Veneers are very thin, ceramic shells that are designed to cover up and restore your teeth. They are typically built to cover the front teeth, and can treat a wide variety of cosmetic flaws in your smile. This includes gaps between teeth, uneven teeth, significant tooth stains, and chipped teeth, to name just a few.
Veneers are durable, highly versatile, and long lasting, and are often considered to be the best overall cosmetic dentistry treatment available. Contact your dentist in Jacksonville, FL now for an appointment, and see if veneers from Dr. Mariam Barikbin are right for you.
Veneers are matched to the color of your teeth, and use porcelain materials that have the same translucence and strength as your real enamel. This makes them look completely seamless and natural.
First, you will come and see Dr. Barikbin for a cosmetic consultation in Jacksonville. Veneers are a great choice, but they’re not your only option. At your appointment, Dr. Barikbin will examine your mouth, have an honest discussion about how your smile makes you feel, and discuss the cost and details of all of your options.
If veneers are right for you, Dr. Barikbin will schedule a follow up. At this appointment, she will clean your teeth and numb your mouth. Then, she will remove some enamel from each tooth that’s getting a veneer, and take molds of your smile.
You will get a set of temporary veneers to cover your teeth, and you will go home. Dr. Barikbin will send your smile molds to a dental lab, and work with them to build a set of natural-looking custom veneers that will fit into your smile perfectly.
It usually takes 2-3 weeks for your veneers to be made. Once they arrive at your Jacksonville dentist, you’ll come back for your last appointment. Dr. Ortega will remove your temporary resin veneers, clean your teeth, then check the fit of each veneer, bonding each one in place with dental cement. Finally, your teeth will be polished, and you’ll be sent home to enjoy your new smile.
First, veneers look extremely real and natural. They are made from tooth-like materials, and are designed to have grooves and other tiny details that make them look indistinguishable from real teeth. They also require minimal special care. Just brush twice daily and floss once daily, and make sure to see Dr. Barikbin for a checkup every six months.
Veneers also last a very long time, with a lifespan of up to 10-20 years with proper care. They also are made of nonporous ceramic materials, which means they will never become stained.
Finally, they are highly versatile. In most cases, even the most extensive cosmetic problems can be quickly and easily treated with veneers, making them an excellent choice for most patients.
No. As long as your teeth are healthy, you can get veneers at any age. In fact, veneers are very popular with older people. Restoring your smile with veneers can make you look younger and feel more confident, particularly if you have stained, yellowed, or worn-down teeth.
