Veneers are thin, custom made pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions. Porcelain veneers can correct many cosmetic problems. They can improve size, shape, and color of teeth. They can also close spaces between teeth, as well as lengthen or shorten teeth. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
- Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
- Crooked teeth.
- Misshapen teeth.
- Severely discolored or stained teeth.
- Teeth that are too small or large.
- Unwanted or uneven spaces.
- Worn or chipped teeth.
Getting veneers usually requires no more than two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and your dentist. You will receive care instructions for veneers. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers. With the proper treatment, your porcelain veneers can last 20 years or more.
Do tooth imperfections such as gaps, chips, and tooth discoloration keep you from showing off your smile? Porcelain veneers are a way to correct these imperfections and make over your smile. Veneers are made out of durable porcelain and bonded to the desired teeth. Before the porcelain shells are bonded, we’ll remove some enamel to ensure a proper fit. Because we remove some enamel, this procedure is irreversible. But we’ll discuss your smile goals and your desired results before we begin to make sure that you’ll love your new smile.
