About Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic enhancement with porcelain veneers can restore a lovely smile by covering certain aesthetic concerns, such as cracks, stains, chips, small gaps, and more concerns. Thin, personalized shells that sit over the front enamel of the patient’s teeth, dental veneers create a natural, good-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are long-lasting, however still thin enough to be discreet, which helps the porcelain veneers to blend in with the natural teeth. Having dental veneers created by our dentists at DentalWorks - South Plaza in Akron, OH is a efficient, easy way to mask various physical flaws and make a restored, glowing smile.
What to Expect
To initiate the procedure of making the personalized dental veneers our dentists needs to make space for the dental veneer by removing a thin layer of enamel from every tooth that is going to be concealed to the dental veneer. Once the teeth have been prepared, our dentists will take a digital image of the teeth, which will be used to create the custom dental veneers in a dental laboratory. A temporary veneer can be used to protect the teeth until the final dental veneers are returned to DentalWorks - South Plaza in Akron, OH. The custom dental veneers will be attached to the front of the teeth using a dental bonding agent. Our dentists will tweak the dental veneers if needed to give the patient a comfortable and snug fit.
A follow-up appointment is usually scheduled for about 5 - 7 days after the dental veneers are placed to ensure the attachment is secure and the fit is still comfortable. Dental veneers are more resistant to staining than the natural teeth, but to keep the dental veneers in their pristine condition, our dentists advise avoiding staining foods and drinks, like tea, coffee, soda, and red wine. Patients should start or continue to follow a good home dental care routine, including brushing the teeth using a non-abrasive toothpaste, regular flossing, and visiting our dentists for dental cleanings and oral exams at DentalWorks - South Plaza. With good care, dental veneers may last up to 20 years.
Dental veneers are categorized a cosmetic service, so it is usually not covered by dental insurance. However, DentalWorks - South Plaza in Akron, OH takes many payment options, not to mention our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - South Plaza can help patients with financing plans to make dental veneers more affordable.
