Best Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic veneers can be used to quickly hide chips and stains on your enamel, improve misaligned or worn down teeth, and fix teeth that are unevenly shaped or spaced. At Chestnut Hill Dental, your cosmetic veneers will be custom made to fit comfortably over your teeth for an attractive and natural look. In your consultation, your goals and expectations will be understood so we can customize your treatment. We will also determine if you are a good candidate for cosmetic veneers by analyzing your overall oral health. You should not have signs of gum problems, or habitually clench your jaw and grind your teeth (called bruxism).
What To Expect with Porcelain Veneers
When you have developed your unique treatment plan, digital or physical impressions of your teeth will be taken. Your cosmetic veneers could be created in our office while you wait, or the impressions can be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be crafted out of high-quality porcelain material. When your custom veneers are ready, a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth will be removed. This creates space for the veneers and improves the bond for a more natural result that lasts a long time. Once your veneers are bonded, minor adjustments will be made so your veneers fit well.
Porcelain Veneers Recovery
Since getting veneers usually does not require anesthesia, you should be able to get back to your daily activities after your appointment. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold food for a few days, but this should subside naturally. Your veneers should be cleaned like your natural teeth with frequent brushing and flossing. While porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains compared to your natural enamel, you should still avoid staining food and drinks to keep your smile bright. To avoid chipping your veneers, you should not chew on hard objects, such as ice or your fingernails. Continue to attend dental exams and cleanings at Chestnut Hill Dental so we can monitor the condition of your cosmetic veneers, teeth, and overall oral health. We will also let you know if your porcelain veneers will need to be repaired or replaced.
Porcelain Veneers Insurance Coverage
Veneers are a cosmetic procedure, so they are generally not included in dental insurance. Chestnut Hill Dental does accept many payment methods, including medical financing, to make your treatment easier to afford. During your consultation, your procedure plan will be customized to fit your goals and budget. We will go over an estimate for your treatment and explain your payment options.
