Veneers Q & A
What are cosmetic veneers?
Cosmetic veneers are thin porcelain shells that the dental specialists at Garden Oaks Dental apply to the front of your teeth to improve the shape and look. This minimally invasive procedure is a more conservative fix to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
What types of conditions can veneers fix?
The team at Garden Oaks Dental uses cosmetic veneers to fix a number of dental conditions, including:
- Worn enamel
- Uneven teeth
- Abnormal spacing
- Discoloration or misshapen teeth
- Decayed or broken teeth
Garden Oaks Dental can also fix the general wear and tear of your teeth with cosmetic veneers.
How do you apply cosmetic veneers?
Placement of cosmetic veneers may take several visits to the Garden Oaks Dental. The first step requires a thorough examination from one of the dental experts at Garden Oaks Dental to make sure you’re a good candidate for cosmetic veneers.
Once they determine that cosmetic veneers are the best solution to your dental problem, you come back to the office so the team can prep your teeth for placement of your cosmetic veneers. The procedure buffs the front of your teeth to make room for the veneer shell. This part of veneer placement may require anesthesia to reduce discomfort.
After your teeth have been prepped, the dental specialist at Garden Oaks Dental makes a mold of your teeth, which they use to create your customized cosmetic veneers.
When the veneers are ready, the dentist bonds the shell to the front of your tooth with a special dental adhesive and seals it with a composite light.
After placement, you may have to come back within two weeks with your new veneers for an evaluation and adjustments as needed.
How do I take care of veneers?
To keep your teeth and your cosmetic veneers healthy, you need to brush and floss daily, and follow up with the dental experts at Garden Oaks Dental as scheduled for evaluations and cleanings.
Your veneers may not be stain-resistant, and the team may recommend you avoid drinks that might cause staining such as coffee, tea, cola, and red wine.
