Getting Crowns & Veneers at Life Dental Group

Feb 15, 2024

At Life Dental Group, we understand that the decision to enhance your smile with dental crowns or veneers is a significant one. Whether you’re looking to improve the appearance of your teeth or restore them to their natural strength and function, our team is here to ensure your journey is comfortable, informed, and ultimately, rewarding. Here’s what you can expect when you choose to embark on the transformative experience of getting crowns and veneers with us.

Initial Consultation: Your Path Begins

Your journey begins with an initial consultation. During this visit, our dedicated dental professionals will conduct a thorough examination of your oral health to determine the best course of action for your specific needs. We’ll discuss your aesthetic goals, the differences between crowns and veneers, and what the best option for you might be. Crowns are typically used to restore teeth that are significantly damaged or decayed, covering the entire tooth. Veneers, on the other hand, are thin shells designed to cover the front surface of the teeth, perfect for enhancing your smile’s appearance.

Preparing Your Smile: The Customization Process

Once we’ve decided together that crowns or veneers are the right choice for you, the next step is the preparation of your teeth. For crowns, this involves reshaping the entire tooth to ensure a perfect fit. For veneers, the preparation is minimal, with just a thin layer of the tooth enamel being removed. This process is carefully done to ensure your comfort, and we’ll provide all the necessary information to prepare you for what to expect.

After preparation, we’ll take impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create your custom crowns or veneers. This ensures that your new smile will not only look natural but also fit comfortably and functionally in your mouth. You may be fitted with temporary crowns or veneers while your permanent ones are being crafted in a dental lab, ensuring your teeth are protected and your smile looks great in the meantime.

The Transformation: Placing Your Crowns or Veneers

Once your custom crowns or veneers are ready, you’ll return to our office for the final placement. This visit is often filled with excitement as you’re just steps away from seeing your new smile. For crowns, we’ll ensure a perfect fit, making any necessary adjustments before permanently cementing them in place. Veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth, instantly transforming the appearance of your smile.

This process is typically comfortable, and while there may be some sensitivity immediately following the placement, it usually subsides quickly. Our team will provide you with all the care instructions you need to ensure your new crowns or veneers last for years to come.

Enjoying Your New Smile

The moment you’ve been waiting for has arrived – it’s time to enjoy your new smile! Crowns and veneers not only improve the look of your teeth but can also enhance your confidence, making you feel proud to show off your smile. At Life Dental Group, we’re committed to providing not just exceptional dental care but also a transformative experience that leaves you feeling better about yourself.

Continuing Care

With your new crowns or veneers, regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are key to maintaining your smile’s health and brightness. We’ll see you for follow-up visits to ensure everything is looking and functioning as it should, and provide you with tips to keep your smile shining.
