More About Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain coverings that are placed atop the teeth’s natural surface. They can improve color, alignment or spacing issues in the mouth. They generally have a longer life expectancy than bonding because of the strong material they are made of.

Veneers are made by a dental lab provided based on measurements taken at your cosmetic dentistry office in Zanesville, Ohio. Generally, these veneers can be placed in just two visits, the first is the planning and preparation of the mold and the second is the actual placement visit.

Dr. Merker, Dr. McAllister and Dr. Merker from Merker McAllister Dental prepare a patient's teeth by lightly buffing them so they can accept the veneers better. The teeth are thoroughly cleansed with a gel that helps this bond to be achieved more successfully. That gel is rinsed off and a curing light is used atop the porcelain veneers in order to promote them to harden onto the surface of the teeth. The composite resin material itself may be painted on in several layers until the desired look is achieved.

It’s important that you discuss all of your Cosmetic Dentistry options with Dr. Merker, Dr. McAllister and Dr. Merker in Zanesville, Ohio. They can examine your teeth and determine whether or not you are a candidate for porcelain veneers. Much like other teeth, veneers must be cared for properly with regular brushing and flossing.
