Do You Have Questions About Porcelain Veneers?

Did you know that we have a single cosmetic treatment that can completely alter the color and shape of your teeth? With porcelain veneers, we can transform your smile in as little as two visits. In today’s blog, we’re going to discuss the benefits of restorations and what to expect from the placement process.

How Veneers Transform Smiles

Veneers fit over the front and sides of each tooth. In doing so, they completely change the shape and shade of them. We use porcelain to create them for a number of reasons. Porcelain is strong and durable. The material also contains stain-resistant properties and mimics the translucent nature of tooth enamel. We can also shade them to better blend with your smile.

We can use the restorations to mask permanent teeth stains. Also known as intrinsic stains, they rarely respond to teeth whitening. We can also reshape malformed or damaged teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and close gaps between the teeth. We’ve even used them to correct the appearance of minor misalignment.

Placement and Maintenance

Before we place them we first prepare the teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel. Doing so makes room for the restoration. We take detailed impressions, which will be used by an expert ceramist at a dental lab to fabricate the veneers. The patient returns to the office when the restorations are complete. We check the fit make any necessary adjustments, and then place them with a powerful bonding agent. Once in place, you can enjoy decades of quality smile improvement. For a more cost-effective approach, we can use the restorations for the front facing teeth and dental bonding for the side and rear teeth.
