Why Choose Creating Smiles, PC for Veneers?

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells of durable dental porcelain that are shaped to fit over the front portion of your teeth. Each veneer is custom created to match the shape, size, and color of the rest of your teeth. Once veneers are placed, your teeth will appear absolutely flawless.

To prepare your teeth to receive the veneers, your cosmetic dentist in St. John will remove a tiny layer of enamel from your teeth, about the same thickness as a contact lens. This will ensure the veneers lay flat against the line of your smile. Then, we’ll take impressions of your prepped teeth, create a mold, and send it off to a dental lab, where your brand-new teeth will be designed by a skilled dental technician. In the meantime, we’ll fix you with temporaries to protect your teeth. When your permanent veneers are ready, simply return to our office and we’ll use a special cement to bond them to your teeth.

Are Veneers a Good Option for Me?

If your teeth are chipped, cracked, discolored, or oddly shaped, you might be a good candidate for veneers. They might also benefit you if you have slight gaps in between your front teeth. We do ask that patients who are seeking veneers first be free of tooth decay and gum disease, so we may have to perform fillings or gum disease treatment before we can place veneers. Ultimately, it’s up to you and Dr. Kapers to decide whether veneers are right for you. Let us know exactly which imperfections you want to correct. Thanks to our virtual smile design technology, you can see what your smile will look like with veneers in place before we even begin treatment!

Benefits of Veneers

One of the best reasons to get veneers is that they can fix multiple cosmetic flaws in just one procedure, leaving you with a perfect Hollywood smile. Another advantage is that very little tooth enamel is lost compared to some other treatments, like dental crowns, and little to no anesthesia is needed. Veneers are also highly resistant to stains from coffee, tea, and other foods and beverages that can discolor natural teeth.

How to Maintain Your Veneers

In general, you’ll want to treat your new veneers just as carefully as you would your natural teeth. Keep up with your normal oral hygiene routine, including daily brushing, flossing, and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash. Be sure to come in for regular checkups and cleanings every six months. Lastly, if you clench or grind your teeth while you sleep, consider getting a custom-made nightguard to prevent that habit from damaging your veneers.
