What Are Veneers?

/

Porcelain veneers are a popular option for concealing minor cosmetic flaws. They are a thin ceramic shell that goes over a shaved natural tooth. Veneers can restore one tooth or several depending on your needs. Because they are made of natural-looking materials like porcelain, custom color-matched veneers can effectively mimic your natural tooth enamel.

If You Have the Following Qualities you may be a good candidate for veneers

Good Oral Health

Candidates for porcelain veneers must be in good dental health to ensure a strong foundation for long-term results. They should also be committed to practicing proper oral hygiene for healthy teeth and gums.

Healthy Tooth Structure

In order to place veneers, patients should also have adequate healthy tooth structure to support the porcelain shells. During your consultation at our Laurel dental practice, one of our dentists will determine if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

No History of Tooth Grinding

While veneers are fairly durable, regular grinding can eventually lead to cracks or breakage. Fortunately, if you routinely grind your teeth, our dental practice can help with with TMJ treatment, such as a fitted mouth guard.

The Benefits of Dental Veneers

Improved
Self-Esteem

Many of our Laurel dental patients report that porcelain veneers help them feel more confident about their appearance. That's reason enough to consider veneers.

Preserved Natural Teeth

When shaping a tooth for veneers, dentists will ensure that they preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible. This is not the case for other treatment options.

Less Involved Treatment

Veneers are minimally invasive, affecting only a little tooth enamel and not impacting your gum tissue. Placing veneers requires little recovery time with few symptoms.

Consultation

You will first meet with our dentists, Dr. Harris and Dr. Culpepper, to discuss your smile goals and candidacy. If you choose veneers as your cosmetic dentistry option, then we will happily schedule your next visits. Traditional porcelain veneers are typically placed in two appointments at our Laurel, MS, dental practice.

Preparation

During this visit, one of our dentists will prepare your tooth. This straightforward procedure involves removing some of the enamel on your tooth with a special drill. Local anesthesia will be administered to ensure that you are comfortable throughout this procedure. Once your teeth are prepped, a mold can be taken of your mouth and you will be given temporary veneers.

Placement

Once your permanent veneers are fabricated, a second visit to our office will be scheduled. During this second and final visit, one of our doctors will ensure that the porcelain veneers are a perfect fit before attaching them with a strong cement. Any minor adjustments can be made at this time.

How Long Will It Take To Adjust to My Dental Veneers?

Many patients report that it takes a few days or even weeks to adjust to the new veneers.

Typically patients notice that their teeth feel a little sensitivity. There is rarely any tooth pain. If you notice any slight discomfort, your dentist can give you advice about over-the-counter pain relief.

You can also reduce the risk of damaging your new smile by maintaining good oral hygiene habits and scheduling regular check-ups at our office.

Another Look at Veneers

A veneer is a porcelain shell designed to look just like your natural enamel. After one of our dentists subtly shaves down your tooth, they will secure a veneer over it, creating a stunning new smile.
