What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can cover up imperfections and minor flaws at the front of your smile. If you’re ready for a complete smile makeover, these veneers can be made to flawlessly match your existing smile while improving what you already have. If your front teeth are stained, discolored, cracked, chipped or have gaps and spaces between them, it might be time to consider porcelain veneers. Veneers typically last for 10 or more years depending on the amount of wear they receive.
Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
If you’re looking to transform your smile, veneers can be the best option for you. You may be looking to change your look for an upcoming event, like a wedding or a reunion. You may be tired of the way that you look and are sick of hiding away your smile. Veneers are custom-made for each individual patient, so they look natural and realistic.
Who is a candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Most patients who want or need veneers can have the procedure done at their own convenience. Your front teeth should be otherwise healthy enough so that veneers can be attached to them. If you need additional treatment, we will suggest this before having the veneers placed. Veneers are best suited for adult patients wanting to dramatically change their smile.
What happens during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
The first step is to file down the existing teeth to make room for the new veneers. We then take impressions so that we are able to create your brand new porcelain veneers. Your second visit into the office involves placing the restorations. This is done tooth-by-tooth to ensure that it looks as natural as possible. We then make any adjustments to the veneers as needed and allow you to see your brand new smile. Your new veneers can last for many years without showing any signs of wear or damage.
