What Are Veneers and When Do You Need them?

Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. They are a cosmetic solution used to improve the appearance of teeth that are misshapen, worn down, cracked, misaligned, or stained. Veneers are recommended for minor tooth flaws when teeth whitening cannot provide satisfactory results. Veneers may be needed if you have excessive gaps, chipped teeth, permanent stains, or other unsightly blemishes you want corrected to improve the aesthetics and symmetry of your smile.

Our Dental Porcelain Process

Our porcelain veneer process follows a standardized dental procedure.

  • Examination and Preparation: The dentist examines the tooth and determines if a crown or veneer is needed. They prepare the tooth by removing a portion of the outer layer and shaping it to accommodate the porcelain restoration.
  • Impression: An impression of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth is taken using dental putty or digital scanning technology. This impression captures the precise shape and alignment of the teeth.
  • Shade Selection: The dentist and patient work together to select the desired shade of porcelain that matches the natural color of the patient’s teeth. This ensures that the final restoration blends seamlessly with the rest of the smile.
  • Temporary Restoration: While the permanent porcelain crown or veneer is being fabricated in the dental laboratory, a temporary restoration is placed over the prepared tooth to protect it and maintain functionality.
  • Laboratory Fabrication: The dental laboratory technician uses the impression and shade information to create a custom porcelain restoration. This involves carefully layering and shaping the porcelain material to achieve the desired shape, texture, and color.
  • Fit and Adjustments: Once the permanent porcelain restoration is ready, the patient returns for a fitting. The dentist places the restoration on the prepared tooth and makes any necessary adjustments to ensure a proper fit, bite, and aesthetics.
  • Cementation: After confirming the fit and appearance of the porcelain restoration, the dentist permanently bonds it to the tooth using dental cement. The cement forms a strong and durable bond between the restoration and the tooth structure.
  • Final Polishing: The dentist carefully polishes the porcelain restoration to achieve a smooth and natural-looking surface. This enhances its aesthetics and helps prevent staining or plaque buildup.
  • Post-Treatment Care: The patient receives instructions on how to care for the porcelain restoration, including proper oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene to ensure the longevity of the porcelain restoration.

Benefits of Getting Dental Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer several benefits for individuals looking to improve the appearance of their teeth. Here are some of the key advantages of porcelain veneers:
  • Enhances Smile: Porcelain veneers can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile. They can correct various cosmetic dental issues, such as stained or discolored teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, uneven or misaligned teeth, and gaps between teeth. Veneers are customized to match the natural color and shape of your teeth, resulting in a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
  • Natural Appearance: Porcelain veneers are designed to mimic the translucency and texture of natural teeth. They are crafted from high-quality, stain-resistant porcelain material that reflects light similarly to natural tooth enamel. This makes the veneers blend seamlessly with your existing teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile.
  • Stain Resistance: Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains caused by coffee, tea, tobacco, and other common staining agents. Unlike natural teeth, which can become discolored over time, porcelain veneers maintain their original color and brightness, helping you maintain a long-lasting white smile.
  • Durable and Long-lasting: When properly cared for, porcelain veneers can last for a decade or more. The material used for veneers is strong and durable, providing resistance to everyday wear and tear. However, it’s important to avoid excessive biting or chewing on hard objects to prevent potential damage.
  • Minimally Invasive: The process of getting porcelain veneers is considered minimally invasive compared to other cosmetic dental procedures. The procedure typically involves removing a thin layer of enamel from the front surface of the teeth to make room for the veneers. This preserves much of the natural tooth structure and reduces the need for extensive dental work.
  • Easy Maintenance: Maintaining porcelain veneers is relatively simple. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups are usually sufficient to keep your veneers and natural teeth healthy. It is important to avoid habits such as biting on hard objects or opening packages with your teeth to prevent any potential damage.
  • Boosts Confidence: One of the significant benefits of porcelain veneers is the positive impact they can have on your self-confidence. By improving the appearance of your smile, veneers can help you feel more confident and comfortable in social and professional situations.

It’s important to note that while porcelain veneers can provide numerous benefits, they may not be suitable for everyone. Consulting with a qualified dentist is essential to determine if veneers are the right option for your specific dental needs.
