What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are incredibly popular restorations that can transform the front of your smile. They are placed over just the front teeth and help to cover flaws and minor imperfections. Veneers are thin, but they are durable and long-lasting. Most veneers can last for about a decade or more before replacement is necessary.
Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
You might want to have porcelain veneers placed because you’re tired of feeling badly about your smile. Your teeth might be stained, cracked, discolored, unevenly spaced or have other imperfections that deter from their natural beauty. Rather than work on every individual tooth, veneers can cover the flaws so that they’re not at all noticeable.
Who is a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
We can examine your teeth to determine if you’re a good candidate for veneers. Most people who want veneers can safely have the procedure done. Most veneers can last for up to a decade and will need to be replaced in order to maintain a healthy, full-looking smile. Veneers are a great choice for patients wanting to avoid the expense and work of needing additional cosmetic treatments.
What happens during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
We will start by filing down the front teeth. This improves the ability for the veneers to adhere properly to the front of your smile. Impressions allow us to create custom-made veneers just for you. You will then come in for a second appointment to have the veneers placed. The veneers are carefully placed over each individual tooth and filed down as necessary. You will be amazed at how completely different your smile looks. Veneers are easy to care for and are solidly in place, so it’s rare for them to break or fall off. If a veneer happens to fall off, just bring it into the office with you so that it can be reattached.
