Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
Veneers are often needed or desired by patients who are unhappy with their smiles. You may want veneers placed to transform your smile before a big event, like a class reunion or wedding, or may just want to achieve the smile you have always dreamed of. Veneers are relatively durable considering their thin nature, and they look completely natural when properly placed. They are made from porcelain, so they can be matched to your existing smile, or made brighter according to your needs.
What makes you a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
You will come in for an exam prior to having your new veneers both made and placed. Veneers are considered a cosmetic option, so they aren’t meant to restore or correct dental problems. Some of the different reasons you may choose veneers include:
- You have spaces and gaps between front teeth
- Your teeth are severely discolored and stained
- Your teeth are chipped, cracked, or broken
- You want an even, beautiful, and bright smile
- You are ready for a smile makeover
- You’re looking for a minimally-invasive alternative to other procedures
Our one-on-one approach ensures that each of our patients receives the kind care and compassion that they need. By offering a variety of procedures and treatments in one conveniently located office, we are able to cater to each member of your family.
What happens during the Porcelain Veneer procedure?
Veneers require either a small amount of local anesthetic, or in some cases no anesthetic at all. We will start by buffing the front teeth to make room for the new veneers. Impressions are taken and used to craft your new porcelain veneers. You will come back into our office to have the veneers placed. We will file down and smooth the veneers, as needed, to improve the fit and feel. You can expect your new veneers to last for about a decade before it’s recommended they be replaced. You will love the way that your veneers look, and how they transform your smile.
