Perfect Your Smile with Jacksonville Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are a simple and affordable way to improve the look of your teeth. If cracks, stains or crooked teeth are making you self-conscious about your smile, porcelain veneers can be the ideal solution to the problem. Dental veneers from the Jacksonville office of Caven Dental are a simple and pain free way to improve the look of teeth.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Teeth veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that can be cemented to the surface of your tooth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used as a simple solution for small issues that make a big impact in the overall look of your smile, such as chips, discolorations, misshapen teeth, unevenly spaced teeth or crooked teeth. Since tooth veneers are a pain free process, little to no anesthesia is needed. Veneers are highly resistant to permanent stains that can come from regular consumption of coffee, tea, soda or cigarettes.
The Process of Getting Veneers in Jacksonville
The process of getting dental veneers usually requires three appointments. At the first appointment, your teeth will be prepared for the application of veneers in Jacksonville. The second visit is when the veneers will be placed on your teeth and cemented in place. Your last appointment is a follow up, during which the dentist will answer any questions you may have and ensure that the veneers meet your expectations.
First Visit: Getting Your Teeth Ready for Jacksonville Porcelain Veneers
During the first visit, which typically lasts one to two hours, your teeth are prepared to have the veneers bonded to them. The front surface of the teeth are lightly buffed. This is generally pain free however some patients prefer a local anesthetic during this part of the process. Once this is done, a mold is taken of the teeth. This mold is then sent out to the laboratory so your veneers can be custom made.
Second Visit: Placing and Bonding the Jacksonville Dental Veneers
During the next visit, the veneers are placed on the surface of the tooth. The dentist will then check to ensure the veneers fit properly and are the right shade to allow them to blend in with your natural teeth. To apply the veneer, the tooth is cleansed with specific chemicals and cement is applied. Once the special cement is in place, a light beam is applied to harden the cement.
Final Visit: Ensuring You Are Satisfied with your Jacksonville Veneers
During the two weeks following your second appointment, you may notice a change to the size and shape of your teeth. After one or two weeks, you`ll return for your follow-up appointment. At this appointment, the dentist will ensure that you are happy with the look and size of your new veneers in Jacksonville, and address any questions or concerns you may have.
