Veneers Q & A
How can veneers help me?
Dental veneers are made of a durable porcelain material that can withstand the force of chewing and biting. These very thin tooth covers go over the front of your teeth and correct many types of smile imperfections. Dental veneers may be the ideal solution for you to correct:
- Minor gaps and misalignment issues
- Chips and small cracks
- Severe discoloration
Plus, veneers are resistant to staining. This means you can enjoy your coffee, tea, or red wine without worrying about staining your teeth.
What is the veneers treatment process like?
Madison Lakes Dental provides the most up-to-date veneers treatment services available. Modern veneer treatments involve removing a minimal amount of tooth enamel from targeted teeth. This process, which causes little-to-no discomfort, creates a flat and even surface for the optimal fitting of your veneers.
After prepping your teeth, your dentist needs impressions of them to send to the lab. It can take about two or three weeks for the lab to fabricate your veneers, so the team schedules you for a follow-up visit to complete your service. Depending on your specific treatment plan, you may get temporary veneers to protect your teeth while you wait.
During your final veneers appointment, your dentist holds your veneers up to your teeth one-by-one to ensure they fit properly and comfortably. They can adjust your veneers if needed to perfect the fit. The last step involves bonding your veneers to your teeth.
How long can I expect veneers to last?
The team at Madison Lakes Dental wants to ensure your veneers last for as long as possible. Though most veneers last for as long as 10-15 years, your veneers can certainly last longer with proper care.
It’s important to come to the office every six months for a professional cleaning and dental exam to ensure you get the most out of your veneers. The team also spends time counseling you about dietary changes you should consider to minimize damage to your veneers.
