We all see a little something we’d like to fix about our smiles. If you’re tired of dealing with gaps, chips, or discoloration, porcelain veneers may be the right solution for you. Veneers are thin, tooth-colored casings that are applied to the front side of your teeth, providing a new, natural look.
At Mansfield Dental Center, we’ll consult with you about your goals for your smile and create a treatment plan to give you the new smile you deserve. Schedule your consultation visit today to explore the best options for dental veneers in Mansfield.
Much like putting a new exterior on a building, dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or ceramic that provide a new surface for your teeth. Using a strong adhesive, your veneers can reshape and recolor your existing teeth. Your dentist will carefully color match your veneers, ensuring the most natural looking smile possible.
A consultation with Mansfield Dental Center is the best way to decide if veneers are for you. Your dentist may suggest veneers for any of the following conditions:
The adhesive used to attach your veneers is very strong, and with proper care, they will maintain their appeal for many years to come. Regularly scheduled visits to your dentist will help extend the life of your dental veneers.
Dental veneers are carefully crafted to match your existing teeth. With the proper care, they are practically invisible as part of a radiant smile.
Creating and placing your veneers is a combination of advanced technology and years of combined experience on the part of your dental team. The cost of this procedure is reasonable when you consider the years of satisfying results. Schedule your consultation today to learn more about your custom treatment.
During your consultation visit, you and your dentist will decide on a treatment plan. This first step includes taking an impression of your teeth for the lab. Since everyone has a different goal in mind, you and your dentist will discuss your procedure in detail, from procedure to results and maintenance.
During your procedure, your dentist will remove a small portion of enamel from your teeth. It’s important to note, this enamel removal is permanent, as is the veneers process. It’s a critical step in the process, allowing your new veneer to lay flat with the rest of your dental arch.
Your dentist will place a temporary veneer using removable adhesive. These temporary placements are delicate, so treat them well. Brush gently and avoid tough foods while your permanent veneers are being crafted.
Once your veneers are ready, it’s time to return to Mansfield Dental Center for the final step in the process. Your dentist will carefully fit each veneer, checking the fit and the coloring. Once you are both satisfied, your dentist will bond the veneers to the underlying teeth, completing the treatment. Your new smile is ready for the spotlight!
Since placing veneers is a non-surgical technique, recovery should be quick and relatively pain-free. Some patients report mild discomfort from the initial enamel removal and after the bonding, but this should fade quickly. If you experience severe or lasting discomfort, contact the Mansfield Dental Center.
