What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain used to correct and conceal chips, cracks, stains and gaps, creating flawless smiles. These custom veneers are affixed to the front surfaces of your teeth to recreate the entire smile line with one effective solution.
The Process for Getting Veneers
Your porcelain veneer design and placement will take just two treatment visits. During the first appointment, we will start by numbing the area around the teeth that will receive the veneers, but most patients could easily receive this minor preparatory treatment with no anesthesia at all. We simply remove a very thin layer of surface tooth enamel. This allows the implant to lay flat within the smile line. Once teeth are prepared, we capture impressions of your bite that will be used by our dental lab to craft your custom veneers. To protect prepared teeth and allow you to get used to the look of your veneer, we’ll place a temporary. Once we receive the final veneer from our lab, you can return to exchange the temporary for your flawless custom porcelain veneer.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneer Treatment
No cosmetic dentistry solution is right for every patient, but if you determine that porcelain veneers are the best option for your smile, you can expect to experience a number of benefits, including the following:
- Quick treatment time – in just two short treatment visits, you can get the smile of your dreams. The first appointment may take one or more hours to prepare your teeth and design your smile, but the second visit is usually less than an hour.
- Minimally invasive treatment – most patients wouldn’t even need local anesthesia to receive porcelain veneers as just a very small amount of surface enamel is removed.
- Complete smile makeover – with just two appointments and a minimally invasive treatment, you can completely transform your smile.
- Budget friendly & long lasting – porcelain veneers may help patients save money compared with more advanced orthodontic treatments and restorative services, and they will last as long as other restorations like dental crowns with proper care.
Maintaining Your Veneers
Once your porcelain veneers are in place, you may want to make some minor adjustments to your at-home hygiene routine. Mainly, we encourage patients to shift to products that will not wear the porcelain down too quickly, including soft bristled toothbrushes and minimally abrasive toothpaste. You may also want to use waxed dental floss to avoid catching around the edges of the veneer that may pull the veneer away from the tooth over time.
