Today we have exciting new biomaterials that can give your smile a lift without invasive treatments. We can use ultra-thin porcelain veneers to correct chipped, weakened, or discolored teeth.
No more yellow. No more gaps or embarrassing chips. And our veneers can return real structural integrity to damaged teeth, while leaving them looking as good (or possibly better) than the originals.
The process for dental veneers generally consists of three appointments with the dentist. Usually, there is an initial consultation to determine what the patient’s goals are and then the dentist will make recommendations based on the patient’s goals. The dentist will also explain the overall process, determine that veneers are the right option for the patient, and possibly take x-rays or make impressions if necessary. After the first consult, the dentist will produce the veneers and then apply them.
We will custom fit your veneers to fit over your natural teeth, with a finish more translucent to blend in with surrounding teeth. So people won’t notice your tooth, they’ll simply see your beautiful, natural smile.
Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers
What types of problems do porcelain veneers resolve?
Porcelain veneers are a great way to solve a number of cosmetic and structural dental problems. We may recommend them for gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, unevenly shaped or sized teeth, broken or worn teeth, or stubborn discoloration.
Is it possible for porcelain veneers to break?
Once the veneers are bonded into place by a highly trained and experienced dentist, the chances of them breaking are very slim. The porcelain used in porcelain veneers was designed to reinforce your natural teeth so they are less susceptible to damage.
Will porcelain veneers look natural?
Yes! One of the greatest benefits of porcelain veneers are their incredibly natural appearance. They should look just like your natural teeth as they are intended to recreate their texture and color.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
As long as you care for your veneers, they should last at least a decade. To care for them, you’ll need to brush and floss them as if they were natural teeth and visit the dentist for a checkup and cleaning every six months or so.
Is it painful to get porcelain veneers?
Fortunately, the porcelain veneer procedure is relatively painless. A local anesthetic or sedation dentistry may be used to ensure you feel comfortable throughout the entire procedure.
How do porcelain veneers improve the appearance of teeth?
You can count on porcelain veneers to give you a beautiful smile by making your teeth appear whiter, straighter, healthier, and more uniform.
Are porcelain veneers right for everyone?
While many patients can benefit from porcelain veneers, they are not an option for everyone. You may not be a good candidate for this treatment if your teeth are weakened by decay or disease or if you regularly grind your teeth.
