How Are Dental Veneers Applied?

The procedure begins with a dental exam conducted by Dr. Castle. She will need to assess the type of defect or extent of damage to your tooth or teeth, and if there’s sufficient structure to which the veneers can be bonded.

Dr. Castle will need to prepare the tooth for the veneer by grinding down a bit of the enamel so there’s room on the tooth for the veneer. After this, Dr. Castle will take an impression of your tooth/teeth which will be used by a lab to create a model that can be used in constructing the veneers. The veneer’s size, shape and color will be customized according to the patient’s needs.

Once the veneers are ready, the patient will be asked to return to Brighter Days Dental. Before bonding the porcelain veneers to the front of the teeth, Dr. Castle will first “roughen up” the surface of the teeth to ensure the adhesive bonding strength of the veneers and the adhesive used. After it has been bonded, Dr. Castle may still need to perform some minor adjustments to make sure that the porcelain veneers look natural and blend flawlessly with the other teeth.

Is It Difficult To Care For My Dental Veneers?

It is not difficult to care for your porcelain veneers. You only have to be faithful in properly taking care of your teeth. This includes brushing your teeth with a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste and flossing your teeth at least twice a day. You may need to also avoid eating hard foods as they may cause your veneers to chip or crack.

It is also advisable to visit Brighter Days Dental at least twice a year for a routine check-up. This way, Dr. Castle can check and monitor your porcelain veneers and perform any minor corrections to address any dental problems that may affect their appearance and position like bruxism. Dr. Castle can also polish your porcelain veneers to refresh them from time to time to preserve their natural-looking radiance.
