Restore Aesthetics to Your Smile in Two Visits
Veneers are a fast and painless way to revitalize your smile, alleviating it of any imperfections. This treatment is ideal for patients who want a simple journey to a luxurious smile. Veneers aim to rid your teeth of common problems such as chips, cracks, gaps, and uneven surfaces.
We can also use veneers to enhance the size and shape of teeth. In some situations, we can use veneers to renew severely stained teeth that don’t react to whitening treatment.
Setting porcelain veneers is easy and pain-free. The procedure doesn’t require surgery, and it only takes two short visits to our Grand Rapids, MI office.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are a thin porcelain shell that Dr. Robson attaches to the front of your teeth. Our veneers are customized to blend with the rest of your smile, creating the smile you’ve been dreaming about.
Placing Dental Veneers
You can begin to experience the benefits of dental veneers after three simple steps.
Step #1: Your Consultation with Dr. Robson — This is an excellent opportunity to discuss what you hope to gain from treatment. If you and Dr. Robson decide that veneers are ideal for your smile, we’ll start the process immediately.
Step #2: Taking an Impression of Your Smile — Dr. Robson will take an impression of your smile which he sends to a dental laboratory where they’ll create your custom-designed veneers.
Step #3: Securing the Veneers — After a week or two, your veneers will be ready. Dr. Robson will begin the placement process by preparing the tooth that’s receiving the veneer. Then, he’ll use a durable dental adhesive to secure the veneer to the tooth.
Caring for Dental Veneers
While veneers are designed to look and feel beautiful, they can also restore some form and function to your smile. The following tips will help you keep your veneers in top shape:
- Avoid unnecessary stress. For example, please don’t use them to open plastic, eat hard treats like ice or pistachio nuts, or eat sticky, hard candy.
- Brush and floss like you usually would. You won’t damage the veneer by maintaining your oral care regimen, and it’ll keep your gums healthy as well. Be sure to use non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush.
- If you have a history of bruxism (teeth grinding or jaw clenching), ask Dr. Robson if you qualify for a nightguard. These devices protect your veneers and teeth while you sleep.
- Veneers can last anywhere from seven to twenty years, depending on the quality of the material and the maintenance it’s been given.
