What Exactly Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are incredibly thin, tooth-shaped shells that are attached to the front of your teeth. Built of porcelain and ceramic, veneers are a simple approach to improve the form and function of your teeth.

They accomplish this by:

·         Getting rid of dark spots

·         Concealing chips and small cracks

·         Filling in the gaps between teeth

·         Lengthening teeth to achieve a consistent, even grin

Dr. Shouhed and the Smile Perfector Dental Group staff tailor your veneers to the form, size, and tint of your natural teeth, resulting in a fully natural appearance.

What is the Procedure for Placing Veneers?

Veneer placement is a simple procedure that typically takes around a week to complete. During your initial appointment, your Smile Perfector Dental Group provider captures an impression of your teeth to submit to the dental laboratory.

After that, Dr. Shouhed sets your teeth for receiving the veneers by removing a little layer of enamel from every tooth you would like to improve. This procedure guarantees that the veneers will be in line with the rest of your gum tissue and teeth.

Until your dental veneers are ready, Dr. Shouhed safeguards your teeth with provisional veneers held in position by removable glue. In about a week, your custom-made, permanent veneers will be available for placement.

When you return for your permanent veneers, Dr. Shouhed carefully removes your temporary veneers and then fits your permanent veneers with a water-based attaching solution. If there is a need to adjust or reshape the veneers in any manner, he does it at that time.

Once your veneers are flawless, Dr. Shouhed cleans, etches, and polishes your teeth. Finally, he fits your permanent veneers and attaches them to your teeth.

Is There Any Downtime Required Once You Obtain Veneers?

Veneers have a fairly quick healing time. Anticipate your teeth to be uncomfortable for several days after Dr. Shouhed sets them for veneers. Your teeth will also be uncomfortable and sensitive for several days after you depart Smile Perfector Dental Group with your permanent veneers in position.

To help you feel better, you could use over-the-counter pain relievers. Apply a cold compress to minimize inflammation. Lastly, whilst your teeth are still sensitive, consume only soft, non-sticky foods.

If you are dealing with teeth that are significantly stained, discolored, or otherwise unattractive, veneers are a simple and long-lasting way to get a stunning smile. To determine if you are the right fit for veneers, arrange an appointment with Dr. Shouhed at Smile Perfector Dental Group.
