Do you have tooth stains that don’t respond to teeth whitening treatment? Are shortened or crooked teeth impacting the look of your smile? Veneers are cosmetic dental treatments that address discolored teeth, tooth gaps, shortened teeth, and even misshapen or crooked teeth. Dental veneers are thin, shell-like treatments that we bond to the front of teeth to improve the shape and shade of the smile. At Dental Health Group, we provide porcelain veneers for Colmar, PA patients who want to treat one or all of their teeth that show when they smile for brighter, better-aligned bites.
Treatment with Porcelain Veneers in Colmar, PA
To begin treatment with dental veneers, we first clean teeth and etch the enamel to prepare the teeth for the veneers. Preparing the teeth by removing a small layer of tooth enamel ensures that the veneer adheres properly. We will take dental impressions and color-match the teeth to ensure the veneers have a custom fit and match adjacent teeth. Then, we send these impressions to a ceramicist, who will create the custom veneers from high-quality, reflective porcelain ceramic materials.
We will provide you with temporary veneers as the permanent veneers are crafted. Once the final veneers are complete, we will check the shape and shade of the veneers. Then, we apply bonding material to the tooth and place the veneers. We ensure the veneers blend in with adjacent teeth as needed and brighten the smile’s appearance.
Porcelain Veneer Q&A
Do you want to know more about dental veneer treatment? Discover answers to common questions patients have about veneers:
How much are dental veneers?
The cost of dental veneers can vary depending on the number of veneers and types of materials used. During a consultation, we will discuss the cost of your veneers based on your specific needs.
Are dental veneers permanent?
Many patients may see veneers as permanent because they require tooth preparation to cover their teeth with veneers. This preparation means that patients must be committed to protecting their teeth with treatments like dental veneers. Dental veneers can last ten or more years with the proper care.
How do you care for porcelain veneers?
Patients can clean their porcelain veneers like natural teeth. We recommend that patients brush the veneers and teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and avoid abrasive toothpaste ingredients. Ingredients like charcoal or hydrated silica can damage the veneers. After patients receive their veneers, they should avoid hard or crunchy foods. Gradually, they can introduce these foods and foods or drinks that typically stain the teeth, including coffee, berries, and tea.
