What is the process for dental veneers?
An initial exam is needed to begin the process. The examination includes teeth evaluation, x-rays, mouth and teeth impressions. To assure your veneers will fit comfortably, your dentist will remove 1/2 millimeter of enamel. New impressions are made and sent to a laboratory to create the veneers.
Once your veneers arrive, additional trimming may be needed to assure they fit correctly. Once the veneer is ready for application, a special cement is used for bonding. A light beam then cures and hardens the cement. You may be asked to follow-up a few days later to evaluate how your mouth is responding to the veneers.
Is there special maintenance involved?
Dental veneers can be treated as natural teeth. They can last 7 to 15 years depending on regular brushing, flossing and dental cleanings. Avoid foods and drinks that stain. Also, protect your veneers by avoiding hard food and candy.
