Weninger Dentistry has helped many Tampa patients reverse years of discoloration caused by coffee, tea, tobacco, and food with thin laminates called veneers. Applied in just a few visits, veneers can also be used to correct worn, chipped, or cracked teeth, and to close gaps between teeth.
When visit Weninger Dentistry’s Tampa office for your veneers, an impression of your tooth will made, and a veneer will be modeled from that impression. The preparation process involves buffing the tooth to remove an extremely thin layer of enamel, which allows for the thickness of the veneer. The custom veneer is bonded to the tooth using a special adhesive cement. A special light is used to set the bond, completing the process. Since veneers require a modest amount of enamel to be removed, veneers are non-reversible and permanent.
To help protect the appearance of veneers, we advise our Tampa patients to make lifestyle choices that will benefit veneers, as well as the entire body. As with natural teeth, veneers should be kept free of plaque and buildup to stay clean and healthy. Regularly brushing your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste is the first step in keeping your veneers white. Flossing will help to remove plaque and food from in between teeth. This will not only help keep your veneers bright and clean, it will help prevent buildup on the back of teeth with veneers. In addition to a daily oral hygiene routine, it will be a good idea to visit our office every six months for a check up to ensure your teeth and gums are as clean and healthy as possible.
