Natural-Looking Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. Since we can customize your veneers, they can be used to correct many different cosmetic concerns, including:
- Uneven spaces between teeth
- Poorly proportioned teeth
- Chipped, cracked, and broken teeth
- Teeth that are severely stained and resistant to whitening
- Misaligned teeth
Veneers are long lasting and stain resistant. With proper oral hygiene and professional dental care, a veneer can last between 10 and 20 years.
Your new veneer will function just like a natural tooth; however, you do need to take care when biting into hard or crunchy foods to avoid chipping or breaking the veneer.
Placing Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are very thin, so we need to remove only a small bit of tooth structure to ensure that they fit naturally against your tooth and gum line. We will take an impression along with photos of your smile and send it to our talented porcelain ceramist who will custom craft your veneers.
While your new veneers are being fabricated, you’ll wear natural-looking temporaries. When they’re ready, we’ll have you return to our office for their placement. In many cases, we can complete the veneers process in just two visits.
As the name implies, no-prep veneers require little to no alteration of your natural tooth structure. No-prep veneers are a conservative cosmetic option that can be used to correct many of the same issues as conventional veneers. Just like veneers, we can use this conservative option to close spaces, change the shape and color of your teeth, and even out your alignment.
No-prep veneers are custom crafted in a dental lab just like traditional veneers and are bonded to the front facings of the teeth. There is minimal preparation involved, so we don’t need to numb the teeth for the procedure. No-prep veneers are a conservative solution that corrects flaws, enhances your smile, and offers the added advantage of preserving healthy tooth structure.
You may have heard of Lumineers, which are one type of no-prep veneer. If you’re interested in learning more about Lumineers, please give us a call.
