

Easily bring your teeth back into alignment if only one or two teeth are crooked

Improve the shape of a tooth

Fix and protect worn teeth

Improve your bite for comfort and protection

Improved confidence with a beautiful smile

Dental veneers offer long-lasting results and strong protection. They are a versatile option that can help numerous issues, making them a revolutionary solution in cosmetic dentistry. With a thorough examination, we can determine if this option will help you get the results you are looking for.

Am I a Candidate for Veneers?

Dental veneers are a solution for most patients who want them. A veneer is customised to an individual tooth, and because it will be tightly bonded, shaped and coloured according to your natural tooth, will provide a long-lasting result that can save you money in the future.

Our team at My Dentist in Alderley are experienced with dental veneers and other cosmetic options and can determine if these will be right for your situation. Sometimes teeth that need repair require different solutions, however, such as the following cases:

^

When more than two teeth need aligning, you may also have the choice of Invisalign

^

A tooth that is very crooked may need a different treatment option

^

Teeth with cavities may require repair before a veneer

^

Gum disease can hinder the placement of a veneer or other prosthetics

Rest assured, if you fit into any of the above situations, we can customize a treatment plan to suit your needs. And if veneers sound like an appealing option, we can help determine if you are a candidate.

The Dental Veneer Procedure

 
Digital imaging can help us find hidden problems, so if needed, teeth can be repaired first and not interfere with the veneer in the future. After your examination, the dentist will discuss all options with you, so you can make the choice that is best for you. The following procedure is what you can expect when you choose dental veneers:

You will receive a thorough dental exam with x-rays

This information will allow a veneer to be tailored to fit your teeth

The dentist will prepare your tooth for the veneer

When your tooth is ready, the veneer will be placed to fit snuggly on your tooth

Your dentist will ensure the fit is good, then polish and smooth it

You can enjoy your beautiful new smile

Dental Veneer After Care

 
Your new veneers are part of your teeth and require daily oral maintenance, so they last a long time. Veneers are extremely durable, and protect the tooth underneath, while you still take care of the gum and surrounding area. The following tips can help assist healing:

N

N

Follow brushing and flossing instructions as provided by your dentist

N

Rinse with warm salt water a few times a day to aid tissue healing

N

Take over-the-counter pain medication if you need relief

N

Call the dentist immediately if something doesn’t feel right

Once your mouth is healed, the following guidelines can help you continue to care for your veneers because with proper care, they can last 20 years or longer:
Z

Brush at least twice each day

Z

Floss once each day, or as needed

Z

Use a dentist-recommended mouthwash daily

Avoid biting hard objects like ice

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I get porcelain veneers or composite ones?

The type of veneers ideal for your smile will depend on the results you desire and your budget. To help you select the type that is best for you, we invite you to schedule a consultation. During this appointment, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of porcelain and composite ones so you can choose how you would like to move forward.

Am I a candidate?

Most people will be able to get veneers but there are a few contraindications. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, you likely are not a candidate. That’s because you will probably chip and wear down these shells from grinding your teeth. In certain instances, however, we can provide you a custom night guard to wear at night to protect your veneers from damage. Individuals with gum disease or weakened teeth likely won’t be able to get veneers.

We will go over any possible contraindications at your consultation and ensure that veneers are suitable for you before beginning treatment.

How long will veneers last?

They can last for many years as long as you care for them properly. Care includes brushing, flossing and having biyearly dental checkups. Porcelain shells will last the longest—up to 10-15 years—provided they are cared for properly.

Do you suggest any ways to extend the life of my veneers?

Yes, they will last longer if you keep several things in mind. In addition to maintaining excellent home hygiene habits and checkups with us, know that hard substances will harm your veneers. Never open packages with your teeth or chew on ice. A good thing to remember is this: anything that could harm your regular teeth can damage your veneers.

What will the cost be to get them?

It depends on the number of teeth you’d like to have veneers applied to. We will detail pricing with you after we determine how many you’ll need.

Will my smile appear natural if I get veneers?

Yes. Our objective is to ensure your smile looks entirely natural when your treatment has been completed. One of the ways we do that is through colour-matching your veneers to your preferences. We want to be sure that the shade is appropriate for you. The custom fittings also will be crafted in the shape that you prefer. Some patients opt to have slight imperfections added to their veneers to give them a more natural appearance. We’ll ensure that you’re delighted with how they look.
