If your smile isn’t quite perfect (and let’s face it, even celebrities need a little help from a cosmetic dentist), you might have thought about getting dental veneers.
These things are super popular and a straightforward fix for many smile issues. Think chipped or cracked teeth, some that are oddly shaped or too small or too big compared to the ones next door, and those stubbornly discolored teeth that won’t budge with regular whitening. Veneers keep your tooth structure intact, makes it strong, and less sensitive to hot and cold stuff. So, here’s how it all goes down:
What is the Process of Veneers
First, you get a full dental check-up. The dentist will figure out which teeth are front and center when you flash that winning smile and which ones could use some veneer love. You’d obviously want all those showstopper teeth to match, right? The dentist will also help you pick a shade that blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. Alternatively, you can go all-in on brightening your teeth, and the veneers will match the new dazzling shade (just so you know, veneers don’t whiten or stain).
- Creating Temporary Veneers
The dentist takes molds of the teeth in question to create temporary veneers. These are like previews you get to wear while the dental lab crafts the real deal. If the temporary ones feel comfy, the lab gets the green light to work on the permanent versions, which takes 2-4 weeks, depending on how many you need.
- Veneer Placement
Back for round two. The teeth in line for veneers get a good cleaning. A special cement is brushed onto each tooth, and a cool light hardens the attachment. Boom, that’s it. Start to finish, you’re looking at just a few weeks to rock a new and improved smile.
And the best part is – with good dental TLC, these veneers can stick around for a solid 10 years or more, making them a bang-for-your-buck upgrade.
Maintaining Your New Smile is a Breeze Now
- Daily oral hygiene like a ritual for both veneers and natural teeth.
- Opt for a soft toothbrush, quality toothpaste, and add fluoride rinse or gel for a thorough clean.
- Gently floss around your veneers.
- Keep gum diseases at bay with regular care.
- Steer clear of teeth-staining foods and hard objects that can harm your veneers.
- If teeth grinding (bruxism) is an issue, consult your doctor for effective management, ensuring your smile stays flawless.
