Are you looking for a way to enhance your smile? At Superior Dental Health, we offer a variety of cosmetic treatments to help you get the smile you’ve always dreamed of. One of our most popular treatments is porcelain veneers—an extremely versatile option to provide you with a beautiful smile.
Below, we’ll discuss what veneers are and their benefits, as well as the process of applying them. If you have any questions or would like to request an appointment, we invite you to contact our Omaha, NE office today!
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that fit over the front of your teeth. They are designed to blend in with your natural teeth and help hide any chips, cracks, discoloration, or gaps in your smile. Veneers can also be used to reduce the appearance of more serious dental issues, such as misalignment.
The process of applying porcelain veneers typically takes just two visits to our Omaha, NE office.
- During the first visit, our team will prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing a small layer of enamel. This is done to ensure the veneers adhere seamlessly to the tooth without appearing artificial or bulky.
- From there, we will take impressions of your teeth and that will be used to create your custom veneers. While the veneers are being created, you will wear temporary veneers.
- Once your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll come back in for a second visit. At this appointment, our team will check the fit of your veneers and make any necessary adjustments.
- Finally, the veneers will be firmly bonded to your teeth using a dental cement.
It is important to note that once porcelain veneers are applied, they are considered to be permanent. While the veneer itself will eventually require replacement, the procedure itself cannot be reversed. This is due to the step requiring enamel removal
- Once the enamel has been removed, it cannot be replaced. This will leave your teeth more vulnerable to sensitivity and decay, so it is important to replace veneers when they break or become worn down.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are desirable for many reasons. They can be used to achieve a variety of cosmetic goals, from correcting minor imperfections to improving the overall appearance of your smile. Additionally, veneers are stain-resistant and require very little maintenance. Veneers can provide the following benefits:
- Instant smile transformation
- Improved self-esteem
- Durable and long-lasting
Take Care of Your Veneers
Once your veneers are in place, you’ll want to take care of them properly to ensure they last. Veneers are designed to last up to ten years, as long as you practice good oral hygiene and follow a few simple guidelines:
- Avoid chewing on hard objects and grinding your teeth
- Avoid extremely hot or cold foods
- Brush and floss regularly
- Visit our office once every six months for a checkup
