Dental Veneers

Woman smiling with her fresh dental veneersDental veneers are the best solution for minor structural or cosmetic teeth issues. They also are a great way to whiten your teeth permanently. Unlike a full crown, you keep much of the original structure of your natural teeth underneath.

Our surgeons at Surf City Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery will help you take good care of your dental veneers so they last a long time.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells that cover the top layer of damaged or aesthetically challenged teeth. They are sculpturally designed to look just like real teeth.

Our surgeons will first examine the condition of your teeth and design veneers that perfectly match the colors and contours of your other teeth.

If you want to whiten your teeth permanently, you can get a thin layer of veneer on the desired shade of your teeth. As long as you don’t have extensive structural damage, you can walk out with a completely new smile.

Dental Veneers and Full Mouth Reconstruction

Sometimes, there are small aesthetic issues in every tooth in the mouth. There may be slight bite misalignments, overcrowding, discolorations, and more.

These problems aren’t always severe enough for braces or aligners. Some discolorations cannot be improved with regular whitening either. Sometimes the length of teeth may be irregular.

All of these issues can be solved with a full mouth reconstruction. Sometimes full mouth reconstructions require dental crowns, bridges, or implants. However, if the damage is not severe, it can be managed with dental veneers alone.

Our surgeons at Surf City Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery will provide you with the best options for reconstructing your smile.

Caring for Dental Veneers

With the proper care, dental veneers last a very long time. However, like your natural teeth, they can become chipped. To avoid that, you must not bite into things with hard seeds or use your teeth to pry something open.

Only use your teeth to bite and chew food. Avoid overly brittle food and remove hard seeds from fruit and foods before biting into them. This also applies to your natural teeth.

If you got a complete set of veneers, you want to care for your investment well. Here are some other essential care tips for dental veneers.
•  Don’t consume staining foods like tomatoes or coffee; if you do, clean your teeth after consuming them.
•  Use a soft bristle brush to ensure you do not break down or unnecessarily grind down your veneers.
•  Remember to floss daily, especially after food is stuck between teeth, like corn or meat.
•  Avoid smoking.
•  Do not clench or grind your teeth. If you grind your teeth in your sleep, get a protective retainer.
•  Get frequent dental checkups.

Our surgeons at Surf City Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery will provide you with a comprehensive guide on how to care for your veneers. Our surgeons will also thoroughly discuss what material should be used for your case, whether it’s porcelain, ceramic, or composite veneers.
