Dramatic smile transformations call for the combination of several treatments or the use of a single cosmetic treatment: Porcelain veneers. Patients who wish to improve a diverse array of esthetic problems, from chips and cracks to spacing, discoloration, and even tooth shape may accomplish their smile goals in as few as two visits by choosing veneers.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are very thin tooth-shaped shells that are placed over the front of your teeth. Unlike a dental crown, they do not not cover your entire tooth, but create the look of improved teeth. Composed of translucent porcelain layers, the veneer is created by an expert ceramicist. Veneers can change the shade and shape of your teeth.
How Treatment Works
We will take impressions of your teeth to design the restoration. Your dentist will be able to show you what your smile will look like with veneers. You will typically visit us at least twice to complete this treatment. During your follow-up visit, your dentist will permanently bond the veneers to your smile.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers offer patients a powerful cosmetic solution because they can often accomplish the work of several other treatments. We often suggest veneers for patients who wish to improve one or more of the following:
- Small cracks
- Small chips
- Uneven tooth length
- Awkward or unsightly tooth shape or length
- Discolored teeth, particularly those that respond poorly to teeth whitening
- Small spaces between teeth – veneers can fill the spaces without the need for orthodontics
