Living with bad teeth is a constant burden that can make you hide your smile or hold back in social situations. Issues like tiny chips or cracks in your teeth or heavy stains are distracting and can put your teeth at risk.
At Oregon Smile Care Center, we understand that sometimes we need to restore permanent teeth. After all, we ask a lot of our teeth, so it’s sometimes necessary for us to help out our teeth when they begin to wear. We can permanently repair pesky flaws in your smile with a two-step procedure.
Veneers are ultra-thin restorations that are placed on the front of individual teeth to cover chips, cracks, gaps, recessed teeth, or heavy stains. We can even use veneers to restore worn enamel on front teeth that have had root canals. Think of the veneers as replacement enamel for your tooth that protects the inner tissues of your tooth. We consider veneers as both cosmetic and restorative dental procedures.
What You Need To Know About Veneers
Here are some facts about veneers that will be helpful as you make decisions about your dental care.
At Oregon Smile Care Center, our veneers are made of durable e.max material that resembles the enamel of your teeth. We can place the restorations over the course of two visits.
First, we remove a small portion of enamel to accommodate the restoration. Next, we take impressions of your mouth to see how the permanent veneer will fit. We work with a dental lab to create natural-looking restorations that can withstand massive biting force. On your final visit, we’ll place the permanent veneer.
To help you make the decision about your restorative or cosmetic dental procedures, we offer lifelike wax-ups. We create our wax-ups from a mold of your teeth and then place your restoration on the mold. This way you can see what to expect at the end of your treatment before you invest your time and money into cosmetic dental procedures. Our office works to coordinate your dental treatments and takes the helm in planning in-depth cosmetic or restorative dental treatments.
