How Porcelain Veneers Improve Appearance
If you are thinking about veneers and if they are a good option for you to have a great looking smile, then this is a great place to learn more about this service. If for some reason or another, you have uneven tones of white on your teeth and every bleaching method you’ve tried doesn’t really work, veneers would be a great option for you. Veneers gives your teeth a bright, even tone of white so that you have the confidence to flash that smile to anyone.
What is a Veneer?
A veneer can be compared to a fake nail. It is a thin piece of a porcelain shell that with cement, it adheres to the front of your teeth, covering any flaws the front of your teeth have. The material used to make veneers is typically porcelain or composite materials. This is all based on what your specific needs are.
Placing veneers usually takes a couple of appointments. Before placing veneers, we will carefully take away surface enamel. This gives the veneer a better base and something to adhere to a lot easier. Once the tooth is fully prepped, we will place temporary veneers while the permanent veneers are being made in the lab. When your permanent veneers are made, you will come back into the office and we will bond the new veneers to your teeth with a dental glue that is long-lasting. You can expect the veneer(s) to last anywhere from 15-20 years. If you are caring for your teeth and gums well, then you can expect to get a lot of years from your veneers.
What You Should Know About Veneers
You should know that if there is anything that happens to your veneers that causes them to be damaged, they can easily be replaced. It is also helpful for you to know that once you have veneers, you cannot go without them or another type of cosmetic or restorative procedure completed to cover your teeth, since there was removal of enamel.
