What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain. They can be affixed to the front facing surfaces of teeth in order to correct and conceal any number of chips, cracks, stains, and gaps in the smile. With only minimal preparation, you can completely change the appearance of your smile with porcelain veneers.
Who is a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Patients with healthy teeth and gums will be considered good candidates for porcelain veneers in numerous situations including:
- Those whose teeth will not brighten with traditional teeth whitening plans
- Those whose bite is functioning properly, but they have unevenly spaced or misaligned teeth
- Those who have numerous chips, cracks, stains, and gaps in teeth following years of wear and tear
How are Porcelain Veneers Placed?
Porcelain veneers will need to be placed over the course of two dental appointments. During your initial visit, a small amount of surface enamel is removed. This allows the veneer to lay flat within your natural smile line. Then, we take impressions of your prepared teeth. These impressions, as well as our custom veneer design, are used by a trusted dental lab to craft high-quality veneers. To protect teeth and allow you to get used to the look of your new veneer, we’ll place a temporary. When your final restoration is received from the lab, you’ll return to exchange the temporary for a custom porcelain veneer leaving you with a picture-perfect smile.
