Porcelain veneers are designed to cover the front teeth, hiding away flaws and imperfections without the need for more invasive work. Veneers are thin and delicate, yet incredibly durable. They normally last for about a decade or longer depending on the amount of wear they receive each day. Veneers are a simple, yet drastic cosmetic enhancement that can change your entire look.
WHY WOULD PORCELAIN VENEERS BE NEEDED?
Your front teeth might be stained, discolored, cracked or chipped. You might be tired of your appearance and want a quick, dramatic change. Likewise, you might be attending a big event, like your wedding, and you want to look your absolute best. Veneers are ideal for those looking for a quick, yet lasting change.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR PORCELAIN VENEERS?
In order for porcelain veneers to adhere properly, your front teeth should be otherwise healthy. Veneers are best for adult patients, so they aren’t necessarily an option for children and teens. We will examine your teeth to determine if veneers are right for you. Most patients who want veneers placed can easily come in to have the procedure completed.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PORCELAIN VENEER PROCEDURE?
We begin by roughing up and buffing the front teeth to make room for the veneers. Impressions are taken and used to craft new porcelain veneers just for you. You’ll be scheduled to come in for a second appointment to have the veneers placed. Veneer placement is a delicate art that is done to ensure each tooth looks as natural as possible. You’ll then be able to see your new smile and relish in the fact that you look younger, healthier and more attractive. Your veneers can and should be brushed and flossed between like your normal teeth, and you can expect them to last for roughly a decade before you may need to have them all replaced professionally.
