Much of cosmetic dentistry, such as teeth whitening, is intended to offer a convenient and efficient way to improve your smile. With porcelain veneers, we can give you the smile of your dreams that will last for many years to come!
Porcelain veneers are the perfect balance between improving your smile and conserving a maximum amount of your natural tooth structure because they cover only the front of the tooth.
Veneers can be used to treat many different cosmetic concerns, including chipped, broken, discolored, or smaller-than-average teeth. Some people get one veneer to cover a cracked or chipped tooth, others get between six to eight veneers to create an even, symmetrical smile.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are paper-thin shells of ceramic that are bonded directly to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are crafted using advanced digital imaging technology. Porcelain veneers are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Do porcelain veneers look like normal teeth?
When bonded to your teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are practically undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, and even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed compared to other restorative options. And, they don’t require any special cleaning – floss, and brush as you usually do, and adhere to your cleaning and exam schedule.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
With the right maintenance and upkeep, porcelain veneers can last for over a decade. To prolong the life of your veneers, refrain from using your teeth as “tools” to “bite” open and “cut” materials. If accidental damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the affected part of the veneer.
What is the process of getting veneers?
Dr. Price will discuss which teeth you want to replace and will do a thorough exam and x-rays to ensure your teeth can accept a veneer. At the next appointment, he will prepare your teeth, which usually requires scraping a small amount of enamel from the teeth to make room for the veneer. He will then make an exact impression, which is sent to a dental lab that custom-makes the porcelain veneers. It may take the lab several one or two weeks. When they are ready, he’ll place your veneers, adjust, and clean them.
