At Premier Dental of Beavercreek, dental veneers are part of our cosmetic dentistry services in Beavercreek. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or resin composite that are bonded to the front of the teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth. Veneers can quickly produce a stunning change in your smile!
Veneers are not permanent, generally lasting 5 to 10 years before needing to be replaced. They are very durable, however, giving you a beautiful, long-lasting smile. Get started on your path to a great looking smile with a consultation at our dental office in Beavercreek. Dr. Van Ee and staff will examine your teeth to see if porcelain dental veneers are possible to achieve your long-term dental goals.
Dr. Van Ee will remove a small amount of the tooth surface to allow the placement of the veneer. An impression is taken of your tooth and sent to our dental laboratory. The dental veneer is then custom made to fit the tooth and mouth. The veneer is bonded to the tooth with resin cement.
Dental veneers do not require any special care. Continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing as you normally would. Even though porcelain veneers resist stains, your dentist may recommend you avoid stain-causing foods and beverages (for example, coffee, tea, or red wine.)
At Premier Dental of Beavercreek, we see patients frequently who have chipped, stained or cracked teeth, which makes them self-conscious about their smile. In most cases where there is damage to a tooth, but the foundational structure is still intact, dental veneers can be applied to cover up any stains, cracks or chips. Our board certified dentist, Dr. Lauren Van Ee, and her staff will provide an exam to determine if you are a candidate for dental veneers, take a mold of your existing tooth/teeth, color-match the shade of your other teeth and have a custom dental veneer designed for you. At your second appointment, Dr. Van Ee will apply the veneer with a bond adhesive to your existing tooth/teeth. Before you leave, our staff will provide information on maintaining your new dental veneers, from brushing and flossing to foods to avoid that may weaken the bond.
