A Cosmetic Dentist Can Give You Long-Lasting Veneers

Posted on: October 16, 2017

Cosmetic DentistAs a cosmetic dentist, we know that veneers are an excellent way to address many dental challenges you may face. Naturally, when you are choosing a treatment option, you will want to know all the pros and cons of this particular system. For many of our patients, they have already gone through the process of vetting their treatment options before settling on dental veneers since, as a cosmetic dentist, Shwedel Dental can provide you with several options for improving your teeth.

Veneers

There are important questions one needs to ask when considering veneers or other options. First, people need to know what the scope of the treatment is and the various treatment options. This will allow one to receive answers to other relatively standard questions, like how long the treatment will last.

In the case of veneers, it typically takes about two visits to place the veneers, unlike some treatment options that can last months or even years. Another common question is how permanent the solution is. As a cosmetic dentist, we place veneers after shaving away a tiny portion of the enamel and then attach the veneer using dental cement. The dental cement makes the veneers extremely permanent. Price is an important vector in which many of our patients compare veneers to other solutions and find that dental veneers are far less expensive than other remedies.

There is the all-important question of what dental veneers can fix. We spend a great deal of time negating the rumor that the only thing veneers are good for is whitening teeth. We use veneers to fix minor bite issues, provide a whiter smile, repair damaged teeth, and even treat some cases of malocclusion. Veneers can help with whiter teeth if traditional means fail.

Porcelain Veneers

As a cosmetic dentist, we often use porcelain to make our dental veneers. Porcelain has a number of qualities that make it very suitable for dental work. For starters, porcelain is extremely malleable and also very hard. This durability allows dental veneers specialist to mold it into the perfect shape to cover the patient’s teeth. We can also color and shade porcelain to match the color and shade of the surrounding teeth in the patient’s mouth. Biocompatibility, or the ability of a substance to work in perfect harmony with the natural tissue once inside the body, is also very important.

Porcelain is extremely compatible with the body, making it the number one material used for fabricating things like dental veneers and even dental crowns. In addition to how it looks (aesthetics) and the fact that the body will not reject it (biocompatibility), porcelain is also very hard and completely insoluble. Surrounded by saliva, oral bacteria, and acids, porcelain holds up very well in the hostile environment of the mouth.
