Are you looking to transform your smile? Our dental veneers in Jenkintown can provide dramatic results in one just one procedure. Read on to discover the ins and outs of dental veneers and how Jenkintown Dental Medicine can help.
Dental veneers in Jenkintown can fix problems with your teeth that you are self-conscious about and want to change but cannot do through cosmetic dentistry or orthodontics. They also offer a solution for teeth that have been damaged after years of neglect.
Dental veneers can hide staining, chips, and cracks in your teeth with an ultra-thin layer that is not noticeable to anyone but you. Dentists remove enamel and dentin layers from the tooth and place a thin layer of porcelain over the remaining exposed part of your tooth.
Dental veneers are custom-made by a technician at a dental laboratory. The technician uses high-definition imaging and digital x-rays to ensure your veneers are placed in the correct locations and that the space between them is suitable.
You can have dental veneers attached to a tooth, an implant, or a temporary crown. If porcelain powder is used to create your surfaces, you can have them connected directly to your existing teeth or onto a removable bridge supported by implants.
If you have had a tooth compromised by an accident or a disease like periodontitis, you can have dental veneers attached to one or more of your healthy teeth to show that all of your teeth are just as strong and healthy.
The cost and schedule for dental veneers depend on the type of work you need to do. Porcelain dental veneers can be done in a single visit. They are more expensive than other types of cosmetic dentistry but can be cheaper than crowns.
Before veneers can be applied, the dentist needs to have your teeth prepared by filing down the teeth and removing any decay or imperfections. Once your teeth have been prepared, they will take molds and create an impression of your teeth that they will use to make the veneer. A harmful mold is created first, and then a positive copy is made and superimposed over the dangerous mold. The dental laboratory then creates a ceramic shell used to make your actual veneer.
While you don’t need to return to the office once the dentist has taken your impressions, you will need to come in again before the veneers are placed on your teeth so that your dentist can make sure the color matches and that you are satisfied with their placement. Your dentist will take an ultraviolet image of the veneers and send them off for processing.
Once they have been created, your dentist will bond them onto your teeth. This process can take a few days, depending on whether your veneers are connected to your natural teeth or your artificial ones.
