Veneers are sheaths of porcelain that conceal cosmetic flaws. The custom crafted porcelain veneers are affixed to the front facing surfaces of teeth. Once in place, they will look and function just like healthy tooth structures.
Porcelain veneers are effective cosmetic treatments in a number of situations, including:
Porcelain veneers are placed over the course of two appointments. During the initial visit, we’ll need to prepare your teeth. This involves us removing a small amount of the surface tooth enamel in order to allow the veneer to lay flat in the smile line. Then, we capture impressions of your bite. These impressions will be used by our lab to create your custom porcelain veneers. Before you leave the office, we’ll need to place a temporary veneer. This protects your smile and allows you to get used to the look and feel of your veneers. In one or a few weeks, we’ll receive the veneers from our dental lab. You’ll return to our office for the second appointment, and we will remove your temporary and exchange it for the flawless custom porcelain veneers.
After porcelain veneer treatment, your smile will look flawless for years to come. The high quality porcelain materials are stain resistant, so even if you regularly consume staining foods and drinks, your smile will stay sparkling white. Like natural enamel, the porcelain will wear down over time. To keep the veneers in place longer, we recommend switching to softer toothbrushes and less abrasive toothpaste. You might also want to use a waxed floss to avoid tugging the edges of your veneers. You should visit our team twice a year for exams and professional cleanings. During these visits, we can work with you to maximize your at-home oral hygiene routine. If you engage in athletics or experience teeth grinding and clenching, it’s important that you use mouthguards as directed.
