One fast method to make over your smile and conceal crooked, chipped, stained, or decayed teeth is using porcelain veneers at Implant & General Dentistry. Cosmetic veneers are thin covers created with porcelain, which are secured to the front of the teeth to enhance the appearance of your smile. Offering personalized veneers and minimal prep, this cosmetic procedure will aid in improving the size, color, length, and/or shape of your teeth. Make a consultation with Andrew Flipse, D.M.D. at our Murfreesboro, TN office to find out more information about veneers and decide if they're appropriate for your goals.
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 Implant & General Dentistry, your veneers will be custom created to fit snugly over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. During your consultation, Dr. Flipse will listen to your objectives and concerns so he can personalize your procedure. Dr. Flipse may also see 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
Once you've decided on your personalized treatment program with Dr. Flipse, he will take physical or digital impressions of your teeth. Your veneers may be made in our office as you wait, or your impressions could be sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be made from high-quality porcelain. As soon as your veneers are prepared, Dr. Flipse will carefully take off a little bit of enamel from your teeth. This both allows room for the porcelain veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts longer. When your porcelain veneers are secured, Dr. Flipse may make small adjustments so that your veneers fit comfortably.
Since getting cosmetic veneers typically doesn't require anesthesia, you should 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 foods 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 Implant & General Dentistry so that we can track the condition of your veneers, natural teeth, and general oral health. Dr. Flipse will tell you if your veneers need to be replaced or repaired.
Porcelain veneers are an elective treatment so they're typically not covered by dental insurance. Implant & General Dentistry does take many payment options, such as low-interest medical financing, to help make your veneers more affordable. At your consult, Dr. Flipse will personalize your treatment plan to meet your needs and budget. He will also discuss a quote for your veneers and go over all your payment options.
