The Process Of Getting Veneers

Veneers are a great solution for anyone that is not happy with how their teeth look. Some patients may have chipped teeth, others might have discolored teeth or a smile that is affected by cracks or misalignment. All of these issues can be corrected by simply getting veneers.

While this treatment might be expensive in the United States and Canada, patients can save up to 70% on the cost of their treatment south of the border. What’s more, you can expect the very same high standard of treatment that you would back home as the dental facilities, clinics, and dentists are as good as anywhere in the world.

What Exactly Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They are made from porcelain or composite resin, and they can be used to correct a number of cosmetic dental problems. This treatment is an alternative to braces for people who want to improve the appearance of their smile without undergoing extensive dental treatment.

Getting veneers is an ideal solution for people with chipped, cracked, discolored, misaligned, or worn teeth. They are also suitable for people with gaps in their teeth.

The Process Of Getting Veneers

Consultation 

The first step to getting veneers is having a consultation with your dentist who will examine your teeth to ensure you are a suitable candidate. Impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to the lab so that your veneers can be made to your specific requirements.

Second Appointment 

After your veneers have been made, you will need to visit the dentist again for a second appointment. During this visit, the dentist will start by cleaning all of your teeth thoroughly and then they will start to roughen the surfaces of your teeth to make it easier for your new veneers to stick properly. Using a bonding agent, the dentist will then attach your veneers. A special light will be used to harden the bonding agent and finally, your teeth will be trimmed and shaped as required to ensure the most natural finish possible.

Post-Procedure Care 

After your veneers have been fitted, you will likely have a follow-up appointment with your dentist to make sure everything is in place and that you are comfortable and happy with the outcome. You will need to follow a strict oral hygiene routine, brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing them once to ensure they remain plaque and bacteria-free. With veneers, it’s wise to avoid things that could damage the veneers such as eating hard candy, chewing on ice, or biting your nails. With the right attention and care, you can be sure that your new smile will last for many amazing years to come.
