Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are custom-made, thin shells made from porcelain. They are bonded to your teeth for a long-lasting, natural-looking smile. Veneers can fix a number of different problems, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Worn-down teeth
Procedure of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells of dental ceramic that are bonded directly to the teeth. The veneers provide a new, attractive appearance while also providing strength and resilience for the teeth. The veneer procedure typically takes three visits to complete.
During the first visit, which will likely involve taking x-rays and impressions of the teeth, the dental team will create temporary veneers. The temporary veneers will be worn while the custom veneers are being crafted.
During the second visit, the temporary veneers are removed and the custom veneers are cemented to the teeth. When the veneers are cemented, they will look and feel like natural teeth.
Cleaning and Caring for Veneers
Caring for your veneers is easy. Patients can brush and floss normally, and can also eat a normal diet. This means that veneers will not cause oral hygiene issues, but patients should still practice good oral hygiene practices.
Patients should still visit the dentist twice a year for their examinations and teeth cleanings. During these appointments, the cleanings can be focused on the veneers for a thorough clean.
Any issues or concerns with your veneers can be brought to your dental professional.
