A dental veneer is a porcelain shell that dental professionals can customize to enhance the size, shape, and shade of a tooth. Dental veneers are a commonly offered dental restoration at Holger Dental Group.

If you have chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth and want to change them, then dental veneers may be the solution you are looking for. Dental veneers can blend in with your surrounding teeth with a thin porcelain shell for a uniform appearance. While altering the size, shape, and shade of your teeth, we can also prevent further damage to the tooth’s surface.

Far too often, people will try to avoid seeking professional dental treatment and live with damaged or crooked teeth. By avoiding treatment, people only increase the chance of pain or infection. A chipped tooth can risk exposing the inside of the tooth, causing pain when eating, drinking, or biting down on something.

By investing in a dental veneer treatment, we can help you change your teeth’ size, shape, and shade for your specific needs.

What is a Dental Veneer?

A veneer is a thin shell made out of porcelain or ceramic. The shade of the veneer, along with its shape and size, will be made to match your surrounding teeth so that it blends in perfectly.

How is a Dental Veneer Used?

We can accomplish a variety of things using dental veneers. By placing veneers on top of the teeth, we can close gaps, make teeth even in length, cover dark stains and create a uniform-looking smile. In this way, veneers can create a smile that rivals the most famous Hollywood stars. The nice thing is that you do not have to be famous to improve your smile. You simply need to call us and schedule an appointment to see Dr. Holger, Dr. Akradi.

We also use dental veneers for restorations. When teeth become cracked, chipped, or broken, a veneer can restore the tooth to its full functionality. As long as the tooth structure is intact, we can restore the appearance of a tooth while making it possible to eat and speak without feeling any discomfort.

The Procedure

When patients visit our dentist’s office, we will take an impression of their teeth to create the veneers in a lab. The veneers will match your teeth’ size, shape, and color, taking a week or more to create.

To place dental veneers, we will first prepare your tooth by removing a portion of the enamel. This helps the veneer lay flat and in line with your gum tissue. After preparing the tooth, we will secure a temporary veneer using removable glue. While wearing a temporary veneer, it is important to brush your teeth gently and avoid eating any foods that may push them out of place. Since it is secured by removable glue, it can easily be moved.

When your permanent veneers are ready, you will come back into our Holger Dental Group offices so that we can remove the temporary and ensure that the new veneer is a perfect fit. It is typically attached using a water-based solution to see how it looks.

If any adjustments need to be made, they will be done at this time. Otherwise, the tooth will be cleaned, and the dental veneer will be bonded to the tooth. Patients will enjoy how the results look. They are instant, and you can start flashing your smile right away.

After the Procedure

Your teeth will typically be sore for a few days after the preparation phase and after placing the permanent veneers. You can take pain medication to help you stay comfortable during this time. Patients can also benefit from getting rest and using a cold compress to reduce any swelling. We recommend that patients watch what they eat for a few days and stick with soft foods. While there is a short recovery time when getting veneers, the procedure is entirely worth it because, in the end, you will have a beautiful smile.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

One main benefit of veneers that patients enjoy is how the veneers make their teeth look. This procedure is an excellent solution since the veneers can transform your smile into one that looks perfect and beautiful.

The veneer uses your natural teeth, so there is no need for surgery, and the recovery time is reduced. Since the veneers are made to match your other teeth, they will look natural, and no one will be able to tell that you had any cosmetic dentistry work completed.

Another benefit is that they are made out of a stain-resistant material. This means that your teeth will stay whiter and brighter, even if your favorite beverage is a hot cup of coffee. We can use dental veneers to transform your smile.

The Downside

As with most cosmetic procedures, some discomfort can be associated with getting dental veneers installed. This is expected; however, we do our best to keep patients comfortable during the procedure so that you will not experience any pain while the veneers are being placed or your teeth are being prepared.

The process can take several weeks, so there will be a period where you need to be careful about what you eat and what activities you engage in. In other words, do not play football after getting temporary veneers placed onto your teeth.

You should schedule the procedure for a time where you will be close to home and able to take it easy.
