Dental Veneers

Are your teeth stained, chipped, or damaged? Dental veneers could be the solution you've been searching for. These ultra-thin shells, crafted from porcelain or composite resin, seamlessly cover the surface of the affected tooth, effectively masking imperfections such as discoloration, cracks, and chips.

The process of getting dental veneers is straightforward. While it typically requires two visits and the use of local anesthesia, the procedure is minimally invasive. The best part? With proper care, dental veneers can maintain their pristine appearance for well over a decade, offering a long-term solution to enhance your smile.

Getting Dental Veneers at Potomac Dentistry

First Visit: Dr. Bawa will assess your dental health and collaborate with you to identify teeth suitable for veneers. An impression of the chosen teeth is taken and sent to our lab, ensuring each veneer is meticulously crafted for a perfect fit.

Second Visit: To prepare for the veneer, Dr. Bawa delicately reshapes the tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel. This ensures the veneer fits seamlessly, preventing a bulky appearance. The tooth is then prepped with a bonding agent, allowing for a sturdy attachment. Using specialized lighting, the veneer is secured and finely polished for a natural look.

Veneer Longevity: Crafted from durable composite resin or porcelain, dental veneers are long-lasting. With proper oral care, they remain problem-free, revitalizing your smile in just two visits.

"Brushing and flossing after meals and visiting the dentist for regular check-ups are critical aspects of proper maintenance."

Dental Veneer Aftercare Guidelines

Good dental hygiene is vital to ensure the longevity and aesthetics of your new veneers. Here's how to keep them in top condition:

  • Regular Dental Hygiene: Brush and floss after every meal. Regular dental check-ups are essential to spot any potential issues.
  • Avoid Hard Foods: Refrain from chewing hard candies, ice, and similar items. Opt for soft foods for the first few days post-procedure, steering clear of nuts, hard bread, popcorn, and seeds.
  • Bite Guard Usage: Wearing a bite guard while sleeping can safeguard against grinding, which could damage veneers.
  • Mind the Stains: Veneers can be susceptible to staining. It's best to limit or avoid tobacco, red wine, and coffee to keep them looking their best.

Remember, veneers are an investment in your smile. With proper care, they'll stay beautiful for years!

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental veneers may feel strange at first. Most patients become accustomed to their veneers a few days after the procedure. Patients should let their cosmetic dentists know about any bite problems as adjustments may be needed.

Patients should make their decision based on their desired results and the current state of their teeth. We usually recommend porcelain for patients with crooked or misshapen teeth, gaps, and cracks. Composite veneers may be a better choice for patients with stained or minorly chipped teeth.

Most dental veneers last between seven to 15 years. Proper care is necessary to extend the life of veneers. Visiting the dentist regularly and following aftercare instructions can also help veneers last longer.
Dental veneers are used only on the front teeth and are not appropriate for molars. The exact number of veneers depends on the state of the teeth and the patient's esthetic goals. Most people opt for an even number of veneers, commonly two, four, eight, 10, or 12.
Local anesthetics numb the patient before removing tooth enamel and installing veneers. After the procedure, it is common to experience mild soreness affecting the jawbone and gums. Over-the-counter pain medication can reduce this discomfort.
If damage occurs, the veneer may loosen and eventually come off. Patients should see their cosmetic dentists in these cases. Do not attempt to reattach the veneer at home with glue or any other substance. Avoid hot and cold foods and beverages since the exposed tooth may be sensitive because of the removed enamel.
