What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain that are used to dramatically improve the appearance of a damaged or flawed smile. Bonded to the front of your teeth using a special cement, veneers can last for over 10 years when taken care of properly.
Porcelain is the preferred material because it allows the veneers to be made thinner. As a result, less of your tooth’s structure is removed during the bonding process. This makes the treatment minimally invasive while also protecting the integrity of your tooth. Porcelain also closely mimics the appearance of enamel to enjoy natural-looking results.
Different Types of Porcelain Veneers
After an initial consultation, Dr. Dhillon discusses the results you want to achieve to create a customized treatment plan. She will help you determine which type of veneer meets your needs while also giving you the results you want.
Traditional Porcelain Veneers
Traditional veneers often require a small amount of enamel to be removed to ensure they sit flush on your teeth. This makes the treatment irreversible; however, they tend to last longer than other types of veneers. Although the procedure is minimally invasive, a local anesthetic is often used to ensure your comfort.
In some cases, your teeth may not need to be prepared before bonding the veneers, but there are still some instances when modifications must be made. If any changes are required, they are often minimal, allowing the treatment to be reversible if you change your mind.
What is the Procedure Like?
By utilizing the skill and compassion of our dental team, receiving veneers is virtually painless. The process generally requires two to three appointments; however, some cases can be completed in a single day.
During the first visit, we discuss how you want your smile to look and prepare your teeth by gently removing a small layer of enamel. This is done to accommodate the size of the veneers and prevent your teeth from looking abnormally large or bulky. Impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to a dental laboratory, where your veneers are custom-made. While they are being created, we provide you with temporary ones to maintain your smile.
When the veneers are back at our office, we make any final adjustments and permanently bond them to the front of your teeth.
What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Overall, veneers improve the color, size, shape, and proportion of your teeth. They can be used to correct several imperfections, including:
- Abnormally shaped or shorter than average teeth.
- Breaks, cracks, or fractures.
- Tooth discoloration.
- Minor alignment concerns.
- Gaps between your teeth.
Veneers are an excellent option for redesigning the look of your entire smile.
