Can I get veneers from my Richmond dentist?

If your teeth are crooked, stained, chipped or misaligned, and you are not happy with the way you look because of it, then porcelain veneers could be a great option for you. This is an excellent way to help improve your self-confidence, for the long-term.

How does it work?

Firstly, you will have a consultation appointment with your dentist Richmond, where we will examine your teeth and discuss your needs. This is important so we can ensure that the veneers are the right choice for you. If all goes well, you can begin the process.

To start off, we will remove a thin layer from the front of the chosen tooth or teeth, which helps the veneer to attach more seamlessly. You don’t need to worry about us changing the actual shape of your teeth when you get these. Once your teeth are prepped, we will take an impression of your mouth so that your custom veneers can be created to fit your mouth and teeth perfectly, to look as natural as possible.

Once your veneers have been created, this is when the magic happens. Your dentist Richmond will temporarily attach all of the veneers onto your teeth to make sure they get the best results before permanently attaching them. We do this to make sure that the veneers can be in the best position possible, increasing the natural look of them. Then, we will permanently attach the veneers to your teeth and we are done! It’s as simple as that. We use a special dental cement to attach the veneers to your teeth, meaning it is not particularly invasive. Once the cement is applied, an ultraviolet light will be used to speed up the hardening of the cement.

How do I maintain them?

Veneers are very easy to look after which is a great benefit for our more busy patients. All you have to do is care for them as you would your normal teeth by brushing and flossing. When you first have your veneers done, your gums may be slightly sore, but this will settle in a few days. Make sure to brush your teeth carefully during these early days. You will not have to come for many regular check-ups with your dentist Richmond which is great if you have a busy schedule.

Here at Sheen Dental, we take pride in ensuring that our patients feel happy and comfortable when they come into our dental practice. If you are ever feeling curious, nervous or scared about a certain dental treatment, we will be there every step of the way to help you through it.

The main benefit that our patients who have veneers enjoy is the appearance. They look just like your natural teeth, but brighter and whiter! Our patients feel amazed when they see the results of these porcelain veneers, as they are so pristine and look so real.

Using porcelain is an advantage in itself, as it is a material which not only looks the same as natural teeth, but also works well with your gums. It is also stain resistant, which helps in prolonging the amount of time they last for.
