Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain that are custom-crafted to fit and adhere to the front surface of your teeth. These shells are designed with the purpose of improving your smile by enhancing tooth color and reshaping them.

With their versatility, veneers offer a flexible solution for various dental issues and can be considered as an alternative to crowns. By altering the shape and appearance of your teeth, they can create an appealing smile.

While veneers are resilient and have a long lifespan, they are not permanent and might need replacement at some point, similar to other dental restorations. Nevertheless, with proper maintenance, veneers can grant you a stunning smile that endures for many years.

Reasons for porcelain veneers:

  1. Aesthetics: Porcelain veneers are designed to improve the appearance of teeth. They can address various cosmetic concerns such as discoloration, stains, chipped or misshapen teeth, and gaps between teeth. Veneers provide a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing smile.

  2. Durability: Porcelain veneers are known for their strength and durability. They are resistant to stains and can withstand daily wear and tear, making them a long-lasting solution for improving the appearance of teeth.

  3. Customization: Each porcelain veneer is custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly. This ensures a precise fit and allows for a seamless integration with your natural teeth, enhancing the overall appearance and function of your smile.

  4. Minimally invasive: Compared to other dental restorations like crowns, porcelain veneers require minimal tooth preparation. The dentist usually needs to remove a small amount of enamel from the front surface of the teeth to accommodate the veneers. This preserves the natural tooth structure to a great extent.

  5. Stain resistance: Porcelain veneers have excellent stain-resistant properties. They are less likely to be discolored by food, beverages, or smoking, allowing you to maintain a brighter and whiter smile over time.

  6. Versatility: Veneers offer a versatile solution for a wide range of dental concerns. They can address multiple cosmetic issues simultaneously, providing a comprehensive smile makeover.

What does getting porcelain veneers involve?

Typically, the process of obtaining veneers can be completed in two visits, and the use of anesthesia is generally not required. The teeth will be gently polished and reshaped to create space for the veneers. An impression or mold of the teeth will be taken, and in collaboration with the dentist, you will choose the desired shade or color for your veneers.

During the second visit, the teeth will be thoroughly cleansed using specialized cleaning solutions to ensure a strong bond with the veneers. A bonding cement will be applied between the tooth and the veneer, and a special light will be used to harden and set the bond, ensuring its long-lasting strength.

You will receive care instructions for veneers.  Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
