Veneers Explained

Veneers are simply a tough, but thin, cover for your teeth. They are used to mask or repair stained or damaged teeth permanently.

The veneers can be made out of different materials, such as resin, ceramic or porcelain. However, porcelain veneers are the most widely used due to their durability and their ability to mimic the natural look and feel of your original teeth.

Why Would I Need Veneers?

Veneers are a simple and long lasting solution to many different imperfections in your teeth. They can instantly improve the look and feel of your teeth. Veneers might be recommended for you if you have:

  • Cracked Teeth
  • Stained Teeth
  • Gaps Between Teeth
  • Broken Teeth
  • Worn Teeth
  • Chipped Teeth
  • Dull or Darkened Teeth

Professional veneers can renew teeth with these issues while also creating a whiter and brighter smile.

How Are Veneers Fitted to Teeth?

If you are self-conscious about your smile or are unhappy with the way your teeth look, a trusted dentist in Travelers Rest, SC can give you a new smile with veneers. There are three to four visits involved in the creation and placement of your new veneers. These will include:

1

Consultation

During your consultation, the friendly staff at Carolina Oaks Dental Care will discuss any concerns you have about your teeth. They will carefully go over your different options and work with you to create your perfect smile.
2

Preparation Visit

  • During preparation, the gentle staff will carefully remove a very thin part of your enamel.
  • A mold of your teeth will then be made so your veneers can be customized to perfectly fit your teeth.
  • In around one or two weeks, your veneers will be ready for their fitting.

The Delivery Visit

The delivery of the veneers is actually very simple and can often be done with little or no anesthetic.

  • Your teeth will be cleaned then polished.
  • Your teeth will be slightly etched to make the surface of your teeth ready for their new porcelain veneers.
  • Each individual veneer will be meticulously matched to each tooth.
  • Excess materials will be buffed or trimmed so that each veneer perfectly lines up to each tooth. This will help create a natural look and a comfortable feel for your smile.
  • A specialized cementing material is applied to bond your porcelain veneers to each tooth.
  • The dentist will then use a specifically designed light to quickly bond the cement.
  • Excess cementing materials are removed and any adjustments that are needed are made.
  • You will be given instructions on how to properly care for your veneers, which is very similar to your regular dental hygiene routine.
