Are You a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Your Crystal River dentist, Dr. Lisa Schnell, will always recommend a treatment plan that benefits your smile as a whole, and for a lot of patients, that entails getting porcelain veneers. However, before your veneers can be placed, we must first ensure that your oral health is in adequate condition. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, we’ll have to get those issues taken care of beforehand. If not, then you can go ahead and begin the veneers procedure.

The Process of Getting Veneers

In general, it takes two appointments to place your veneers. During your first visit, Dr. Schnell will prepare your teeth by filing down a minimal portion of your enamel to make sure the veneers will lay flat against the line of your smile. Once your teeth have been prepped, we’ll take impressions to send off to a ceramist’s lab and place temporaries while your veneers are being meticulously crafted. You’ll return to our office in a few weeks when your restorations are ready. Then we’ll bond them to your teeth with a composite resin and send you off into the world with your brand-new perfected smile!

Benefits of Veneers

The most advantageous factor that porcelain veneers offer is their versatility. They act as masks that can conceal just about any cosmetic imperfection in your smile. Even if your teeth are mildly crooked, veneers can correct this issue. For this reason, they have earned the nickname “instant orthodontics.”

Another excellent reason to invest in porcelain veneers is their longevity. With proper care, they can last 10, 15, or even 20 years. Just remember to brush and floss your veneered teeth regularly, and come visit us for a checkup and cleaning every six months. Also, wear a mouthguard during physical activity and avoid chewing very hard foods.
