Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Porcelain veneers can not only transform a smile, but they are durable and look great! Patients love the way veneers improve their appearance.
Porcelain veneers do not require a lot of preparation, and they can be placed in just two or three visits to the dentist. For patients seeking to improve the appearance of their smile, porcelain veneers may be the solution they are looking for.
What Makes Porcelain Veneers Special?
Porcelain is a strong, slightly translucent material that closely resembles the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Since veneers have a smooth, glass-like finish, they are also resistant to staining.
What Problems Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
One of the great things about porcelain veneers is that they are so versatile.
Veneers offer many solutions, including:
- Changing the shape of uneven teeth
- Covering chips and cracks in teeth
- Concealing gaps between the teeth
- Correcting the appearance of slightly misaligned teeth
How Are Porcelain Veneers Applied?
Before we proceed with any treatment, it’s important for patients to have a dental exam. We need to make sure teeth are healthy so we can determine whether porcelain veneers are the best choice.
If porcelain veneers are right for the patient, we start by removing a small bit of tooth enamel so the veneers will fit the teeth properly. Then we take x-rays and impressions and help patients choose the right shade for their finished veneers. The impressions are sent to a dental lab where the veneers are custom-made according to our specifications.
When the veneers are finished, patients return to our office and we will bond the veneers securely to the front surface of the teeth. Once they are in place, we polish and shape them. With regular dental visits and proper care, veneers can keep smiles beautiful for many years.
