Porcelain Veneers Rogers, AR

Porcelain veneers are the cosmetic dentistry solution for repairing and enhancing your smile. Dental veneers are high-quality, permanent restorations designed to fix minor cosmetic problems. Porcelain veneers look and function like natural teeth and require no additional maintenance. They are made of durable material lasting up to 15 years with excellent oral health care. Dr. Heather Adams provides porcelain veneers in Rogers, AR, to brighten and straighten teeth.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

A porcelain veneer is a ceramic shell made from a tooth-like material. A dentist places the veneer to a prepared tooth’s front and sides. The shell is ultra-thin, custom colored, and shaped to blend seamlessly with adjacent teeth for a natural result. Then, our dentists bonds the veneer to the existing tooth.

Porcelain veneers can restore a single tooth or multiple teeth for a total smile makeover. They are made from a highly durable and light-reflective material. Multiple veneers can cover all of the teeth that show when you smile. A complete set of veneers uses eight veneers to cover all of the teeth in your smile zone,

Porcelain veneers are highly stain-resistant, offering years of bright white smiles. If you have deep tooth stains from foods or drinks or a heavy smoker, you can benefit from veneers. Dental veneers can achieve beautiful cosmetic results and protect the tooth structure from further damage or decay.

What Can Dental Veneers Treat?

Dental veneers can provide multiple treatments for patients who want to treat cosmetic dental problems. Veneers can:

  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Repair a chip or cracked tooth
  • Straighten the appearance of a crooked tooth
  • Reshape a misshapen tooth
  • Whiten a discolored tooth resistant to whitening gels

Dr. Heather Adams is a Rogers, Arkansas, area cosmetic dentist with a natural eye for facial aesthetics, years of experience, and advanced training. Dr. Adams uses porcelain veneers to create seamless, gorgeous smiles that last.

What are No-Prep Veneers?

As an alternative, some dentists offer composite, “no-prep” veneers. These are removable veneers that are attached directly to the affected tooth. Little to no tooth trimming is involved for no-prep veneers. This type of veneer, while also popular, is appropriate only in some instances.

Veneers are beneficial if your teeth are generally in good shape. However, they aren’t as durable and permanent as dental veneers made of porcelain material. We do not recommend no-prep veneers for patients with crooked or large teeth.

“No-prep” veneers require less tooth preparation than porcelain veneers. They also offer quick and reversible treatment.

Treatment with Porcelain Veneers in Rogers, AR

Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells that we permanently bond to one or more teeth. To begin treatment, Dr. Adams prepares the teeth that will receive a dental veneer by removing a small amount of the tooth enamel. Tooth preparation ensures the veneers fit properly. Dr. Adams aims to ensure your veneers do not look or feel bulky.

Once the teeth are prepared, Dr. Adams takes dental molds off the teeth. Dr. Adams will also color-match teeth to help you meet your cosmetic goals. If you receive a veneer for a single tooth, Dr. Adams will ensure it matches your other natural teeth. She will ensure all your veneers match if you receive veneers for all of the teeth in your smile line.

Then, Dr. Adams will send your molds and shade match to a dental laboratory. Lab technicians will create tooth-colored veneers according to her specifications. You will receive temporary veneers to wear while the lab creates your final restoration. Dr. Adams can also create a mock-up of your veneers so you can approve the final design.

When the final dental veneers are ready, Dr. Adams will remove the temporary veneers. Then, she will temporarily place the final veneers on the teeth. She will make any necessary adjustments for comfort. Before the final fit, you will approve the veneer’s shape, color, and size. Once approved, Dr. Adams uses a special bonding material to permanently attach the veneer to the tooth.

How to Care for Dental Veneers

After the final fit, you can eat, speak, and take care of your smile normally. Brushing and flossing daily to keep the teeth surfaces clean. When brushing, use a soft-bristled brush. Avoid abrasive toothpaste, as this can scratch your veneers.

Routine dental care allows Dr. Adams to monitor the condition of the veneers and make any needed repairs to maintain your new smile for as long as possible. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for many years.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

What are the disadvantages of porcelain veneers?

Veneers are known as a permanent treatment. Once you commit to getting veneers, you must maintain or replace them for life. Veneers are also prone to damage. You will require a replacement if a veneer is chipped, broken, or cracked.

Even though porcelain veneers provide a protective barrier for your teeth, they will not prevent tooth decay. To protect your teeth and help your veneers last a long time, you must be committed to a strict, daily oral hygiene routine and visit your dentist twice yearly for a regular checkup.

Can I whiten my teeth after I get porcelain veneers?

We strongly advise against it since veneers cannot be whitened. If you have your teeth whitened after having veneers placed, they will no longer match the color of your teeth. Tooth veneers are designed to blend naturally with your surrounding teeth and will be fabricated to color-match your natural teeth. If you want teeth whitening, it should be completed before placing your veneers.

How do I care for my veneers?

You can care for veneers like your natural teeth. Continue your regular oral hygiene routine. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice daily and flossing daily. You should also visit your Rogers, AR dentist at least twice yearly for a routine cleaning and oral exam.

We also suggest you avoid chewing on hard items that could chip or crack your veneers. Do not chew on pen caps, your fingernails, or ice. Your veneers should last up to ten to twenty years with proper care.
