What Are The Procedures Of Replacing Veneers?

Posted on 2/21/2022 by Thomas Plunkett DMD
What Are The Procedures Of Replacing Veneers?Veneers are an easy way to change the look of your smile. While veneers can improve the appearance of your smile, it's important to understand how replacing veneers works in order to determine if it's right for you. If you have dental insurance, there may be financial assistance available to help cover your costs, so it's important to discuss your options with an experienced dentist who can advise you on whether you qualify.

What are my choices for treatment?

Dental veneers can provide you with beautiful, permanent results for damaged teeth. You may be surprised to learn that there are a few different options when it comes to treatment. Which is right for you? Your dentist will be able to guide you through your choices, but it all depends on what's causing your tooth damage and how much time and money you want to invest in treatment.

What materials are used for new veneer?

Generally, there are two types of materials used to make veneers: porcelain and composite. Porcelain is a more expensive material, but is often considered more aesthetically pleasing because it can be fabricated in virtually any color and has natural translucency. Composite veneers have a stronger bond to existing teeth than porcelain veneers do; however, they don't look quite as lifelike when compared to porcelain veneers.

How to prepare new veneers.

Before heading to your dentist's office, it's a good idea to do some research and figure out what kind of veneer you want. If you have healthy teeth that aren't too stained or damaged, porcelain veneers are great choice. Porcelain veneers can be used to cover anything from minor stains or chips in your teeth all the way up to major damage like gingivitis and missing teeth.

How will I feel after procedure and healing has happened?

Veneers typically feel like normal teeth, so you shouldn't experience any sensitivity or pain after treatment. That said if your discomfort does continue after you get your new veneers, it could be a sign that something is wrong with your teeth or gums. It's important to bring up any concerns with your dentist as soon as possible.
