Here at All Family Dental Care, we are proud to offer veneers for our patients in Everett, WA and the surrounding area.
Veneers are used to cover stains, chips, decay, or irregularities on your teeth. Veneers are thin coats that we are able to apply right over your teeth. In order for to have veneers, you will need to have a model made of your teeth so that the veneers can be custom-fitted to your mouth. We will also remove some enamel during this process to make the veneer permanent.
Once you get dental veneers, it is important to take great care of them. As a precaution, we recommend that you stay away from any foods or drinks that may stain them. You also will not want them to chip or crack, so be careful about eating hard foods.
Veneers are an affordable option that will give you a beautiful smile. They are much cheaper than crowns and will still give you a smile that you can be proud to show off. They are also a better option than bonds because many people complain that bonds lose their natural color. You do not want this!
Just like with crowns and bridges, you will get temporary veneers made while you wait for your permanent ones. The temporary ones are important to keep your teeth in the same place and your mouth protected. While the temporary ones are in, it is important that you are extra careful with what you are eating. Avoid sticky foods and be very gentle when flossing. If you do lose your temporary veneers, you want to make sure to contact us right away.
Once you get your new veneers, your teeth may be extra sensitive when it comes to cold food. You will want to avoid both hot and cold food and drinks. If you are experiencing discomfort with your teeth or gums, you can rinse your mouth with a warm water solution mixed with salt. If the pain continues, you can also take over-the-counter drugs for a few days as your mouth adjusts to the new veneers. Also, if your bite does not feel balanced, you should contact us.
Once you have the veneers, you will need to care for them to ensure that they last. It is important to continue a healthy oral care routine including brushing and flossing your teeth daily. You will also want to refrain from eating too many sugary foods because sugar will eat away at your teeth and veneers.
Our entire staff will work with you throughout the entire process to ensure that you are happy with your veneers. We understand that questions may come up, and you are always welcome to reach out to us. We want you to have a smile that you are proud of, and that is exactly what porcelain veneers will do for you.
