Porcelain Veneers

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are designed to cover the front teeth. These veneers can create a full, healthy and beautiful smile in just two visits. If your front teeth are otherwise unsightly with discoloration, stains, gaps and spaces, you might benefit from simply covering them up with porcelain veneers. The beauty about veneers is that they can last for a long time, with most lasting for 10 or more years before needing to be replaced.

Why might Porcelain Veneers be needed?

Whether you want to look your best for a big event or are just looking for a confidence booster, porcelain veneers are a great option for you. These veneers can be used to cover front teeth that have stains, deep discoloration, spaces, gaps, cracks and are otherwise unsightly. Rather than go through more invasive procedures, veneers can be made and used to cover what’s bothering you. Despite being thin and delicate in nature, they are durable and will last for many years.

Who is a candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Your front teeth should be otherwise healthy enough to receive the veneers. If the front teeth are decayed or experiencing other dental problems, we might recommend other treatments before the veneers are made and placed. However, most of our patients who want veneers can safely have them placed over their teeth. Older veneers can and should be replaced as they show signs of wear.

What happens during the Porcelain Veneer procedure?

The first step will be to rough up the front teeth and file them down slightly. This makes room for the new veneers, which can help them to look more natural. Impressions of your teeth are taken and will be used by professionals to create your very own set of porcelain veneers. Your second visit involves placing the veneers themselves and getting the fit and feel of them just right. You will then benefit from having a full, healthy smile that you won’t need to think about. You should still brush and floss around your veneers to keep your natural teeth clean and healthy.
