Transformative Porcelain Veneers in Lincoln
Porcelain veneers in Lincoln are a popular cosmetic solution and a wonderful way to transform the teeth that show when you smile. If you are ready to improve the appearance of stained, gapped, misshapen, or otherwise imperfect front teeth, it’s time to learn about dental veneers! These thin coverings made of high quality dental porcelain are sturdy, long-lasting, and highly customizable -- for your most naturally beautiful smile.
What Do Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Veneers work by simply covering up the appearance of cosmetically imperfect but otherwise healthy teeth. By focusing on just the teeth that show when you speak and grin -- the “social six” -- your cosmetic dentist can completely transform the look of your smile.
Dental veneers can be used to fix any number of cosmetic imperfections all at once. Some of the issues that are commonly improved with veneers include…
Slight gaps between teeth
Stained teeth that have not responded to professional teeth whitening
Off-center or mildly misaligned teeth
Oddly textured teeth
Short, stubby, or pointy teeth
And other cosmetic issues
Procedure for Veneers
If veneers are the right solution for your smile, you can expect the procedure to be completed over the course of two visits to your cosmetic dentist in Lincoln.
In the first visit, we will prepare your teeth for the treatment by removing a small sliver of enamel from the surface of each tooth that will receive a veneer. Molds (impressions) of the prepared teeth are made. We send this information along with your specifications to our trusted lab, which will manufacture the veneers according to your treatment plan. You wear temporary veneers between visits.
In the second appointment, you come back for the final placement of your new veneers. Your dentist removes the temporaries and checks to make sure the new ones are just like they should be. Then the veneers are bonded securely on -- and you leave our office with a new and improved smile!
Are You a Candidate for Veneers?
Most adults (patients over the age of 18) are eligible for dental veneers. We will want to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy, first, so we will schedule a checkup and cleaning before beginning with any elective treatment.
People who grind their teeth at night will be advised to invest in a custom-fitted mouthguard if they choose to undergo the treatment for porcelain veneers. Without it, the delicate porcelain will wear down just the same as would your natural tooth enamel. Athletes who play contact sports should consider a sports guard to wear during games and practices to prevent breaks or chips in the porcelain.
Once we determine that your teeth can be safely transformed with dental veneers, we look forward to getting started right away!
