<b>What are Porcelain Veneers?</b>
Veneers are helpful in creating a new smile without invasive or inconvenient appointments. Veneers are made out of thin shells of porcelain that are then attached to the very fronts of your teeth. They help to cover gaps, spaces, discoloration and staining that has you feeling badly about the way that you look. Most veneers can last for upwards of 10 years before they may need to be replaced.
<b>Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?</b>
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic option for covering imperfections and flaws at the front of your smile. They’re ideal for most healthy adult patients wanting a quick and durable way to transform the way that they look. Some of the things that veneers can cover include:
• Uneven Teeth
• Slight Orthodontic Problems
<b>Who is a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?</b>
Most patients who want veneers can safely have the procedure done. We will perform an examination to determine if you may benefit from veneers. Veneers often require little to no anesthetic, so they’re a viable option for patients wanting a quick and noninvasive way to change their smile.
<b>What happens during the Porcelain Veneer procedure?</b>
We begin by gently buffing the front of your teeth to make room for the new veneers. We then take impressions of your smile and use these to create new porcelain veneers. You will come back in for a second visit to have the actual veneers placed. They are made to mimic your existing, natural smile but without any flaws or imperfections. We then adhere the veneers to the front of your teeth and smooth them down as needed. The procedure is incredibly easy, quick and requires little to no local anesthetic. You can then leave the office feeling completely confident in your brand new smile and the way that you look thanks to your new veneers.
