Benefits of dental veneers
Porcelain veneers can be used to disguise aesthetic issues with your teeth, such as chips, uneven length, small gaps, and mildly crooked teeth. They can also address stubborn staining that won’t respond to traditional whitening treatments. Unlike dental crowns, veneers only require minimal tooth prep, allowing you to conserve more of your natural teeth.
Veneers provide an affordable option for complete smile makeovers because they can address issues with your dental arch’s entire visible portion with one appliance. While simple dental veneers can be made in the dentist’s office using dental bonding, we can also have durable porcelain veneers created for a more durable option. With the appropriate care, your porcelain veneers can last for over 15 years before they need to be replaced.
What to expect from the procedure
Porcelain veneers are thin shells created to cover the visible portion of your tooth. To prepare your teeth for veneers, your dentist will need to remove a small amount of your tooth enamel to make space for a comfortable fit. Next, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth to send to the lab, where they will craft your veneers in about two weeks. The process is entirely painless and typically takes 1-2 hours. Once the veneers are ready, you’ll return to the office to have them bonded into place.
While your veneers are stronger enough to handle day-to-day chewing, you should avoid biting directly into certain foods, such as raw veggies or apples. Your dentist will educate you on the best ways to protect your veneers so that you can get the maximum out of your investment.
