What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are small, thin shells that are attached to the front teeth. They can hide imperfections and flaws, giving the appearance of a full, bright and white smile. Veneers are relatively durable, often lasting for about 10 years before they may need to be replaced. They are considered a type of cosmetic restoration because they work to cover problems rather than repair them.
Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
Porcelain veneers are long-lasting, durable restorations that have been used in the dental field successfully for many years. Many people choose veneers because they’re ready to transform their smile either because they’re unhappy with it or because they have an upcoming event. Some things that veneers can help to cover include:
- Chipped teeth
- Small fractures
- Gaps and spaces
- Uneven teeth
- Discoloration and staining
The. dental work I had done yesterday is a magnificent work of art. My dentist was fantastic. She made me comfortable and explained to me in detail just what she was doing. I am extremely pleased and satisfied customer.
What makes you a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
The procedure to actually place the veneers is done quickly in-office and requires little to no anesthetic. This allows you to come in, be fitted for the veneers and be ready to have a transformed smile in about two appointments. You will need to have an exam and consultation prior to being fitted for the new veneers. Our goal is to provide you with a high-quality restoration that works well for your lifestyle needs.
What happens during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
The first step is preparing the front teeth for your new veneers. Impressions, which are also known as molds, are taken and sent to a local lab where the porcelain veneers are made just for you. You will then need to come back to have the veneers placed. Veneers may need to be adjusted slightly to ensure they fit and feel comfortable. Your new veneers will last for about 10 years before they can simply be replaced. The procedure takes very little time in our office and provides you with a new, transformed smile.
