What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-colored shells. They’re typically made of dental porcelain, a material chosen for its remarkable ability to resemble natural tooth enamel while being incredibly durable and resistant to staining. When these shells are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth, they can address a wide variety of aesthetic flaws at once, including: Small but noticeable chips and cracks Disproportionately tiny or irregularly shaped teeth Stains or discoloration unaffected by teeth whitening treatment Minor gaps between teeth Slightly crooked or rotated teeth If you're looking for a way to give your whole smile a complete makeover all at once, you might be a great candidate for porcelain veneers. They're an excellent way to improve your entire grin in one fell swoop.

The Process of Receiving Veneers

The first step in the veneers process is attending a consultation with Dr. Le to discuss your smile goals and determine whether veneers are the ideal way to achieve them. Should you decide to move forward with veneers, we can then prepare your affected teeth by removing some enamel, just a tiny sliver, so that the veneers won't feel or look bulky once they're placed. Next, we take impressions to design a model of your teeth. This model is then sent to a dental lab so your veneers can be custom-made to fit your unique grin. We might place temporary veneers in the meantime. After two or three weeks, you'll return to our office. Your temporaries are switched out for your permanent veneers, and you're sent out into the world to enjoy your new and improved smile.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Some of the advantages you can expect to gain from getting porcelain veneers include: Natural appearance - Each veneer is custom-made to suit your smile by taking your surrounding teeth, face shape, and skin tone into account. Resistance to staining - Dental porcelain isn't quite as porous as tooth enamel, meaning your veneers won't become discolored nearly as quickly as your natural teeth would. Porcelain is highly durable - Provided you take proper care of your veneers with regular at-home oral hygiene and dental checkups, they can last 10+ years before they need a replacement. Minimally invasive treatment - Compared to dental crowns, which cover the entire visible portion of the tooth, veneers only cover the front. As a result, less enamel must be removed before placement.

FAQ’s

Yes. If they become worn, torn, or unfitted, you’ll get a replacement. The treatment can’t be reversed because we trim the natural enamel, and your tooth would have to be covered to protect it from decay.

We prep your teeth and extract a small amount of the enamel from the front and sides of the teeth. A mold of the teeth is produced, and a customized shade is chosen to suit your smile. When the veneers are ready, you’ll visit us for a fitting. We examine the fit and shape of the veneers to ensure that all fits correctly. If necessary, we’ll perform adjustments for a better fit. Your teeth are rinsed, and the veneers are bonded on the tooth.

If you take proper care of veneers, they can last 10 to 30 years. Porcelain isn’t indestructible and will have to be handled with care.
