Porcelain Veneers

Apr 12 • 1 minute read

Natural Look, Comfortable Fit

Dental veneers are thin, shell-like devices that work great to address a variety of conditions affecting a smile’s appearance. Patients experiencing tooth discoloration, a chipped tooth, or minor misalignment should discuss receiving a veneer with their dentist. 

The procedure does not alter the tooth as extensively as a crown treatment. Devices made from porcelain also secure a great fit and more accurate color matching. The ending result is a straighter, healthier-looking smile worthy of showing off with confidence.

How Do I Receive a Porcelain Veneer?

Cosmetic enhancements like veneers require an initial consultation and a specialized exam to confirm this type of procedure suits you. Oral structures like your gums are checked during the office visit to ensure they are healthy enough to receive the new apparatus. 

Once the doctor confirms you as a candidate for veneers, a customized “blueprint” of the area is taken using X-rays and molds. The outlay of your smile is submitted to a lab to produce quality restorations for each patient. The veneer is placed by the doctor in-office to ensure a proper fit before bonding and completing the treatment.

What Are the Benefits?

Porcelain veneers are discrete restorations able to be combined with deep cleanings or teeth whitening to transform your smile completely. For some patients, veneers are the perfect solution for minor to moderate issues using a conservative approach towards preparing your natural tooth.

The more of your original smile is salvaged, the fewer complications you are liable to experience later. Veneers will always be checked during future check-up visits also to ensure they are correctly operating.      

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Porcelain is biocompatible and durable, making it an ideal choice for most restorative devices. On average, a dental veneer will provide a decade of a straighter, brighter tooth when paired with our recommended care.
