What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are designed to cover front teeth that are less than perfect and flawed. Veneers are made of porcelain, so they will match your existing teeth perfectly, providing you the benefits of these cosmetic restorations. Most veneers can last for 10 or more years with the proper care, so you’ll have a smile that you can trust for years to come. Veneers can be used to cover up imperfections like cracks, chips, discoloration, stains and unevenness.
Why would Porcelain Veneers be needed?
Veneers are thin, yet durable and are used to cover the anterior (front) teeth. Veneers are ideal for patients who want a quick and effective cosmetic option for perfecting their smile. Some of the issues and flaws that veneers can cover include:
- Cracked or chipped front teeth
- Discoloration and deep staining
- Uneven or unsightly-looking teeth
- Gaps and large spaces
Who is a candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Most of our patients who are interested in veneers can safely have them made and placed over their front teeth. It’s not uncommon for patients to want veneers before a big event, like a wedding, so that they can look their absolute best. Your front teeth should be otherwise healthy and free of areas of decay. We will examine your smile prior to making any type of veneer for you.
What happens during the Porcelain Veneer procedure?
The veneer procedure begins by slightly roughing down and buffing the fronts of your teeth. We then take impressions that provide us with molds to make your new veneers. You will come in for a second visit to have the permanent veneers placed. We can make minor adjustments to the veneers in-office. You will be amazed at just how different you can look after the veneers have been placed. Your new veneers will last for about a decade before they may need to be fully replaced. You still need to brush and floss around your veneers each day to prevent the underlying teeth from becoming decayed.
