Porcelain veneers are thin restorations that can be added to the front of your smile. They help to cover up flaws and minor imperfections that might have you feeling badly about your appearance. Veneers are made specifically for each patient, so they feel and look completely natural. You can expect the new veneers to last for about a decade before replacement is necessary.
The reason you might want or need veneers is because the front of your smile is flawed. Your teeth might be cracked, stained, discolored, unevenly spaced or unsightly. Rather than undergo extensive procedures to fix these issues, veneers will cover them up and provide you with the full and healthy smile you've always wanted. Veneers are best for adults wanting a complete cosmetic change to their appearance.
Your front teeth can be flawed, but they should be otherwise healthy enough to hold onto the veneers. If they are decayed or severely damaged, we might suggest other types of treatments before you can have veneers placed. With the help of an exam, we can determine if porcelain veneers are right for you. Most of our patients who want veneers can safely have the procedure done.
The veneer procedure will begin with a complete consultation and examination. We will then prep your front teeth for the veneers. This entails buffing them down slightly so that the veneers fit properly over them. Impressions are taken and used to make your permanent veneers. You will come back into the office to have the new veneers placed over your smile. You can brush and floss around the veneers as you would normally. With the right care and attention, you can expect the porcelain veneers to last for about a decade.
