Patients near Acworth ask, "What do the procedures for veneers feel like?"
Over time, certain dental treatments have been misunderstood. This can cause men and women to shy away from the dental office. However, avoiding the dentist can result in oral conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease. At 32 Dental, we believe in patient education. The more you know, the more likely you will feel comfortable with dental treatment. Patients near Acworth will often ask, "What do the procedures for veneers feel like?" We are happy to explain what can be expected during treatment.
When patients have severe gag reflexes or suffer from dental anxiety, we may recommend dental sedation. We provide nitrous oxide or laughing gas to ensure relaxation during any dental treatment. For treatment, we gently place a comfortable mask over the nose. While nitrous oxide is inhaled, patients remain conscious and alert. After the procedure, the effects of the sedative wear off quickly. This allows patients to drive home after their appointments.
Dental veneers are wafer thin shells that we place onto teeth that are misaligned, gapped, permanently stained, chipped, or cracked. Veneers can provide the appearance of straight teeth, close gaps between teeth, and restore damaged teeth. Patients often enjoy the mock-up process, which involves making impression of the teeth. The molds are sent to our dental laboratory to create mock-ups of the veneers.
For treatment, we numb the affected teeth and surrounding areas before minimally preparing the teeth. This ensures the veneers are not bulky and fit precisely. The veneers are made of porcelain, which is a strong, durable, and stain resistant material. The material is ideal for the teeth that show when smiling because it is natural looking. With proper care and maintenance, dental veneers can last a decade or more. Excellent oral hygiene habits should include brushing at least twice a day, flossing before bedtime, and maintaining dental check-ups at least biannually. Check-ups should include professional cleanings and examinations.
