Our team at Abba Dental has put together this article so that you can understand more about porcelain veneers and their ability to transform your smile.

Read more to learn how you can get a winning smile with the help of porcelain veneers near you.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells applied to the front of your teeth to correct minor cosmetic dental problems. Porcelain veneers provide a more natural-looking appearance than other kinds of dental veneers, and their porcelain material makes them very durable, lasting patients up to fifteen years with the proper care.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Applied?

Porcelain veneers are applied over numerous visits to Abba Dental. Before you can get porcelain veneers, our dentist near you will need to check the condition of your teeth to ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Our dentist near you will prepare your teeth for custom veneers at the next appointment by shaving a small amount of enamel off your front teeth to make space for them. They will then take an impression of your teeth so your veneers can be manufactured at a dental laboratory. While your custom veneers are being made, our dentist will provide you with a set of temporary veneers to wear.

Our dentist will clean, etch, and polish your teeth at your final appointment before bonding the porcelain veneers to their front surfaces. A special light will dry the veneers to your teeth, and any final adjustments will ensure your smile looks picture-perfect.

After your procedure, you may experience some increased tooth sensitivity, but this should subside within a few weeks.

What Can Porcelain Veneers Treat?

Porcelain veneers are a permanent solution for a variety of problems, including:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Large gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Cracked or chipped teeth

Looking After Your Porcelain Veneers

Like natural teeth, porcelain veneers require proper care and maintenance to ensure longevity and appearance.

When eating hard foods such as ice or nuts, try not to bite down too hard, as this can loosen or chip your veneers. Ensure you maintain a good oral hygiene routine of brushing your teeth twice daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste and flossing and rinsing with mouthwash. Finally, make sure that you schedule professional dental cleanings and checkups at Abba Dental at least once every six months to check the condition of your veneers.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visit to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

- Our Office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.

- We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find hand sanitizer in reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.

- You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

- We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
