Dental Veneers in Swanton OH

Getting veneers is one of the most minimally invasive and effective ways to completely transform your smile or simply enhance the beautiful smile you already have. At Believe Dental Care of Swanton, we help our patients enhance their smiles with dental veneers. Our veneers are durable, long-lasting, comfortable, and look like your natural teeth.

 

Overview of Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are custom-made wafer-thin shells that cover the front surface of teeth to change the shape, color, length, or width, improving the appearance of your smile. They can be made from porcelain, ceramic, or composite resin materials. Veneers are a permanent cosmetic dental treatment because removing a small amount of enamel from your tooth is necessary to accommodate the shell. 

On average, dental veneers can last anywhere between 5–15 years before they need to be replaced. However, many can last longer depending on how well you maintain them at home through brushing and flossing along with regular dental appointments.

Veneers can be used to treat several conditions, such as: 

  • Stained teeth that will not respond to tooth whitening treatments
  • Chipped Teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Correct minor crooked teeth

Porcelain Veneer Procedure

Here’s what you can expect when you come for your dental veneer procedure at our Swanton, OH practice. 

  • Diagnosis and treatment planning: We will examine your teeth and gums during your first appointment to determine that you’re a good veneer candidate. This may involve taking X-rays of your mouth. We will discuss your expectations and the limits of the procedure. 
  • Preparation: The preparation process involves reshaping the surface of your tooth to create room for the veneer. After that, we will create a model of your tooth and then send the scans to the dental lab, where your permanent veneers will be made – the process usually takes 2-4 weeks. In the meantime, we will place temporary veneers to protect your teeth until your veneers are ready.
  • Bonding: After your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll come in for your veneers to be bonded. We’ll examine the fit and color of the veneers, repeatedly removing and trimming the veneer to achieve the proper fit. Next, we prepare your teeth to receive the veneers by cleaning, polishing, and etching your teeth. Etching roughens the tooth to allow for a strong bonding process. A special cement is then applied to the veneer before bonding it to your tooth. The final steps involve removing any excess cement, checking your bite, and making any needed adjustments.
