By using dental veneers and dental laminates, the team at Todd R Denson DMD PA can create a perfect-looking smile. These thin dental shells are placed onto the surface of your teeth to cover dark stains, close gaps, and correct imperfections.
A veneer is a thin shell that is made out of porcelain or ceramic. The shade of the veneer, along with its shape and size will be made to match your surrounding teeth so that it blends in perfectly.
When you visit our office, Dr. Denson will take an impression of your teeth to create the veneers in a lab. The veneers will match the size, shape, and color of your teeth, taking a week or more to create.
We will first prepare your tooth by removing a portion of the enamel. This helps the veneer lay flat and in line with your gum tissue. After preparing the tooth, we will secure a temporary veneer using removable glue. While wearing a temporary veneer, it is important to brush your teeth gently and avoid eating any foods that may push it out of place. Since it is secured by removable glue, it can be moved fairly easily.
When your permanent veneers are ready Dr. Denson will remove the temporary and ensure that the new veneer is a perfect fit. It is typically attached using a water-based solution to see how it looks. If any adjustments need to be made, it will be done at this time. Otherwise, the tooth will be cleaned, and the dental veneer will be bonded to the tooth.
You will immediately see the results.
After the procedure
your teeth will typically be sore for a few days after the preparation phase and after placing the permanent veneers. During this time, you can take pain medication, rest, and use a cold compress to reduce any swelling.
We recommend you watch what you eat for a few days and stick with foods that are soft. While there is a short recovery time when getting veneers, the procedure is entirely worth it because in the end, you will have a beautiful smile.
One main benefit
of veneers is that you enjoy is how the veneers make your teeth look. Veneers can transform your smile into one that looks perfect and beautiful. Since veneers covers your natural teeth, there is no need for surgery and reduces recovery time.
Since the veneers are made to match your other teeth, they look natural and made of stain resistant material. No one will be able to tell that you had any cosmetic dentistry work done.
As with most cosmetic procedures, there can be some discomfort associated with getting dental veneers installed. The process can take several weeks so there will be a period where you need to be careful about what you eat and what activities you engage in. In other words, do not play football after getting temporary veneers placed onto your teeth. You should schedule the procedure for a time where you will be close to home and able to take easy.
At Todd R Denson DMD PA, we understand that your insurance company may or may not pay for veneers. We will work with you and your insurance company to ensure that you receive the dental care that you need, regardless of how much they are willing to pay.
