Best Candidates for Veneers
Veneers may be used to rapidly cover stains and chips in your teeth, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are abnormally spaced or shaped. At Robert L. Porter Dentistry, your veneers will be custom created to fit snugly over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. During your consultation, Dr. Porter will listen to your objectives and concerns so he can personalize your procedure. Dr. Porter may also evaluate whether you're a good candidate for veneers by assessing the total health of your mouth. You shouldn't have symptoms of gum disease, or routinely grind your teeth and clench your jaw.
What To Expect from Veneers
Once you've decided on your personalized treatment program with Dr. Porter, he will prepare the teeth to receive veneers, then take physical or digital dental impressions. Your veneers may be made in our office, or your impressions could be sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be made from high-quality materials. After the veneer fabrication process is complete, the veneers can then be bonded to the tooth. When your porcelain veneers are secured, Dr. Porter may make small adjustments so that your veneers fit comfortably.
Recovery from Veneers
You ought to be able to resume your daily tasks following your appointment. You might experience sensitivity to cold and hot meals for a couple of days, but that should fade away. Veneers should be cared for just like your own natural teeth with daily flossing and brushing. While cosmetic veneers are stain resistant compared to the natural teeth, you still need to stay away from staining drinks and food to keep your veneers white. To prevent damaging your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, like your fingernails or ice. Continue to schedule dental examinations and cleanings at Robert L. Porter Dentistry so that we can track the condition of your veneers, natural teeth, and general oral health. Dr. Porter will tell you if your veneers need to be replaced or repaired.
Insurance Coverage for Veneers
Cosmetic veneers are an elective treatment, so they're typically not covered by dental insurance. Robert L. Porter Dentistry does take many payment options, such as low-interest dental financing, to help make your veneers more affordable. At your consultation, Dr. Porter will personalize your treatment plan to meet your needs and budget.
