Porcelain Veneers for an incredible smile

Dental Veneers are known by many names. They may be called Porcelain Veneers, Laminate Veneers, and Lumineers. Veneers are thin shells that are laid onto the teeth and bonded to the surface. Although they can be made of different materials, porcelain is frequently used because of its durability and realistic appearance. Veneers are a more conservative alternative to dental crowns since they require less removal of the tooth’s original surface. With Veneers in place, cosmetic dentistry patients can expect straighter, whiter, and more even teeth.

If your smile is hidden behind your hand or closed lips, a vital part of your communication is interrupted. Feeling unhappy with the appearance of your smile? Do you have misshapen, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth? Are they stained, discolored, or naturally dark? Are they spaced too far apart, creating unattractive spaces? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution for you. They are among the most beautiful, natural looking smile enhancement procedures available.

Porcelain Veneers Procedure

 During the initial visit, the patient and dentist discuss the process of placing porcelain veneers and the options available (e.g. types and shades of veneers). On your next visit, the dentist removes a very small layer of each tooth’s outer enamel. A local anesthesia may be used but is typically not necessary. The dentist makes a mold of the teeth and then sends it to a dental lab where they create customized dental veneers for the teeth. The lab prepares the porcelain veneers in roughly 7 to 10 days. During this time, the teeth have a slightly different appearance because of the removal of the outer layer of enamel. Some patients choose to have temporary restorations placed on their teeth, but this step is usually not necessary. Once the porcelain veneers have returned from the lab, the patient makes a final dental visit. The dentist applies the veneer to the tooth using a bonding material. When exposed to light, this bonding material dries and hardens.

After the Porcelain Veneers Procedure

Cosmetic dentistry patients may experience some sensitivity in the teeth, especially when contacting hot or cold substances. This sensitivity should lessen within two weeks. If you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep, your dentist can fit you with a mouth guard that will protect your teeth. Porcelain veneers are quite strong and can withstand considerable force when a patient bites down, but they may fracture or break if twisted. Patients should therefore avoid hard or sharp foods such as ice or pistachios that may cause undue stress. Dental veneers should be cared for in much the same way as normal teeth; this includes daily brushing, flossing, and periodic check-ups with a dentist. Given the proper care, porcelain veneers can preserve a smile for decades.
