Indianapolis dentist explains the procedure for dental veneers

Have you ever wished that you could make improvements to your smile? Some people are born with amazing smiles, for others, a little cosmetic dental work is all it takes. One of the best procedures to dramatically enhance smiles is porcelain veneers.

Dr. Matthew Church explains the procedure for dental veneers

Dental veneers procedure

  • Initial Examination. It all begins with this appointment during which we determine your candidacy for veneers. We will ask about your goals and discuss the process. If you choose veneers, impressions are taken to help fabricate your smile.
  • Teeth whitening. We may recommend that you have your teeth whitened. Veneers are made of porcelain and do not respond to whitening treatments. That means if you ever opted for whitening later, your veneers would not match the rest of the teeth.
  • Placement. Once your veneers have been custom fabricated, you will return to the office to evaluate fit, shape, and color. Once it is determined that your new veneers are a perfect match, they will be adhered to the front of each tooth.

Taking care of your veneers is simple… practice good oral hygiene at home. Brush your teeth properly and maintain regular dental care to prolong the life of your veneers. Porcelain veneers are strong, but can still be vulnerable to breaking with the same habits that break natural teeth. Avoid biting down or chewing on excessively hard objects like candy, ice, or pens. If you clench or grind your jaw that can put stress and pressure on the veneers, causing them to break. 

Having the brand new smile you’ve always dreamed about can finally be a reality. Soon, your friends and family will be amazed by your show-stopping teeth. If you are in the Indianapolis area, schedule an appointment today to learn more about veneers and find out if they are right for you.

I continue to be impressed with Dr. Church and his staff. They seem to have a great rapport, and his chairside manner is remarkable. In addition, I have never been made to feel embarrassed or punished because of the amount of work my teeth need. Keep up the good work
