3 Steps to Prepare for Dental Veneers, Thomasville, North Carolina

Dental veneers are an excellent solution to stains, chips, and gaps, and you need to properly prepare for the procedure. While it’s a minimally invasive procedure, there are still essential steps to getting your mouth ready. Taking care of dental care needs will ensure a smooth application and that you enjoy your new smile for years to come.

How to Prepare for Dental Veneer Application

1. Schedule a Cleaning

dental-care-nicholas-j-hurley-dds-pa Your dental care professional will need a clean surface to apply the dental veneers to, which means you’ll need a teeth cleaning if you’re overdue. Schedule it several weeks in advance or earlier if your dentist advises. They can clean plaque and debris so the veneers fit comfortably and ensure that you’re properly maintaining your smile.

2. Resolve Existing Oral Health Problems

If you have cavities or are living with gum disease, your dental care professional may not be able to apply the veneers until the problem is resolved. If you’re aware of these issues, schedule an appointment for treatment. Gum disease care can take months and require extensive procedures, so anticipate organizing veneer application accordingly around it. You should also let your dentist know about any facial surgery or lip enhancements you plan on having, as these may interfere with how the veneers fit.

3. Watch What You Eat & Drink

Following your cleaning, you’ll need to practice proper dental care to keep your teeth healthy for the veneer procedure. Avoid sticky and hard foods that may damage teeth and cut down on sugary foods and drinks. Veneer application can take several hours, so the day of, don’t drink too much and eat something light so you’ll be comfortable during the procedure.
