About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can restore a stunning smile by covering certain concerns, such as cracks, stains, chips, small gaps, and other issues. Thin, made-to-order covers that are fixed over the front surface of the patient’s teeth, dental veneers create a natural, good-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are durable, but still thin enough to be not obvious, which helps the porcelain veneers to blend with the normal appearance of the teeth. Getting dental veneers created by our dentists at DentalWorks - Polaris in Columbus, OH is a efficient, easy way to hide assorted physical flaws and make a restored, luminous smile.
What to Expect
To start off the process of constructing the personalized dental veneers our dentists has to make room for the dental veneer by removing a thin layer of dental enamel from each tooth that will be hidden to the dental veneer. Once the teeth have been prepared, our dentists will make a digital impression of the teeth that will be used to construct the custom dental veneers in a dental laboratory. A temporary veneer can be used to protect the teeth until the final dental veneers are returned to DentalWorks - Polaris in Columbus, OH. The custom dental veneers will be fixed to the front surface of the teeth with a dental bonding agent. Our dentists will adjust the dental veneers as needed to provide the patient a snug and comfortable fit.
A follow-up appointment is usually arranged for about 5 - 7 days after the dental veneers are placed to ensure the attachment is secure and the fit is still comfortable. Porcelain veneers are more resilient against staining than the natural enamel, but to keep the dental veneers in their pristine condition, our dentists advise avoiding staining foods and drinks, like soda, coffee, tea, and red wine. Patients should start or continue to follow a good home oral care routine, including brushing the teeth each day with a non-abrasive toothpaste, regular flossing, and visiting our dentists for dental cleanings and oral exams at DentalWorks - Polaris. With good care, dental veneers can last up to 20 years.
Porcelain veneers are categorized a cosmetic service, so it is usually not covered by dental insurance. However, DentalWorks - Polaris in Columbus, OH accepts many payment options, not to mention our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Polaris can help patients with financing plans to make dental veneers more affordable.
