Am I A Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?
In many cases, most patients are ideal candidates for porcelain veneers. In order to determine if porcelain veneers are right for you, you will need to visit our dental office for a consultation.
During your consultation, Dr. Keech will discuss your cosmetic goals and evaluate the condition of your smile to determine if porcelain veneers or another cosmetic solution best suits your needs.
Ideal candidates for dental veneers should possess the following qualities:
- Structurally healthy teeth
- Do not clench or grind their teeth
- Free of periodontal disease
- Have realistic expectations for your smile
In most cases, dental veneers are not ideal for young patients because of the amount of tooth structure that is removed from the affected tooth. In this case, we may recommend tooth bonding to address your cosmetic needs.
What Happens During The Porcelain Veneer Process?
During your consultation, Dr. Keech will perform a dental exam, evaluate your smile, and discuss your cosmetic goals. Dr. Keech will work with you to build a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs. Before we begin your appointment, we will discuss all aspects of your treatment plan such as cost, timeline, and aftercare instructions.
To create your ideal smile, Dr. Keech will work with you to design veneers that meet your cosmetic goals. Your veneers are color matched to ensure they blend seamlessly with your existing teeth.
The next step is to prepare your teeth. Dr. Keech will gently remove a small amount of enamel from the affected teeth. This creates an adequate bonding surface for your new veneers. After the teeth are prepared, we will take impressions of your teeth which will be used for the fabrication of your dental veneers.
In some cases, we will place a temporary veneer to protect your teeth while you wait for your final veneers. Once your final veneers are ready, we will remove the temporary veneers and carefully place your custom dental veneers.
Dr. Keech will make any adjustments to your veneers to ensure a natural looking and high-quality result.
