Are you looking for a smile transformation in Carlow? Contact us today.

Any number of situations can alter the appearance of our teeth, or cause damage to the enamel of our teeth. A bike accident could result in a chipped tooth, or the use of certain antibiotics could result in staining on the surface of the tooth.

Even habits that include chewing ice or smoking can result in some permanent damage to the tooth’s enamel surface. Porcelain veneers can be used to restore the shape colour, length, and size of your teeth. They can instantly impose a much more cohesive look to your smile.

Learn why is it worth it

An understanding of porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry solution that can instantly alter the look of your teeth. Dental veneers are wafer thin layers of resin or ceramic. These ultra-thin shells are bonded to the front of any teeth that don’t offer the aesthetic appeal that you are looking for.

With dental veneers you can transform a tooth that is damaged, chipped, or even smaller than the surrounding teeth, into a more cohesive appearance.

Patients walk out of treatment with restored smiles that look completely natural, healthy, and beautiful.

  • Who is a good candidate for dental veneers?

    Any patients who are dissatisfied with shape or color of their teeth will be good candidates for dental veneers. The wafer thin shell will ensure that the tooth’s appearance is corrected, while also maintaining the natural tooth.

    Some patients turn to veneers in order to conceal damage and staining to their teeth that has been caused by certain medications. Chips, broken teeth, and teeth with craters can make use of veneers in order to restore an even and smooth shape to the tooth.

    Porcelain veneers can also be used to correct small gaps that are between teeth, as a rapid alternative to orthodontic treatments.

    Porcelain veneers are a versatile dental solution, and they are amongst some of the most popular choices in cosmetic dental treatments.

    A major consideration, prior to getting dental veneers, is the overall health of your natural teeth and your gums. Any damage or decay to your teeth should be addressed prior to your veneers being fitted to your teeth. Cavities should be filled; root canal therapy should be completed. If there is any sign of gum disease, then it should be treated well in advance of your porcelain veneers. Remember that veneers won’t do anything to protect your teeth from advancing damage if there is already damage and decay present. It’s always best to treat any concerns, and then get your veneers affixed to healthy natural teeth.

  • Porcelain veneer placement

    Getting your porcelain veneers is a process that is most often completed in two or three visits to the office. During your initial consult, you will have the opportunity to discuss your expectations for the veneers. Your dentist will provide you with the options that you have available to you.

    The surfaces of your teeth will need to be prepared for the placement of your veneers. Models of your natural teeth will be taken. This is to ensure that your custom-made veneers will fit each of your teeth perfectly.

    The models of your teeth are sent to an off-site lab, where the veneers will be made. Once they are complete, and ready, you will return to the office for the application process.

    Each of the veneers will be skilfully set in place, and will be affixed with a strong bonding agent.

  • Is it painful to get dental veneers?

    Generally speaking, you should not experience any pain or even mild discomfort through any part of the process of getting dental veneers. If your teeth require preparation or shaping prior to the placement of the veneers, you will be given a local anesthetic to help minimize the potential for any pain. At most, you’ll experience a small pinch when the numbing agent is injected.

After care for porcelain veneers

Taking care of your new porcelain veneers will not require any additional consideration. Simply keep up with your great home oral care routine. Brush and floss your teeth after every meal, just as you would with your natural teeth.

While veneers are considered to be resistant to staining, it’s suggested that you avoid or reduce the use of common foods and drinks that can stain. These could include coffee, tea, and red wines.

Porcelain veneers are considered to be incredibly strong once they are set in place. However, patients should take care to avoid chewing ice or grinding their teeth in order to get the most out of their veneers.

Porcelain veneers offer a long-term, almost instant, solution to any number of cosmetic problems that patient may be experiencing with their teeth. You can enjoy a bright and white smile, in almost no time at all.

Ensure that you keep up with your regular dental checkups so that your dentist can ensure there is no damage to your veneers.
