If you’re looking for a way to get bright white teeth, at My Platinum Dental in Broken Arrow, OK, we offer the best veneers in Broken Arrow, OK. Veneers are thin shells of composite resin or porcelain bonded to the front of your teeth. They are ideal for covering up crooked, misshapen discolored and stained teeth. Some stains don’t come out, even with professional dental whitening. Many people have uneven teeth or misshapen teeth. Custom-made veneers are your solution for these and other cosmetic dental issues, like chipped teeth.
Veneers are simple to fit and long-lasting. Getting veneers takes three visits. Most kinds of veneers require the outermost layer of enamel to be shaved down to make room for the veneer. Even though veneers are wafer-thin, they still take up a little room.
The Procedure for fitting Veneers
Veneers take two or three appointments to plan, prepare and place. First, your dentist examines your teeth and X-rays them to make sure your teeth are free from any cavities or periodontal disease that might affect your veneer’s placement. Next, your dental professional at My Platinum Dental removes about one half of a millimeter of enamel from the tooth’s surface. Your dentist will make a model of your tooth and send that model to a dental lab, which will custom-build your veneers to your exact measurements.
At your final appointment, your dentist trims and shape each veneer to fit your tooth surface perfectly. Remember, a veneer will look just like a naturally white, flawless tooth surface! Your dentist will cement the veneers to each tooth surface with a unique cement that hardens when exposed to special UV blue light or laser. The curing process makes sure the veneer is permanently bonded to your tooth. The light itself causes chemical adhesives to cure.
Veneers can last up to ten years. They are stain-resistant, but dark-pigmented beverages like coffee, cola, tea, and red wine can stain them. Cigarette smoke also stains veneers.
Don’t chew hard candy, ice, or any other hard object (like your nails.) Veneers are tough but chewing these kinds of objects will shorten their lifespan dramatically.
