What you need to know about dental veneers

Has your confidence dropped because of any of the following dental issues?

  • Stained teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • A large gap between your teeth

Visiting a dentist in Fort McMurray for cosmetic reasons such as the ones mentioned above will help get you smiling again. You want your teeth to look beautiful and function correctly. Getting veneers is a solution to your dental concerns and might be just the thing you are looking for. A dentist in Fort McMurray can assess your oral cavity to determine if you are a good candidate for this type of treatment.

What are dental veneers?

An extremely thin custom-made shell generally constructed of porcelain that is placed on top of your existing tooth or teeth.

Besides fixing your dental problem, what are the other benefits of veneers?

· Natural-looking
· Strengthens your tooth/teeth
· Resists decay and staining better than your natural teeth

So, have you considered getting veneers at your dental clinic in Fort McMurray? Here are a few answers to your questions about this type of dental treatment.

How do you maintain your dental veneers?

Keeping your dental veneers clean requires the same process as cleaning your natural teeth. All you have to do is brush twice a day and floss regularly. You should also visit your dentist in Fort McMurray for regular check-ups to ensure your oral cavity remains healthy.

Is it painful to get veneers?

Veneers are one of the least invasive dental restoration procedures. You will likely not feel any pain during this type of cosmetic treatment, therefore, require little to no anesthesia.

What is the process of getting dental veneers?

The dentist will examine your teeth to determine if veneers are recommended. In a subsequent appointment, approximately ½ a millimetre will be removed off the front of the tooth or teeth being treated. The veneer overlay is then put in place, adhering to your tooth with special cement. Your dentist will adjust the shape and size of the veneer during the procedure to ensure it properly forms to your natural tooth.

Can everyone get dental veneers?

Veneers are not an option for every person because this type of cosmetic dentistry requires a healthy oral cavity. If your dentist notices too much decay or other health concerns, you may not be a good candidate for veneers. Not to worry as there are other cosmetic options such as teeth whitening, bone grafting, and gum contouring available to give you an aesthetically pleasing smile. Your dentist might suggest crowns or dental bonding depending on your situation.

Veneers are a permanent procedure that your dentist in Fort McMurray can complete if you qualify. If you are thinking of getting veneers for yourself or a family member, check with your dentist at your next appointment to see if this is a good solution for your dental concerns.
