Veneers in Reno, NV

Long-Lasting Cosmetic Treatment

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells of porcelain that are meant to fit over the front surfaces of your teeth and cover up a wide variety of cosmetic flaws. This includes chipped teeth, gaps between teeth, stains, uneven and misshapen teeth, and more. Dr. Dean is an experienced cosmetic dentist, and can improve your smile and your self-confidence with veneers in Reno. Contact your Reno Dentist for an appointment now stop by our office located at 620 Humboldt Street, Reno, NV 89509.

Why Get Veneers?

Understanding The Benefits

Veneers look and feel completely natural, since they’re made of enamel-like porcelain materials. They also last up to 10-20 years, and require minimal special care beyond routine brushing and flossing. Veneers also are highly versatile, and can be used to treat almost any cosmetic problem with your smile. And, of course, this all adds up to more self-confidence and higher self-esteem. Your new smile will make you feel proud of your appearance once again.

The Veneer Placement Process

Initial Consultation

To begin the process, you’ll need to see Dr. Dean for an initial consultation. After a comprehensive oral exam, she will discuss veneers and your other cosmetic dentistry options to ensure veneers are the right treatment for you.

Tooth Preparation

At your next appointment, Dr. Dean will clean and numb your mouth, then remove a thin layer of enamel from each tooth that’s getting a veneer. After this, she will take molds and images of your teeth, and send these to a dental lab. You’ll be sent home with a set of temporary veneers.

Crafting Your Veneers

Our lab partners will craft a set of beautiful, lifelike veneers based on the molds and images of your teeth sent by Dr. Dean. Once your permanent veneers are done, they’ll be sent back to WestSide Dental Studio. This usually takes 2-3 weeks.

Permanent Veneer Placement

Once your veneers arrive at our office, you’ll come back for a final appointment. Dr. Dean will remove your temporary veneers, clean your teeth, and do a final fit check for your porcelain veneers. If everything looks good, she will use dental cement to permanently attach them to your teeth, completing the procedure.

How To Care For Veneers

At-Home Oral Hygiene

Make sure to continue to brush twice a day and floss once per day to keep your mouth healthy and prevent cavities and gum disease.

Changing Your Habits

You’ll need to avoid chewing non-food objects like pencils and pens. It’s also bad to use your teeth as “tools” to open packages or tear tape, since this could damage your veneers. We also recommend chewing extremely hard foods like nuts with your rear teeth, not your veneers.

Finally, come to WestSide Dental Studio every six months so that Dr. Dean can examine your mouth and provide you with a clean bill of health.
