Permanent Veneers Improve the Look and Function of Your Teeth in a Dramatic Way!
Porcelain veneers are a popular choice for patients looking to improve the look and feel of their teeth. Beyond aesthetics, veneers help shape the mouth and provide the foundation for a beautiful and healthy smile.
No longer thought to be just cosmetic, porcelain veneers can help patients feel confident in their speech, facial shape, and durability of their teeth. Whether patients need a veneer on one tooth or all of them, the cosmetic dentist in Puyallup WA at SK Family Dental can help make your smile shine brightly and beautifully for the world to enjoy.
Why Should Patients Consider Veneers in Puyallup, WA?
Veneers provide much more than just a beautiful smile. If you suffer from cracked, broken, discolored, or chipped teeth, porcelain veneers are a great option. Veneers are suitable for patients who have enough natural tooth surface to adhere to the permanent veneer. Veneers also help to reduce spaces between teeth, hide misshapen teeth, or lengthen teeth that are considered smaller than the surrounding teeth.
For many people who want a bright, full smile, veneers in Puyallup, Wa, are a great option. When you make an appointment at SK Family Dental to discuss veneers, we’ll examine your teeth to determine if they are a suitable option for you. We’ll provide you with everything you need to make an informed decision about cosmetic dentistry.
What is Involved in the Treatment Process?
Cosmetic dentistry involves many treatments and procedures to improve the look and function of your teeth. Veneers are custom-made treatments that are unique to your teeth. Prior to receiving your permanent veneer, or set of veneers, a temporary version will need to be fitted. Patients will be able to carry on as normal while waiting for their permanent veneers to arrive from the dental lab.
When your permanent veneers are ready, the attachment process doesn’t take a lot of time, and dental cement ensures a properly-fitting bond. Patients should feel no pain or discomfort during treatment. It’s a painless process that provides amazing results that can last for years and years.
How Can You Care for Temporary and Permanent Veneers?
A temporary veneer is not as strong or durable as the permanent version and so care should be taken when you are eating and cleaning your teeth. Brushing gently and taking care not to pull floss through the teeth too vigorously as the temporary veneer may become dislodged. Sticky or chewy food should also be avoided.
Immediately after receiving either temporary or permanent veneers, you may experience some sensitivity. This is completely normal and will subside after a few days as the tissue heals. While you may take some additional care with your teeth during this period, once your permanent veneer adheres and your teeth have stopped feeling sensitive, you can return to your normal everyday routines.
What Should You Expect After Treatment?
To reduce the sensitivity after treatment, rinsing with a warm salt water solution will help the area heal more quickly. If the pain persists a gentle pain-killer such as Advil or Tylenol should help. Some patients report that a new veneer feels a little strange in their mouth at first, but this feeling goes away after a few days as your mouth gets used to the feeling. However, if your bite continues to feel strange in any way for a longer period, you should get in touch with our office at (253) 770-0198 who will check if everything is normal.
In order to ensure the veneer stays in perfect condition, regular flossing and brushing is important, paying special attention to the area between the veneer and the tooth at the gum line while flossing and caring for your teeth. Taking care of your veneers is an important part of the treatment process.
What are the Benefits of Veneers?
With temporary veneers, patients can walk out of our dental office with an immediate result and feel good about the way their teeth look. Waiting for the permanent veneers to come in takes only a few weeks and then patients will have a beautiful, permanent smile. Porcelain veneers are very durable, and patients can expect them to last for years to come. When you have a good set of veneers, it can look like you have a whole new healthy smile.
