Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth
shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a
professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth
to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and
smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution
in treating many dental conditions.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are
not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable
and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
Severely discolored or stained teeth.
Teeth that are too small or large.
Unwanted or uneven spaces.
Worn or chipped teeth.
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to
complete the process. The teeth are prepared by shaping the surface to
allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the
teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the
dentist. Temporary veneers are placed to wear for approximately three
weeks while the dental laboratory fabricates the veneers.
On the second visit the veneers will be
inspected for accurate fit, proper contour, shape, and color. They will
then be permanently bonded into place.
You will receive care instructions for
veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid
in the life of your new veneers.
