Dental Veneers Lake Oswego

Teeth can be affected by several factors, including aging, trauma, cavities, and disease. To prevent further damage or repair teeth that have already been damaged, you may choose to have our dental team place veneers on your teeth. These thin shells of porcelain are installed over the top of your existing teeth and can serve to change the shape, size, and color of your teeth. If you are considering getting dental veneers, you can visit our experts at Robert H. Peterson DDS to find out which veneers are most suitable for your teeth and why.

Types of Veneers Available

There are two main types of veneers: porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Porcelain veneers can be repaired if damaged, whereas composite veneers cannot be fixed easily if damaged, so keep that in mind when looking at both options. Porcelain also tends to last longer than composite. With veneers, you may not need a complete set of teeth whitening. Sometimes just repairing damage to your teeth is enough to get you back on track. Again, porcelain veneers are the best for your teeth if you are prone to tooth breakages. It will help protect your teeth from getting damaged all the time.

How Do I Know I Need Dental Veneers?

Veneers are normally used for the front teeth, and if they are fractured, stained, or damaged in any way, veneers can help improve their appearance. However, sometimes it can be challenging to know if you need veneers. This is why a visit to the dentist is necessary. When you come visit us we will first get a sense of what your teeth look and feel like. That might mean taking X-rays or pictures, or it might just mean looking at them with a hand mirror. After that, we will likely ask you some questions about how you brush and floss. If you have some minor damages that cannot be easily spotted, we may recommend getting a veneer or other treatments to improve your teeth.

What Should I Consider Before Selecting A Veneer?

It is important to understand your options before choosing a veneer because veneers come in different materials. The condition of your teeth might help you determine the most suitable material to use. We will help you select one that is best for your teeth. Also, it is crucial to think about your tooth color before choosing your veneer. While veneers can help improve your smile, it is important to be sure you are comfortable with your tooth color before installing them as veneers cannot be whitened. It is always recommended that you get a teeth whitening procedure before getting veneers.

How Long Does It Take to Get Dental Veneers?

Are you considering veneers as a way to cover up damaged teeth but are not sure how long it will take? It may be surprising to learn that you could get veneers in as little as two weeks. The process does vary, as several factors can affect how long getting veneers takes. This can include what materials are used, your dental health, and if you are having other procedures done at the same time.
