Veneers in Tulsa
If you have significant gaps, damage, stains, or any misshapen teeth, veneers from Southard Dental can help improve the appearance of your smile, and strengthen your teeth!
Veneers are custom-made, thin shells made out of porcelain or resin. They’re molded to your teeth and permanently bonded in place. They can cover any gaps or cosmetic issues, leaving you with a gorgeous, natural-looking smile!
The Benefits Of Veneers
Southard Dental veneers can offer:
- A natural, beautiful smile – Veneers are indistinguishable from your natural teeth, so you’ll have a beautiful smile that looks truly authentic!
- Stronger natural teeth – Veneers are bonded permanently to your existing teeth, and can help strengthen and reinforce your natural tooth structure.
- Long-lasting results – When properly care for, a set of veneers can last from 12-25 years. Best of all, you don’t have to adjust your oral care regimen. Simply brush and floss as you normally would!
With expert veneer installation from Dr. Wrany Southard, you can achieve long-lasting, durable, and gorgeous results!
The Process – How Veneers Are Installed At Southard Dental
The process of installing veneers is simple. Usually, Dr. Southard can install a full set of veneers in only 2 appointments.
The first appointment is your initial consultation. During this time, you’ll discuss your needs with Dr. Southard, and he will examine your teeth to determine how many veneers you need, where to place them, and other basic information.
If you are a good fit for veneers, the next step is to prepare your teeth. About 0.5mm of enamel will be removed from each tooth that will have a veneer applied. This is equal to the thickness of the veneer itself, and is done so that the veneer will have a seamless look.
After this, X-rays, photographs and impressions will be taken, so that your veneers can be manufactured to perfectly fit your teeth. It will usually take somewhere between 2 to 4 weeks for your veneers to be manufactured and sent to Southard Dental.
After your veneers are received, it’s time to place them. During your next appointment, your veneers will be placed on your teeth temporarily to ensure a great fit and color, and can be adjusted and trimmed as necessary.
Your teeth will then be cleaned, polished and etched, which roughens the tooth to provide a better hold for the bonding material. Dental cement is applied to your tooth, and the veneer is installed, and cured with a special UV light that permanently bonds it to your natural tooth.
After your veneers are installed, Dr. Southard will remove excess dental cement and evaluate your bite to ensure a perfect fit.
