How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
Each porcelain veneer created is designed not just with your unique smile in mind, but your facial shape as well. When creating a veneer, the shade, color, size and shape of your neighboring teeth are all accounted for in order to create a smile that looks natural. After completing a cosmetic consultation with one of our dentists and confirming that veneers are right for you, they’ll begin preparing your tooth to receive a porcelain crown. This involves removing a very small amount of enamel so that the veneers can sit flush. You’ll be given a set of temporary restorations to wear as your permanent veneers are being created. After about two weeks have passed, your permanent veneers will be available and ready for placement at your second appointment!
What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers offer a highly customizable and all-in-one solution for a variety of dental imperfections, including permanent stains that cannot be removed with teeth whitening, chips, cracks, gaps and even minor misalignment. This effectively makes porcelain veneers as one of the best ways to cut costs on cosmetic procedures. Plus, instead of going through several appointments or even months of treatment just to achieve the smile you want, you may determine that you can do so in just two appointments over the next two weeks!
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for You?
Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile, but it’s important to recognize if they are right for you before beginning treatment. For one, the removal of enamel in order to make room for the veneers is permanent, which makes this treatment a commitment. If you want to retain as much of your tooth enamel as possible or you suffer from tooth sensitivity, another treatment may be a better option. Furthermore, all cosmetic treatments should be postponed until you’ve confirmed with our office that your oral health is in good shape.
No matter what your dental needs are, we’ll always make sure that we go over cosmetic treatments in great detail so you can make an informed decision on the best smile enhancements for you.
