What to Know About Veneers

Veneers are made out of porcelain or a composite. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your choices with you and come up with the best plan to get the results you are expecting.

Veneers are applied by first shaving or drilling the tooth so that when the veneer is applied, it will fit correctly and look natural. Usually somewhere between .5 mm and 1 mm of the tooth’s surface is removed to prepare for the installation of veneers.

Once the tooth service is prepared, molds are made of the teeth that are then sent to a dental lab and your veneers are created. This can take one to two weeks. Your Tulsa dentist at Perfect Smile Tulsa can offer you temporary veneers until the permanent veneers can be installed, at an additional cost.

Once the veneers are installed, they can last several years with proper care. One of the best ways to protect your veneers is to properly brush and floss your teeth and make regular visits to your Tulsa dentist for cleanings and to have your veneers examined for any chips or cracks.

To avoid damage to your veneers stay from nuts, hard and sticky candies and other hard or difficult-to-eat foods. Do not chew ice as this can damage your veneers. Avoid coffee, tea, red wine and other beverages and foods that can stain your veneers.

Choosing to have veneers installed is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Make an appointment with one of our Tulsa cosmetic dentists to discuss your options and the costs of the procedure.
