Why Porcelain Veneers?
The effective placement of porcelain veneers by a skilled dentist is one of the most effective ways to make a dramatic improvement to the aesthetics of your smile. Porcelain veneers hide the tooth defects of your front teeth with a thin shell of porcelain adhered to the surface. Veneers are only placed on the visible parts of your teeth, rather than covering the entire tooth. Veneers can be used to cover up stains and chips, and to hide spaces and gaps that may be present between your teeth. They can also be used to add length and more prominence to your natural teeth.
HOW IT WORKS
Your teeth are prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel that the traditional porcelain veneers will then cover. This is done to ensure that there is no dramatic, or unwanted change to your smile. The veneer is placed on top of that removed enamel which allows it to seamlessly fit in with the rest of your teeth. This is a common procedure we perform at our offices.
HOW LONG DO TRADITIONAL PORCELAIN VENEERS LAST?
Porcelain veneers have the potential to last an entire lifetime because they are resistant to chipping and staining. Much like your teeth, porcelain veneers must be maintained with regular flossing and brushing.
Benefits Of Veneers
Veneers are one of the easiest and quickest ways to correct cosmetic issues and prefect any smile! Porcelain veneers offer the most dramatic and longest-lasting effect of any cosmetic dental procedure. They often require removing a small amount of the outer enamel to allow for the thickness of the porcelain material, but the amount of material removed is far less than what is required for a crown.
The porcelain color of veneers makes them virtually unnoticeable to others. Many patients who were once reluctant to smile or speak in public have reported that they are far more confident to interact with others after receiving veneers.
