About Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic enhancement with porcelain veneers can restore a gorgeous smile by covering certain visible flaws, such as cracks, stains, chips, small gaps, and more concerns. Thin, specially made shells that are bonded over the front enamel of the patient’s teeth, dental veneers create a natural, good-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are substantial, however still thin enough to be inconspicuous, which helps the porcelain veneers to blend in with the natural teeth. Having dental veneers created by our dentists at DentalWorks - Westmoreland in Greensburg, PA is a efficient, easy way to cover up different physical flaws and make a restored, dazzling smile.
What to Expect
To start out the procedure of manufacturing the personalized dental veneers our dentists will need to make space for the dental veneer by removing a thin layer of enamel from every tooth that is going to be masked to the dental veneer. Once the teeth have been prepared, our dentists will take a digital image of the teeth, which will be used to manufacture the custom dental veneers in a dental laboratory. A temporary veneer can be used to protect the teeth until the final dental veneers are returned to DentalWorks - Westmoreland in Greensburg, PA. The custom dental veneers will be affixed to the front of the teeth using a dental bonding agent. Our dentists will modify the dental veneers if needed to give the patient a secure and comfortable fit.
A follow-up appointment is usually planned for about 5 - 7 days after the dental veneers are placed to ensure the attachment is secure and the fit is still comfortable. Dental veneers are more resistant to staining than the natural teeth, but to keep the dental veneers in their pristine condition, our dentists advise avoiding staining foods and drinks, like tea, soda, coffee, and red wine. Patients should start or continue to follow a good home dental care routine, including brushing the teeth daily using a non-abrasive toothpaste, regular flossing, and visiting our dentists for dental cleanings and oral exams at DentalWorks - Westmoreland. With good care, dental veneers may last up to 20 years.
Dental veneers are categorized a cosmetic service, so it is usually not covered by dental insurance. However, DentalWorks - Westmoreland in Greensburg, PA takes many payment options, not to mention our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Westmoreland can help patients with financing plans to make dental veneers more affordable.
