Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments around – and for good reason! Veneers offer a wide range of benefits, such as:
As mentioned above, veneer treatment is a straightforward cosmetic dentistry procedure that can typically be completed in just two trips to our conveniently located dental office in Fort Worth.
During your first visit, Dr. Patel will carefully examine your teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy enough for veneer treatment. Once the go-ahead is given, Dr. Patel will remove a tiny layer of enamel – less than a millimeter – from your teeth to make room for the veneers. He will then take impressions of your teeth to send to the dental lab and give you temporary veneers to wear for just a few weeks.
Once your custom veneers have been crafted by the dental lab, you will return to our office for the placement procedure. Dr. Patel will remove your temporary veneers, clean your teeth, and then secure your new permanent veneers in place using bonding cement and a special curing light.
After the placement procedure is complete, you can walk out of our doors and start showing off your beautiful new smile!
You can help maintain your newly rejuvenated smile by taking excellent care of your veneers. The good news is that caring for veneers is simple! Basically, you should do your best to follow these three easy tips:
If you’re looking to make over your smile, veneers are likely a great solution for you. However, they are quite an investment, so it pays to be well-informed about the procedure. We’re here to help! Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we receive about veneers in Fort Worth. If you don’t see the information that you’re looking for below, don’t worry! Give us a call and we’d be happy to walk you through the procedure and get you started with an initial consultation.
Veneers aren’t technically permanent because they will eventually need to be replaced. However, they are considered to be irreversible. To ensure that veneers fit properly on the teeth, small amounts of protective enamel need to be removed, and it will not grow back. For this reason, teeth that have been prepared in this way will always need to be covered with either veneers or crowns.
Veneers that are made from porcelain are stain-resistant. This is because porcelain is a nonporous material, so the particles in dark-colored foods and beverages have a harder time slipping beneath the surface. Ultimately, you should be able to drink your morning cup of coffee without worrying too much about staining your veneers. Just keep in mind that veneers are not stain-proof, so excessive consumption of coffee could still have a negative impact. Moderation is key!
Some people have trouble pronouncing certain words when they first get veneers, resulting in a temporary lisp. This is partially due to muscle memory, as the tongue isn’t used to accounting for the presence of veneers when you talk. The tiny difference in thickness affects the way the tongue moves. The tongue will eventually adjust on its own, but practicing the pronunciation of certain sounds can help to speed this along.
The goal of veneers is for all of your visible teeth to match, so you’ll receive an appropriate number of veneers to accomplish this goal. Some patients opt for a single veneer to cover one pesky tooth while others get anywhere from 6 to 12 for more complete smile makeover. During your initial consultation with us, we’ll discuss the goals you have for your smile so we can determine what the magic number is for you.
