Learn about porcelain veneers including procedure information and costs before making an appointment.
What are porcelain veneers?
One goal of veneers is to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted by removing as little tooth structure as possible. Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that replaces your natural enamel layer on the front side of your tooth. They can improve color, shape, size, and alignment of your teeth. Not everyone is a candidate for veneers, so it is important to speak to you dentist if you are interested in this procedure.
The term “veneer” refers to anything that may cover a tooth in order to make it more aesthetically pleasing. Although veneers are available in a composite form, porcelain veneers are longer lasting and stronger. Veneers can change the color, shape, and size of your teeth to create your ideal smile.
Who can benefit from porcelain veneers?
Recently this procedure has been gaining popularity as an alternative to more invasive and complicated procedures. Porcelain veneers are a popular choice for people who are looking to cover lasting discoloration and or staining, as well as realign teeth that may not quite fit the mold of an ideal smile.
How the process of receiving porcelain veneers works.
Porcelain veneers are completed in multiple appointments, to ensure the optimal fit and function.
After the veneers have been created, they are placed on the patient’s teeth and carefully aligned before being cemented into place. Because this step is so crucial, it is imperative that we pay close attention to the way the veneers look before they are set.
Veneers are an effective solution to a seemingly difficult problem. In the end patients are able to walk away with a rejuvenated smile!
