Porcelain Veneers

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are attached to the front of your smile. They can cover imperfections and flaws in your smile that make you feel negatively about your appearance. Despite being thin, they are incredibly durable and can last for up to 10 years. They can be adhered to otherwise healthy front teeth that are stained, discolored, chipped, cracked, or unevenly spaced.

Why would Porcelain Veneers be needed?

There are several reasons for why you might need or want veneers. Some people have veneers placed because they’re ready to transform their smile, while others choose the procedure specifically for an upcoming event, such as a wedding. Some of the imperfections that veneers can cover include:

  • Spaces and gaps
  • Discoloration and stains
  • Uneven teeth
  • Cracks and chips

Who is a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

The teeth that the veneers are attached to should be otherwise healthy. If there is decay or other problems found, we’ll recommend other treatments to correct this before the veneers are placed. Most people who want veneers can easily and safely have the procedure done. This procedure is ideal for patients who want to transform their smile in a relatively noninvasive way.

What happens during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?

We begin by lightly contouring the front teeth to improve the overall fit of the veneers and helps the porcelain adhere to the teeth. Impressions are then taken and used to make your new veneers. Your next appointment involves placing the actual veneers. We carefully attach each veneer to the teeth , ensuring that they look completely natural and realistic. The procedure is incredibly noninvasive, and most patients won’t even need local anesthetic. With proper care and oral hygiene, you’ll find that your new veneers will last for up to a decade before they may need to be replaced. Replacing the veneers is as easy as removing the old and making new ones.

If you think you might need or want porcelain veneers, call our office today and we will be happy to schedule you to come in for a consultation appointment.
