What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are permanently adhered to the front of your teeth. You can think of veneers as a way to cover up imperfections in the front teeth. They can help you avoid the expense and inconvenience of more invasive procedures. With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last for roughly 10 years.
Why do you need Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ideal for correcting minor imperfections on the front teeth. Some of these imperfections include:
- Discoloration and staining
- Cracks, chips, and small fractures
- Gaps and spaces
- Uneven teeth
Veneers are easy to wear and provide the comfort that you want with the aesthetic benefits that you need. Veneers are incredibly durable and can withstand quite a bit of force, so with proper care, you can enjoy your new smile for years to come.
What makes you a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ideal for any patient that wants to completely transform their smile. Veneers are easy to have placed and require little to no anesthesia. Once your veneers have been made for you in a local dental lab, you can have a smile that’s completely transformed in a matter of minutes. Veneers are great for preventing the need for more invasive and costly procedures.
What happens during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
The procedure to have porcelain veneers made for you and placed is straightforward and noninvasive. First, the front teeth are gently buffed to make room for the thin veneers and to improve adhesion. Next, an impression will be made and sent off to a local dental lab. The veneers are custom made for you and shipped back to our office here at the Center for Advanced Dentistry. You will then come in for another appointment to have the veneers placed permanently for you. We will give you instructions on how to properly care for your new veneers to improve their overall longevity.
