What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your existing teeth. Done in just two visits, they correct a variety of flaws at one time instead of requiring multiple procedures. Veneers are sometimes called “instant orthodontics” because of their ability to correct minor gaps and crowding without the need for braces.
Veneers are designed to look very natural. Dr. Do will work with you from the start to make sure you get the results you’re after, and that the color, size, and shape blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile.
What Kind of Flaws Can They Correct?
Porcelain veneers are an excellent way to conceal all of the following types of flaws:
- Small or oddly-shaped teeth
- Minor gaps and crowding
- Chips and cracks
- Severe stains or enamel defects such as pitting
- Worn down or uneven teeth
Are You a Good Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a great choice for many people. With that said, Dr. Do’s goal is to make sure your smile is healthy and beautiful, so she’ll make sure you have reasonably good oral health before making a recommendation. For example, if you have cavities or gum problems, she’ll want to address those issues first. She'll also discuss the importance of good oral hygiene to keep your veneers looking great over the long-term.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
As a cosmetic dentist, we often recommend veneers because of the many benefits they provide, including:
- Porcelain veneers are fast and allow you to transform your smile in just two visits.
- Porcelain is an ideal material because it’s durable and stain-resistant. That means you won’t have to worry about your new smile being easily stained by coffee, red wine, etc.
- Veneers have the ability to correct multiple imperfections with a single procedure.
- Porcelain also reflects light the same way natural teeth do, so it won’t look fake or out-of-place.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last and How Should You Maintain Them?
In addition, wear a custom-made nightguard if you clench and grind at night and avoid chewing on ice, hard candies, pens, etc. And if you’re eating something hard or crunchy like carrots, cut them up into smaller pieces beforehand so you don’t have to bite directly into them with your front teeth.
