How Do Veneers Feel?



    So, how do veneers feel?  Veneers feel like your own teeth, but even better.  When you feel the porcelain veneer with your tongue, there’s nothing smoother- not even your own enamel is as smooth as porcelain!

    And how does it feel to get your veneers?  In most cases no anesthesia is needed because little or no enamel is removed from the teeth.  In most cases because no enamel is removed, there isn’t any drilling and when drilling is needed, in most cases, it’s minimal and in the enamel, so most people are comfortable without getting numb.  If your teeth are sensitive, it’s easy enough to give anesthesia, and we have several tricks to make that experience comfortable for you.

     When enamel is removed and it would be noticeable, temporary veneers are placed so you have a lovely smile while you’re waiting for the laboratory to custom make your veneers and new smile.  It’s exciting for you to have a preview of what your new smile is going to look like.  It’s really exciting to think that your real veneers are going to look even better.  Having temporary veneers also gives you an opportunity to make requests for any changes in size, shape, or color that you would like in the finished veneers.

    When you have your appointment to bond the veneers to the front of your teeth, after removing any temporary veneers, the doctor puts a solution called etching solution on the front of your teeth to make microscopic openings for the bonding material to enter and connect the veneer to your enamel.  When your veneers are bonded on, you have a beautiful, smooth, shiney, bright new smile!

  1. Porcelain Veneers are artistically designed custom thin porcelain layers that are bonded on to teeth to create straight, healthy looking teeth without the use of orthodontics. It is usually a 2 visit procedure. During the first visit the dentist removes a small amount of the enamel & takes an impression, which is sent to our highly qualified technicians who design the Custom Veneers. It usually takes 7-10 days for the Veneers to be back. During this period the patient wears temporary Veneers that are custom crafted by the dentist.

  2. Porcelain veneers can be the perfect way to create a smile is natural looking and that will last. The porcelain which is a ceramic with many features similar to glass gives your smile a look that is bright, smooth and that looks like natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are specially designed for each patient so that the fit is perfect for your teeth. They are thin shells of porcelain ceramic that covers the front of the teeth. The process is usually considered irreversible because the natural enamel on your teeth is removed so that the porcelain veneers can take its place.Dentists that use porcelain veneers are considered cosmetic dentists. It is important to find a cosmetic dentist that has spent additional hours training in the skills and techniques required for creating a perfect smile using cosmetic dentistry procedures like porcelain veneers.

  3. In Today’s life Porcelain veneers are the instant way to perfect white teeth. It fixes the bad, crooked or stained teeth easily. Without the use of braces you can also close the tooth gap. In order to seal or bond the dental veneer to your teeth, dentist will remove a very small amount of enamel from the surface of the teeth that will be treated.

  4. Permanent porcelain veneers are bonded to the teeth using the finest materials. As with natural teeth; avoid chewing excessively hard foods on the veneered teeth (hard candy, ice, raw carrots, etc.) because the porcelain material can break under extreme forces.
    Proper brushing, flossing, and regular 6-month (minimal) cleanings are essential to the long-term stability and appearance of veneers. If not the gums may recede reveal the underlying discolored tooth structure requiring replacement of veneers.
