Who Are Porcelain Veneers Good For?
Most adult patients are eligible for porcelain veneers. Because they work by simply covering up the damaged tooth enamel, veneers can fix virtually any cosmetic issue. Teeth that are functionally flawed, however, may be better served by a crown.
Porcelain veneers can correct teeth that are…
- Chipped or cracked
- Uneven or slightly misaligned
- Oddly textured
- Stained or severely discolored
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
The advantages associated with porcelain veneers are many. Some of the most frequently cited include…
- Multiple cosmetic imperfections improved all at once
- Dental porcelain does not stain as quickly as natural tooth enamel
- Can eliminate the need for braces
- Minimally-invasive procedure
- Can last for many years
Procedure for Porcelain Veneers
If porcelain veneers are the chosen solution for your smile, you can expect the procedure to take place over the course of two visits to Island Daily Dental Care. In the first, we will prepare your teeth for the veneers. Preparation typically involves removing a small portion of enamel from the surface of each tooth — making room to ensure the veneers do not stick out against the rest of the teeth.
After the teeth have been prepared, we will take impressions, or molds, of your teeth. These measurements will be sent with your treatment plan to our trusted lab, where your veneers will be created according to the specific dimensions of your smile. You return to our office for their final placement one or two weeks later.
Temporary veneers will cover your prepared teeth in the time between appointments. When you return to our office, we will remove the temporaries and check to make sure the permanent veneers fit and function just like they should. We can make last minute adjustments as needed. Once everything is just as it should be, we will bond each veneer securely onto the surface of the teeth.
Veneers can last for a decade or more with proper care. Brush your veneers gently with your favorite toothpaste, floss carefully, and protect your smile with a custom-fitted mouth-guard if you play contact sports or grind your teeth at night. If you experience any issues or discomfort with your veneers, contact your dentist immediately.
