What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are made of thin shells of porcelain and are used to cover imperfections at the front of your smile. Veneers can cover issues like chips, cracks, discoloration, staining and unevenness. They are durable, with most veneers lasting for over 10 years without needing any type of repair or replacement. You will find that porcelain veneers help to transform your look and improve your smile.
Why would Porcelain Veneers be needed?
You might want or need porcelain veneers because you’re looking to completely change the way that you look. You might be planning a big event or just be feeling incredibly badly about the way that you look each day. Veneers are a great way to noninvasively change your appearance without having to go for months or years worth of work. The veneers can be replaced after they begin to show signs of wear just as easily as they were initially placed.
Who is a candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Most patients are good candidates for porcelain veneers and can benefit from treatment. Veneers are most suited to otherwise healthy adult teeth. We will examine your teeth to determine if you can benefit from veneers and if your teeth are healthy enough to hold onto the restorations themselves. Veneers can help to cover many different imperfections, so you’ll finally feel good about your appearance.
What happens during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
The procedure begins by slightly buffing and filing down the front teeth. Local anesthetic may be needed in order to help improve your comfort during this process. We then take impressions that are used to make the actual veneers. Your second appointment into our office involves placing the actual veneers. This is done carefully to ensure that each and every veneer looks its absolute best. With proper care and maintenance, your new veneers can last for 10 or more years.
