What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a lifesaver for those with discolored, crooked, misshapen, chipped or oddly sized teeth. These very thin pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain are custom-made and adhered to the front of the teeth. They are capable of completely transforming your teeth and smile, and frequently eliminate the need for crowns.
Many people choose veneers simply for their cosmetic appeal. They are a simple way to create a uniform, bright smile, and will last for years. If you want a whiter and more beautiful smile, veneers may be the ideal solution.
Do I Need Veneers?
You may be a candidate for veneers if you live for any of the following cosmetic dental issues:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Worn-down enamel
- Stains or discoloration
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Uneven teeth
Our cosmetic experts will perform a thorough oral examination to help you determine if veneers are right for your smile. We will design a treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Schedule your consultation today to get started!
How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
Getting veneers is a fairly simple process, usually completed in two appointments. Our dentist will prepare the surfaces of your teeth to allow space for the veneer, take an impression of them, and then work with you to decide on a shade that most closely matches the rest of your smile.
At a later visit, your teeth will be cleaned so the veneer will bond, and then the veneers will be cemented. A special light is used to allow the cement to set, the veneers are then polished, your bite is checked and you are on your way with a beautiful new smile.
Are Veneers Permanent?
Yes, veneers are a permanent cosmetic solution. With proper care, your veneers can last 15-20 years before needing to be repaired or replaced. Our dentist will provide any specific instructions, and advise you to continue brushing and flossing to keep your entire mouth healthy and beautiful.
