Veneers are new coverings for your teeth, usually made of porcelain or ceramic. Strong adhesive bonds thin shells to the surface of your tooth; these are custom-designed to fit and match your original teeth, leaving you with a natural, comfortable smile.
Loftus Family Dental Sandpoint offers the most cutting-edge porcelain veneers in Sandpoint, crafted and tailored just for you using the latest equipment and techniques.
On your first visit, an impression of your teeth is taken so the lab can custom-create your veneers; it’s during this visit that your expectations will be discussed.
Your second visit will involve the application of temporary coverings, and this requires your dentist to gently remove some enamel to flatten the tooth’s surface. Removable glue is used for the temporaries; please treat the temps with care.
On your third visit, you’ll have the actual veneers applied with soft glue. This gives both you and your dentist a chance to adjust them to your liking. Now you’re ready for final cleaning and application of the veneer using an ultra-strong adhesive.
Most patients don’t experience pain, but the few that do can use OTC pain medications, as well as cold compresses, to relieve this temporary discomfort.
You’ll want to steer clear of hard foods (carrots, candy) in the beginning, as well as acidic drinks that can weaken the bond (coffee, tea, alcoholic, etc.).
Continue to care for your teeth with proper brushing and flossing, and your veneers will give you a movie-star smile for years to come.
