My Experience with Veneers
As you may know, dental veneering is one of the cosmetic procedures that Parker, CO cosmetic dentist, Dr. Chris Green, performs routinely at Green Dental Care. Christie is one of the hundreds of patients who have dental veneers from Green Dental Care in Parker, CO.
Christie’s Experience with Veneers
Christie shared her experience with veneers that were placed on her teeth by Dr. Christopher Green, a cosmetic dentist in Parker, CO. “I came with very poor crowns on the front and my teeth were a distinct yellowish color that I was really uncomfortable with,” says Christie. She adds that she was unable to whiten them because of the color of her dental crowns. Once dental crowns are stained, it’s hard to whiten them.
She continues, “So, I got these beautiful new veneers made by Dr. Green and the practice here, and I am just absolutely thrilled with them! I went home last night and unveiled my new veneers in front of my husband and kids…My kids and husband were over the moon on seeing my veneers and I just couldn’t be happier! I’m absolutely thrilled with the treatment plan!”
You can watch Christie express how ecstatic she is here:
We at Green Dental Care have been at this for quite some time, but each patient like Christie who cannot hold back their joy once they look at their new veneers gives us renewed strength to keep doing what we do, and even look for better ways to serve the community that calls our dental office their home.
Preparing for Veneers
The process starts with a consultation. During the consultation, Dr. Chris Green examines you to confirm that dental veneers are the right procedure to address your needs. Dental x-rays will also be taken during this consultation. Once Dr. Green confirms that you are a suitable candidate for veneers, he will explain the treatment plan to you. You will decide whether to proceed immediately or scheduled the procedure for later. If you decide to start the process immediately, Dr. Chris Green will prepare the teeth. He will use manual and electric tools to remove material from the surface of your teeth to make room for the veneers. This preparatory step ensures that your teeth will not look larger or wider than they normally look unless your teeth are small and you want to enlarge them using the veneers.
Placing the Veneers
Once the teeth are prepped, the cosmetic dentist in Parker, CO will create a mold of the teeth and also select a color from the shade guide. This information is sent to the external lab that will make your veneers. It may take a week or two for your permanent veneers to be ready, so Dr. Green will fit you with temporary veneers in the meantime.
During your second visit to Green Dental Care, the temporary veneers will be removed and replaced with the permanent ones. Dr. Green will check the veneers to confirm that they are the right dimensions. If everything is in order, Dr. Green will use a special light to harden the veneers. Thereafter, he will polish them until they are indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Follow-up Experience with Veneers
You can expect to make a follow-up visit to Green Dental Care a few weeks later. This visit helps the Parker, CO dentist make sure the veneers are properly placed and your bite is as it should be.
If the follow-up visit doesn’t uncover any complications, proceed with your normal oral hygiene routine. This should entail brushing your teeth twice each day and flossing once a day. Your veneers will last anywhere from 5-10 years before you will need to replace them.
