Veneers are beautiful, strong, and long-lasting solutions that can safely give you a gorgeous smile. Read on to learn more about how dental veneers work and if you may be a candidate for this transformational procedure.
Covering the Basics
Porcelain veneers are thin strips made traditionally of porcelain or resin that a doctor or dentist can place on top of existing teeth to improve their appearance. These veneers can be molded and tinted to resemble the rest of your teeth and create a natural-looking smile. Depending on the state of your existing teeth, veneers can also reduce the appearance of gaps between the teeth.
During your consultation at Vista Hills Family Dental, our doctors will examine your teeth, analyze your mouth, and show you exactly how veneers can change your appearance so you can see for yourself the incredible impact this procedure can have on your smile.
Stronger. Brighter. Better.
Veneers are a powerful treatment because they offer protection, improvement, and long-lasting benefits to your smile while preserving your existing teeth. While some enamel from the existing tooth must be removed to affix the veneer, it generally requires far less damage to the tooth than a crown or a cap, allowing you to keep more of your existing tooth. Veneers are beautiful, durable, and stain-resistant. They are also more affordable than some alternatives for smile reconstruction.
A great choice for healthy smiles
While dental veneers are a great solution, they are not for everyone. In order to be a candidate for dental veneers, you must have healthy teeth and gums, and the tooth must have enough surface area to have room for the veneer to stick to it.
If you experience tooth decay or gum disease, these issues will need to be corrected before considering veneers. Thankfully, the expert dentists at Vista Hills Family Dental have ways to help you improve your smile and treat these issues. They will go through your treatment options with you, so you can feel confident that you are on the right path to improving your smile.
It may take a few days to get used to the feel of your new smile, but other than that, there is little to no recovery time from dental veneers. You will be able to treat them just like your normal teeth. Other than brushing and flossing as you normally would, there are no special maintenance requirements for veneers. Just take good care of your new smile!
Life is too short to be nervous about smiling freely. The doctors at Vista Hills Family Dental love making a positive difference in the El Paso community through their transformational dental work. If you’re ready to start smiling again, schedule your consultation for dental veneers today.
What should I expect during my Dental Veneer treatment?
During your consultation, your dentist will go over the plan to create and apply your veneers. Depending on the severity of your condition and the types of veneers your choose, it may take more than one visit to fully complete your smile transformation.
During your procedure, our dentists will carefully pre-treat each tooth to give the veneer a place to attach by removing a small patch of enamel. They will then fix the veneer to the tooth, ensuring a natural-looking result. Once your dentist places your veneers, you will get the chance to explore your bite and correct any issues before you leave the office.
You should experience little to no pain during your procedure. Our dentists are skillful and gentle and know how to place veneers in a way that avoids irritation. You may notice a little soreness in the gums or jaw for a day or two after your procedure, but most patients find it easily treatable with over-the-counter pain relievers.
Dental veneers are an elective cosmetic procedure and not covered by dental insurance.
