Dental Veneers and Dental Laminates
Dr. Beecroft is an expert veneers dentist and provides dental veneers so that patients can restore damaged teeth or transform their smile into something beautiful. At First Class Dental Care we often treat patients that have a variety of dental concerns. Some patients visit our Sioux Falls office because their tooth has been broken while others are looking to create a Hollywood smile. Most people are candidates for the procedure as long as their tooth structure and roots are in place. If, however, you have a cavity or gum disease this will need to be treated before the procedure is completed.
What Is A Dental Veneer?
A veneer is a thin shell that is made out of porcelain or ceramic. The shade of the veneer, along with its shape and size will be made to match your surrounding teeth so that it blends in perfectly.
If you want to learn more about dental veneers, we recommend that you call 605-271-9330 to schedule an appointment. We are known throughout South Dakota as a trusted provider of veneers and can let you know if they will help you to achieve the goals that you have for your smile.
How Is A Dental Veneer Used?
We can accomplish a variety of things using dental veneers. By placing them on top of the teeth, we can close gaps, make teeth even in length, cover dark stains and create a uniform looking smile. In this way, veneers can create a smile that rivals the most famous Hollywood stars. In fact, many of them have had this procedure to create the smile you see today. The nice thing is that you don’t have to be famous to improve your smile. You simply need to call 605-271-9330 and schedule an appointment to see Dr. Beecroft.
Other Uses Of Dental Veneers
When patients visit our First Class Dental Care we will take an impression of their teeth so that the veneers can be created in a lab. They will be made to match the size, shape, and color of your teeth so this can take a week or more.
In order to have dental veneers placed, Dr. Beecroft will first prepare your tooth by removing a portion of the enamel. This is necessary so that the veneer will lay flat and in line with your gum tissue. After the tooth has been prepared, a temporary veneer will be secured using removable glue. While wearing a temporary veneer, it is important to brush your teeth gently and avoid eating any foods that could push it out of place. Since it is secured by removable glue, it can be moved fairly easily.
When your permanent veneers are ready, you will come back into our First Class Dental Care office so that Dr. Beecroft can remove the temporary and ensure that the new veneer is a perfect fit. It is typically attached using a water based solution to see how it looks. If any adjustments need to be made, it will be done at this time. Otherwise, the tooth will be cleaned, and the dental veneer will be bonded to the tooth. Patients throughout South Dakota love how the results look. They are instant, and you can start flashing your smile right away.
After The Procedures
Your teeth will typically be sore for a few days after they have been prepared and after the permanent veneers are placed. During this time, you can take pain medication to help you stay comfortable. Patients throughout Sioux Falls benefit from getting rest and using a cold compress to reduce any swelling. Dr. Beecroft recommend that patients watch what they eat for a few days and stick with foods that are soft. While there is a short recovery time when getting veneers, the procedure is entirely worth it because in the end you will have a beautiful smile.
