What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can cover up a wide range of different imperfections at the front of your smile. They are durable and long-lasting, with most veneers lasting for 10 or more years before needing to be replaced. Veneers can be used to cover teeth that are stained, dull, yellowed, discolored, cracked, chipped or unevenly spaced. This simple, yet effective cosmetic option can transform your look in a matter of just two visits.
Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
If you’ve been hiding away your smile and are looking for a confidence boost, you might want to consider porcelain veneers. Many of our patients want to change their appearance before a big event, like a wedding or reunion of some kind. Veneers are thin and fit perfectly over your front teeth. They can be used to cover unsightly teeth that you’ve been ashamed to show off.
Who is a candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are best for adult patients with otherwise healthy teeth. We will examine your teeth to determine if they are healthy enough to have veneers placed. If you have older veneers that are showing signs of wear, we might recommend having them replaced. Because your veneers are custom-made just for you, they’ll look realistic and natural.
What happens during the Porcelain Veneer procedure?
The first step to placing veneers is to buff the front teeth. This roughens up the otherwise slick and shiny surface so that the veneers can adhere better to them. We then take impressions that will be used to craft brand new veneers just for you. You will come in for a second visit so that we can place the new veneers. This process takes some time, since we want to get the fit and feel of the veneers just right. You will be amazed at how different you look thanks to what porcelain veneers are able to do for your appearance and your smile.
