Porcelain Veneers and You
Before scheduling your treatment for porcelain veneers, your Naples dentist will want to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough to support this cosmetic dentistry procedure. We’ll check to make sure your teeth are free from decay and that your gums are healthy and don’t show signs of periodontal disease. A well-aligned bite and no signs of teeth grinding or clenching are also important qualifications for porcelain veneers.
Receiving Your New Smile with Porcelain Veneers
The treatment process is simple. You’ll need to schedule two appointments with your dentist in Naples that are a couple of weeks apart. During your first visit to our Naples office, we will remove a small amount of natural enamel from the front of your smile to accommodate the placement of your veneers. This phase of treatment is irreversible once it’s complete, but is important to ensure the proper and comfortable fit of your porcelain veneers.
Then, we’ll take a molded impression of your prepared teeth that we will use to fabricate temporary acrylic veneers in our office. We will then attach this set of temporary veneers to protect your teeth and introduce you to what your new smile will be like. The impressions are also sent to our cosmetic dentist lab where a skilled ceramist will hand craft your permanent veneers. When your veneers are complete, you’ll return to our office to have your temporaries removed and your new ones attached.
Caring for your Smile with Veneers
With your veneers in place, you may not be able to see the hidden teeth but they require the same oral hygiene care as always. And, of course, you’ll need to care for your veneers, too, so they remain strong and beautiful.
Therefore, brush you teeth every day with fluoride toothpaste and floss in between teeth to remove food particles and plaque from between your teeth. Bacterial plaque tends to accumulate along the edge of your porcelain veneers that abut the gum line. Therefore, be sure to pay particularly close attention to these spots.
In addition, while your new veneers are quite tough, they are not unbreakable. Try to avoid biting hard objects such as nuts, hard candy, raw carrots, fingernails and pens with your veneers.
Prior to beginning your treatment, our team will be happy to sit down with you for a cosmetic consultation. During your consultation, we will work with you to determine the best solution for your smile. Contactour Naples, FL dental office today to schedule your first appointment.
