If you are tired of looking in the mirror at misshapen, crooked, broken, or stained teeth and are ready to make a change, Monica Neely Dentistry can help. Dental veneers can help restore and repair the look and function of your teeth – and smile!
What are Veneers?
Veneers are a popular solution for fixing broken or cracked teeth that are relatively healthy and stable enough to support the weight of a veneer. Veneers are made from porcelain that looks and feels like real teeth. They instantly improve your smile and can help boost your self-esteem while preventing further damage from occurring to your existing teeth.
Porcelain veneers are durable, lightweight, and instantly improve the appearance of your smile. They are attached to your existing teeth using dental bonding. Once they are set, they can last for many years.
Why Might You Get Veneers?
Patients looking to improve the look and appearance of their smile come to Monica Neely Dentistry in Edmond OK because of our team’s knowledge and dedication to improving their oral health. There are many reasons why our team would recommend veneers, including:
- Chipped and broken teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Visible or old fillings
- Cosmetic or aesthetic reasons
- And more!
Regardless of the reasons patients seek out porcelain veneers, one thing is for sure: they’re never disappointed in the results!
What is the Process for Getting Veneers?
With today’s technology and recent advancements made in the dental industry, getting a beautiful smile is easier than ever. Whether you want to improve the look of one tooth or all of your teeth, a set of porcelain veneers are no longer reserved for the rich and famous.
We’ll treat you with compassion and understanding from the moment you walk into our dental office. We know that a visit to the dentist might not be your favorite task of the week, so we’ll work hard to ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed during each and every appointment. We’ll walk you through the process of placing veneers on your teeth:
- After being completely numb, we’ll reshape the tooth using dental tools designed to leave the tooth ready to accept the veneers;
- We’ll use the digital impression system (Itero) for the lab so that we can get veneers made that exactly match your existing teeth;
- You’ll leave with temporary veneers in place that will prevent you from feeling self-conscious about your teeth while they are in treatment;
- At the second appointment, we’ll permanently bond (adhere) the veneers to your tooth and you’ll be on your way before you know it.
The entire dental veneers process takes only a few days, giving you a beautiful smile again in no time. If you’ve been thinking about doing something about that crooked smile or improving the look of a cracked tooth, consider porcelain veneers.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Veneers look and feel like your real teeth and should be cared for just as you would care for your regular teeth. Regular brushing and flossing is required to keep your dental veneers – and your real teeth – looking and performing in tip-top shape. You’ll be invited for regular check-ups and cleanings at our Edmond OK dental office to keep your teeth strong. With proper care, veneers can last about ten years, depending on wear and tear and how well you take care of them.
We’re happy to answer any questions you may have and help you make a decision about whether or not porcelain veneers are right for you.
