Porcelain and ceramic veneers are tooth-colored shells that can drastically improve the appearance of your teeth by enhancing their color, shape, and size. Veneers replicate the look of beautiful natural teeth without invasive dental work or downtime. Your dentist creates custom-fit veneers to meet your personalized needs and desired outcome.
You might choose porcelain or ceramic veneers if your natural teeth are:
Veneers not only restore the appearance and function of your natural teeth, but they are also durable and long-lasting options to maintain your smile. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, your dentist is only required to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth before placing the veneers.
Veneers are an excellent option for anyone who wishes to cover dental imperfections to achieve a more beautiful smile. To determine if you are eligible for the procedure, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums and take dental X-rays to formulate a plan to achieve your desired results. Other similar cosmetic dentistry options include dental bonding, crowns, bridges, dental implants, and dentures.
Before veneer placement, your dentist cleans your teeth and removes old surface restorations. They take impressions of your prepared teeth and send the information to a dental lab, where technicians create custom-fit veneers.
When the veneers are ready, your provider uses special resins and a curing light to bond veneer shells to the front and sides of your teeth. Your dentist shapes and polishes the veneers to perfect your smile. Although the procedure is fast and painless, it produces impressive cosmetic results.
To maintain the integrity of your new veneers, brush your teeth at least two times daily. Floss every day and avoid chewing on ice and other hard objects. Attend routine teeth cleanings and dental exams every six months. Call the Center for Advanced Dentistry team if your veneers get damaged or become loose.
