Porcelain Veneers Overview
A fast method to makeover your smile and conceal chipped, crooked, stained, or decayed teeth are with custom porcelain veneers from Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Cosmetic veneers are thin shell-like restorations created out of high-grade porcelain that is bonded to the front of the teeth to enhance the look of your smile. Offering customized and minimal-prep veneers, talented dentists Dr. Richard Caron and Dr. John Kenney can help improve the color, size, shape, or length of teeth that show when you smile. Make an appointment at our Tupelo, MS office today to find out more about natural-looking porcelain veneers and decide if they are ideal for meeting your cosmetic dental needs.
Best Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic veneers can be used to quickly mask chips and cracks, improve the color of your teeth, improve misaligned or worn down teeth, and fix teeth that are poorly spaced or shaped. At Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, your porcelain veneers will be custom made to fit snugly over your teeth for an attractive and natural look. During your consultation, doctors Caron or Kenney will listen to your goals and concerns so that our team can customize your treatment. We will also provide a thorough exam to see whether you are a good candidate for cosmetic veneers by checking your overall oral health. Porcelain veneers may not be ideal if you have signs of gum disease or routinely grind your teeth and clench your jaw.
What To Expect with Porcelain Veneers
To help you gain an idea of what your new smile will look like with custom veneers, our team uses an advanced imaging software program and custom wax-ups to generate a realistic model of your projected smile. We can even create a wearable mockup of your new veneers to help you further realize if veneers are right for you. Once we have decided upon your unique treatment plan, we will begin your procedure by removing a thin layer of enamel to allow each veneer to sit evenly within your smile. Digital impressions of your teeth will be taken, from which your veneers will be crafted out of the highest-quality porcelain. When your veneers are ready, doctors Caron or Kenney will bond the veneers in place with a strong cement and polish your new restorations for a smooth and lustrous finish.
Porcelain Veneers Recovery
Since getting cosmetic veneers normally does not require much anesthesia, you should be able to resume your daily activities after your appointment. You might experience sensitivity to cold and hot food for a few days, but that should subside naturally. Veneers should be cleaned just like your own natural teeth with a thorough daily flossing and brushing routine. While cosmetic veneers are stain-resistant, you should still avoid staining foods and drinks to keep your smile white. To avoid chipping your veneers, you should not chew on hard objects, like ice or your fingernails. We recommend that you keep up with routine dental examinations and cleanings at Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry so that we can monitor the condition of your cosmetic veneers, teeth, and general oral health. When they receive excellent care and attention, porcelain veneers can enhance the smile for up to ten years or longer.
