Porcelain Veneers Reviews
"Dr. Peterson and his staff make the dental experience a breeze! I have been a patient since 2005 and Jennifer is my favorite for cleanings. I’ve had crowns, fillings and veneers. Simple, painless (as dental work can be), and professional. I like that they have email reminders and simple to schedule appointments."- K.B. / Google / Jan 06, 2019
Best Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can be used to quickly mask chips and stains on your enamel, improve misaligned or worn down teeth, and fix teeth that are poorly shaped or spaced. At James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, your porcelain veneers will be custom made to fit comfortably over your teeth for an attractive and natural look. At your consultation, Dr. Peterson will listen to your goals and expectations so he can customize your treatment based on your needs. Dr. Peterson will also find out if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers by checking your overall oral health. You should not have signs of periodontal disease, or habitually clench your jaw and grind your teeth (called bruxism).
What To Expect with Porcelain Veneers
As soon as you have developed your unique treatment plan with Dr. Peterson, he will take physical or digital impressions of your teeth. Your porcelain veneers might be produced in our office while you wait, or the impressions can be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be crafted out of high-quality porcelain material. When your porcelain veneers are ready, Dr. Peterson will remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. This creates space for the veneers and improves the bond for a more natural result that lasts a long time. Once your veneers are bonded, Dr. Peterson can make minor adjustments so your veneers are comfortable.
Porcelain Veneers Recovery
After receiving your veneers, you may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold food for a few days, but this should subside naturally. Your veneers should be cleaned like your natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing. While porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains compared to your natural enamel, you should still avoid staining food and drinks to keep your smile bright. To avoid harming your veneers, you should not chew on hard objects, such as ice or your fingernails. Continue to make dental exams and cleanings at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry so we can monitor the condition of your porcelain veneers, teeth, gums, and overall oral health. Dr. Peterson will let you know if your cosmetic veneers need to be repaired or replaced.
