What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of white porcelain that will be attached to the very front of your smile. They can cover an array of imperfections that may be causing you to feel badly about the way that you look. Despite how thin and delicate they are, they’re durable and can last for up to 10 years. They are matched so that they blend in well with your smile without looking out of place or bulky.
Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
You might need or want veneers because you’re looking for a quick and noninvasive way to transform your smile. Unlike other procedures, veneers often don’t require any type of anesthetic in order for them to be placed. You might utilize veneers to cover teeth that are stained, discolored, chipped, cracked, broken or spaced. You can have veneers placed just because you want to change your smile or before a special occasion, like your wedding.
Who is a candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
We can perform an examination to determine if veneers are the right option for you. If your teeth are otherwise healthy, you’re probably a good candidate for veneers. However, if your front teeth are decayed or have other issues, we may recommend treatment before any veneers are made and placed. Most patients who would like veneers can have the procedure done effortlessly in our office.
What happens during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
The front teeth will be lightly buffed to make room for the veneers and improve their ability to adhere to the surface. Impressions, also known as molds, are taken and used to craft the new porcelain veneers. Your second visit involves placing the actual veneers carefully and smoothing out any rough edges or imperfections. You will be amazed at the way you look once the veneers are in place. You can feel completely confident in your smile knowing that you’ve successfully covered all flaws that have put a damper on your self-esteem.
