Sometimes, even the best dental procedures cannot fix what’s naturally in your mouth, and it is better to start from scratch. If you want to fully renew your smile without relying on dentures, dental veneers might be the solution you are looking for. Once installed, veneers will fill your mouth with gleaming white, perfectly straight teeth that look so real no one will look twice.
Veneers might be the secret for regaining confidence in your smile.
What Are Veneers?
Dental veneers are designed to look and act just like your regular teeth, all while gaining support from your natural tooth. These porcelain or resin teeth covers are thin, custom-made shells that fit exactly over your natural teeth for a seamless look. Once in place, veneers are a permanent fixture in your mouth and should last for decades without any damage.
Veneers are used to cover cracks, chips, gaps, stains and other imperfections in your natural teeth to give you a movie-star smile instead. We offer the highest quality veneers at AustinDentalCare and promise our procedure will give you the best smile possible.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Veneers?
There are many benefits for choosing veneers over other dental care strategies. Veneers provide:
- A more natural tooth appearance
- An easier adjustment for gum tissue than invasive implants
- Easy color matching for your regular teeth
- Stain-resistant surfaces that stay bright white
- Strong, aesthetic alternative to traditional crowns
What’s Involved with Getting Veneers?
Getting permanent veneers for your teeth is a multistep process to ensure the perfect fit. All the veneers we use at Austin Dental Care are custom-made to fit your exact specifications, and they are thoroughly tested before we put them in your mouth.
Getting dental veneers requires three dental appointments: one for a consultation, and two to make and place the veneers.
Our dental team will meet with you to learn exactly what results you want to achieve. We will look through your x-rays to determine what teeth are best candidates for veneers, and make a treatment plan for your next appointment.
During the first treatment phase, our dental team will remove a thin layer of enamel from the existing tooth to ensure the veneer will fit. Imprints are then made of these teeth, which are sent to a lab to create your custom veneers. Since this usually takes several weeks, we will insert temporary veneers for you to wear in the meantime.
For your final appointment, we ensure that the veneers are the perfect fit before placing them. Dental adhesive is then used to permanently stick each one in place, giving you a stunningly straight smile in seconds.
Maintaining Your Veneers
Our professional-grade veneers can last a lifetime with proper care, but problems can occur if you do not take the post-treatment process seriously. Make sure you treat them as you would your natural teeth, and carefully floss and brush them every day. Non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste is usually best, but your particular needs might be different. If you have a habit of biting or clenching your mouth, our team might recommend a mouth guard at night.
Treat your veneers gently, and they will give you a gleaming smile for years to come.
