If you have teeth that are chipped, misaligned, worn down or discolored, veneers provide a great solution. Composed of a resin or porcelain composite, they’re thin coverings that fit over the teeth. They are made to blend in perfectly with your smile, so you can eat and talk normally. Sculpted to meet your needs, they make for a great way to get that straight, white smile you’ve always wanted.

Who are Veneers For?

We have patients of all ages and backgrounds who enjoy the benefits of veneers! Because they’re personalized to the needs of each patient, we can help you decide what option best suits you. They can either match the color of your nearby teeth, or they can be whiter if you’d like to brighten up your whole smile. Veneers in Tulsa are crafted from a type of dental porcelain that looks like a natural tooth. It is virtually impossible to distinguish a normal white tooth from a veneer.

What's It Like to Get Veneers?

You’ll need two appointments to get your veneers placed. And don’t worry if you need a reminder - we will walk you through the process. When you come into the office, you can expect the placement procedure to go like this:

  1. In the first appointment we’ll x-ray your teeth and get an impression to send to the lab. At the lab, trained technicians will craft the veneer to your personal needs and specifications. We will also clean and prepare your tooth, and determine what shade works best for your veneer.
  2. To make a space for the veneer to fit, we’ll remove a very fine layer of enamel from the surface of the tooth. For more sensitive patients, anesthesia can be applied at this point, though most patients find that it is not necessary.While the impression for the tooth is made in the lab, we will apply a temporary veneer to fill the space until the permanent one comes.
  3. Then, once the designed veneer is finished we’ll have you come back for the second half of the procedure. We’ll start by removing the temporary veneer. Then we’ll clean and prepare the tooth once more. Next comes the etching of the veneer, followed by a rinse, and some time to dry. After placing the adhesive, we’ll use the cement to place the veneer in the correct position. We’ll make sure the veneer matches the color and the shape of your tooth.
  4. When placed, we will cure the veneer with light for one minute so that it becomes completely bonded with the tooth. After the cement is fully bonded, we will remove excess material, polish the veneer, and let you rinse your mouth out.

Pros: Veneers are an extremely successful treatment that has made many happy recipients in its time.

This is one of the easiest and most durable ways to whiten your smile! And not only does it brighten your smile, but it also can fix any gaps, chips or other imperfections that may bother you.

In situations of damaged enamel (the outer surface of your teeth), veneers restore your smile’s health. Age as well as daily habits can put a lot of wear and tear on teeth. Veneers can solve that!

Cons: The treatment is somewhat irreversible. The original tooth must be at least a little altered in order to suit the veneers. Although we can alter the veneers to some extent, or even make you new ones, it will not be possible to return your teeth to their original condition.

Additionally, for a short period after getting the veneers, your teeth will likely experience some sensitivity to hot and cold foods. This occurs because the tooth under the porcelain is still a little tender. Luckily, this sensitivity wears off within a few days.

How Should I Maintain My Veneers?

Veneers are quite durable and only need to be replaced every decade or so. Resistant to even coffee and nicotine stains, you’ll find that this is a reliable, long-lasting solution. Just like you do for your normal teeth, brush and floss your veneers daily to preserve your pristine smile. Generally, if you have porcelain veneers, it’s a good idea to brush with non-abrasive toothpaste.

As a general rule, you should take care of your veneers just like your regular teeth. They are strong, but in rare circumstances they’re a little more brittle than regular teeth. This means that if you grind your teeth or frequently bite hard things you may be at risk of damaging them.

As your Tulsa cosmetic dentist, we’ll help you decide what kind of checkup plan works best for you. We want to ensure that you’re comfortable and satisfied! These appointments will help us confirm that all is going well. We can also polish veneers with a non-abrasive paste, and when you come in we will be happy to help you with that.
