What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are perfect for covering imperfections and flaws on the front teeth. They are made out of durable, natural-looking porcelain, so you can rest assured that they’ll always look their best. You may choose veneers because your teeth are cracked, stained, chipped, or discolored, or because you want to completely transform your smile. Veneers can last for about a decade before it’s recommended they be replaced.
Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
Veneers are ideal for adult patients who are ready to change the look and feel of their smile. They are great for anyone who wants a relatively long-lasting restoration, that can help to boost their confidence. Some things that veneers help to cover include:
- Spaces and gaps between teeth
- Discoloration and staining
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Unsightly, uneven teeth
“I have never had better. Usually my mouth is sore and hurts after dentist but I feel great. Such a nice staff.i highly recommend them.“
What makes you a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Most adults are good candidates for the veneer procedure. If you’re unhappy with your smile, these thin and highly-durable restorations are a great choice. An exam is needed to determine if veneers are right for you. Some patients will need other procedures prior to having veneers placed.
What happens during the Porcelain Veneer procedure?
First, we will buff the front teeth to make room for the new veneers. Local anesthetic may or may not be needed for the actual procedure. Impressions will be taken, and sent to a lab where brand new veneers are made for you. You will come in for a second appointment to have the permanent veneers placed. They will be adjusted slightly to improve the fit and feel of the restorations. With proper care, you can expect the veneers to last for about a decade, and provide you with a smile that you can feel confident showing off. Veneers are realistic-looking, and can help to totally transform your entire smile.
