This lifelike material creates a natural looking smile.
Veneers are thin pieces of ceramic used to reconstruct the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and flexibility comparable to natural tooth surface. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.
Consult Marze Dental
Visiting Marze Dental in Sherman TX and inquiring about veneers is the first step in defining if they are the best and correct option for you, or if there are substitutes available. Communication with Dr. Marze about what you want fixed is vital for a successful dental procedure result. Spend time clearly ascertaining what cosmetic dental improvements you want to undertake.
You’ll often hear people say that superstars have veneers and this may seem like the best way to imitate picture-perfect smile, but each mouth is different and veneers need to be carefully examined.
Dr. Brawley Marze will most likely begin with a denture analysis to determine what steps are necessary to achieve the smile you aspire. In addition, Dentist Brawley Marze, Jr., DDS may create a diagnostic mock-up that will allow you to use “temporary” veneers and other dental procedures to see if the end result is actually what you’re looking for.
Since a veneer are independently carved for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the variance between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech dental materials.
With veneers, your natural teeth remain mostly unharmed with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer.
For teeth that resist whitening, veneers can make even the dimmest teeth appear bright white.
They can also be recommended to quickly fix minor twists, overlaps, and small gaps.
Maintenance is really very simple: Treat them as you would your natural teeth, with routine brushing and flossing. Using non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste will typically be advised.
A week after your veneer is positioned, you return to Marze Dental for a follow-up visit and evaluation so Dr. Marze can see how your teeth are reacting to the veneers. Even if you feel the veneers are a success, this appointment is important to your future oral health.
If you have a habit of grating or tightening your teeth, Dr. Marze may advice that he fit a nighttime bite guard so you do not damage your veneers.
You should also return to Marze Dental for regular professional maintenance because porcelain veneers should be polished with a specially formulated, non-abrasive paste, and because your dentist needs to inspect your dentistry for any sign of potential failure.
Because a small portion of the original tooth enamel is reduced, a veneer is not considered a rescindable treatment. Although adjustments and even new veneers can be made, you can never steadfastly return to the original condition of the tooth.
Creating a porcelain veneer requires some dental lab time, so expect at least a week before they’re ready to be applied.
After the they are applied, you will probably have some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures due to the removal of that thin layer of enamel. This typically fades within a few days. In a healthy mouth properly treated—and where destructive forces are minimized or eliminated—you should be able to use a porcelain veneer like your own teeth. Although they’re very strong, they are also fragile. You should avoid the same excessive stress you would avoid with non-veneered teeth: don’t bite your fingernails, chew ice, or open beer bottles with your veneers!
