What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Hide chipped, crooked, decayed, or stained teeth with a single treatment —porcelain veneers. At James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we use veneers to correct multiple flaws at once, for results that are aesthetically pleasing as well as long lasting. Dental veneers are light shells made out of porcelain is bonded to the fronts of your teeth, improving their overall look. Dr. James Peterson offers custom and minimal-prep veneers that can improve the color, size, shape, and length of your teeth.
Real Patients, Real Results
Are You a Candidate?
Porcelain veneers 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 and customize a treatment based on your needs. He will also determine whether you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers by checking your overall oral health for signs of periodontal disease or habitual clenching and grinding, also known as bruxism.
What To Expect
As soon as Dr. Peterson has developed your unique treatment plan with you, he will take physical or digital impressions of your teeth. Depending on your case, your porcelain veneers might be produced in our office while you wait, or the impressions may 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 to create space for the veneers and improve the bond, for more natural results that last for many years. Once your veneers are bonded, Dr. Peterson can make minor adjustments to make your veneers comfortable and achieve the look you want.
Recovery and After Care?
After receiving your veneers, you may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold, but this should subside naturally after a few days. You will need to clean your veneers like you do your natural teeth, with regular brushing — using a soft-bristled toothbrush — 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 for as long as possible. To avoid harming your veneers, you should never chew on hard objects, such as ice or even your fingernails. Continue to schedule 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 ever need to be repaired or replaced.
