-Stained teeth as a result of root canal treatment, fluoride, medicines and when teeth whitening is not effective

-Teeth that are worn down or broken.

-Close teeth gaps.

-Teeth that are unevenly shaped and misaligned.

Dental Veneers Placement

-The dentist cleans the tooth, chooses the correct shade, then removes a small amount of enamel to create space for the veneer.

– A temporary dental veneer will be positioned on the tooth while the permanent veneer is created.

-When the veneer is ready, the dentist removes the temporary veneer and adheres the permanent one.

-Your bite is examined to assure a proper fit.

-A follow-up visit is likely to be scheduled to further examine your new smile.

Before the patient gets dental veneers the following is important to note:

-Gum and teeth need to be healthy before you get dental veneers. The dentist can give treatment to any disease or tooth deterioration in advance of placing dental veneers.

-Patients with bruxism are likely to be recommended for a mouthguard to protect the veneers.

-Dental veneers become free or loose over time and thus new veneers might be required.

Dental Veneers Maintenance

-Avoid biting on your fingernails and chewing on tough substances such as ice since dental veneers can breakdown when they are subjected to force.

– Hygienically brush and floss your teeth and gums every day to prevent decay and periodontal disease.

-Dental veneers may take a few days before you get used to them. Contact your dentist if you experience discomfort or have any concerns.
