Create a Winning Smile with Professional Porcelain Veneers
Ocean Dental Center provides patients with many different procedures and treatments that help individuals to achieve a new and improved smile. One of these treatment options is porcelain dental veneers. Many individuals look for convenient methods such as DIY veneers. Continue reading on to see the difference between DIY and permanent veneers.
What Exactly are DIY Porcelain Veneers?
DIY porcelain veneers will typically not arrive in porcelain material nor are they a permanent option. They are used throughout the day and can be taken out during the night. An individual can take an impression of their teeth and send it to a company where they will create temporary veneers.
How are Permanent Veneers Placed?
During your first visit with our Ocean Dental Center dental team, they take measurements of your teeth and mouth. These specific measurements will help to ensure a secure and comfortable fit for the permanent dental veneers. They will then take an impression of your teeth and send it to a lab where your veneers will be custom made. In the meantime, your dentist will provide you with temporary dental veneers. Once your permanent veneers are made, your dentist can make any other small changes after placement.
How Do You Care for Permanent Veneers?
With proper care and keeping, your permanent veneers can last for many years to come. They can be cared for in a similar way as your natural teeth. It is important to use a non-abrasive toothpaste for brushing at least twice a day. Regular dental exams and cleanings at least twice a year are essential in protecting your veneers and smile.
