What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are placed over the front teeth.
These veneers are made to cover imperfections and minor flaws that cause you to feel badly about your smile. They can last for about a decade once placed, ensuring that you always have a full, solid smile to feel confident in showing off. Despite being thin, veneers are incredibly durable and can be treated as any other tooth in the mouth.
Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
Patients often want veneers to improve and perfect their smile. You might want them placed before a big event, like a wedding or a class reunion. You might want veneers placed because your front teeth are cracked, unevenly spaced or severely discolored. Veneers can correct an array of problems that would otherwise require a lot of invasive work to fix.
Who is a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Most patients who want or need veneers can safely have them placed. The procedure itself often requires little to no anesthetic. Considering how transformative veneers can be, they are simple to create and place. They feel completely natural and can last for years before needing to be replaced.
What happens during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
We will buff the front teeth to both improve the fit of the veneers and adhesion.
We then take impressions that will be used to make the new porcelain veneers. The veneers will be placed at a second appointment and smoothed to improve the fit and feel. Your new veneers can completely transform your smile and create a new, confident look that you’ll feel proud to show off. Your veneers can last for about a decade because they may start showing signs of wear. At this point, the veneers can easily be removed and replaced so that you always have a smile that you will love.
