Porcelain Veneers: In the Know

If you have discolored, worn, or crooked teeth you may be a candidate for dental veneers. Dental veneers can be used to treat one or more teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing smile. We use dental veneers that are crafted from porcelain to reflect light and offer a more natural restoration for patients. Porcelain veneers are adhered to the front of teeth to improve their appearance.

Porcelain veneers can be used to address:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Tooth gaps
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or too large

Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent restoration. Dental bonding is also another option for patients who want to fix cosmetic concerns but don’t want to commit to porcelain veneers. We will help you to find a solution that works best for your specific needs.

Treatment with Porcelain Veneers

The procedure is simple. In most cases, receiving porcelain veneers will require at least two visits to our dentist’s office. During your first appointment, we will remove a tiny layer of the surface of your tooth so we can bond the veneer to the surface without changing the feel of your teeth. During the second appointment, we will adhere the veneers to your teeth.

In some cases, the results can last up to 20 years, making it a very effective choice to correct many different cosmetic or functional flaws. Caring for your veneers is just like caring for your natural teeth. It is important to maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine and schedule dental visits.

Once the porcelain veneers are complete, we will ensure their fit before adhering them on to the patient’s teeth. The porcelain veneers are then polished for a natural shine. Patients should continue to brush and floss their teeth twice a day as well as schedule regular dental appointments to keep their veneers looking white and bright.
