Benefits of Veneers

Veneers have lots of benefits. As mentioned, they are extremely versatile, and can be used to cover up almost any cosmetic flaw. Porcelain veneers are a durable and long-lasting cosmetic treatment. Cared for properly, you can expect your treatment to last many years, possibly up to 20 years.

You care for them just like natural teeth. Brush and floss normally, and see Dr. Acree in Modesto for a checkup every six months. However, to make sure they last a long time, you should avoid biting into really hard foods or chewing non-food objects. If you grind your teeth, you should also wear a mouthguard at night to protect your veneers.

Of course, the biggest benefit is that you will have a beautiful, flawless smile. You’ll feel more confident when you smile, laugh, speak, and eat around others. You’ll even look younger, since stained and damaged teeth are often associated with aging. Interested in saving money for your dental care? Ask about our in-office dental savings plan today!

The Veneers
Placement Process

To begin, Dr. Acree will need to examine your mouth and determine if veneers are right for you. Some oral health problems, such as active gum disease or tooth decay, may prevent you from getting cosmetic dentistry.

Tooth preparation & impressions

After you’ve been approved for treatment, you’ll schedule your next appointment in Modesto. At this appointment, Dr. Acree will clean and numb your mouth. Then, he will gently trim away a very thin layer of enamel. This is done to make room for your porcelain veneers, and to ensure they don’t affect your bite. Then, he will take impressions and scans of your teeth. This information is used by our partner dental lab to build your veneers.

Design & build your veneers

You will be sent home with a set of temporary veneers to cover up and protect your teeth. Dr. Acree will work with a dental lab to build your permanent set of veneers, which should arrive at our office within a few weeks.

Final veneer fit check & placement

When your permanent veneers have arrived, you’ll come to our office for your final appointment. Dr. Acree will double-check the fit of each veneer and make any necessary minor adjustments. Then, he will bond each one into place. Finally, he’ll give you some tips on how to care for your new teeth, then send you home to enjoy your brilliant, brand-new smile.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Porcelain veneers are a durable and long-lasting cosmetic treatment available from Dr. Acree at Downey Park Family Dentistry.  Cared for properly, you can expect your treatment to last many years, possibly up to 20 years. 

This is because veneers are built out of very durable porcelain that’s similar in hardness and durability to your natural teeth. And because your teeth are trimmed to make room for veneers, fresh enamel is exposed, which makes it easier for veneers to bond tightly to your teeth. 

Veneers are also completely stain-resistant. After your treatment, your smile will look bright and beautiful for the years to come. As long as you take care of your veneers and your oral health, you can expect your veneers to last a very long time.

Am I A Good Candidate For Veneers?

If you have a healthy mouth but there are flaws in your smile like gaps between teeth, severe stains, or uneven teeth, veneers from Dr. Acree may be right for you.

However, it is important to note that veneers are only meant to treat cosmetic issues with your teeth. It is not recommended to get veneers if you have significant oral health problems like damaged teeth, periodontitis, or have orthodontic issues that require correction. 

Not sure if you’re a good candidate for treatment? We recommend contacting the team at Downey Park Family Dentistry for a cosmetic consultation in Modesto.
