Porcelain veneers can fix minor cosmetic imperfections visible while speaking or smiling. Porcelain veneers are practical solutions for chipped or missing teeth or gaps between teeth.
Porcelain veneers give the teeth a classic shape. Sanders & Soult Family Dentistry offers natural and well-constructed porcelain veneers.
Do I Need Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are suitable if a tooth’s color, shape, and contours have deteriorated over time. Teeth whitening or bleaching may not effectively remove superficial stains and discoloration for some people. In these cases, porcelain veneers are sensible.
A porcelain veneer is a thin, custom-made shell of tooth-colored material used to cover the front surface of teeth. Porcelain veneers change the shape, size, or color of teeth.
Porcelain veneers are custom-made for each person to achieve the most attractive look possible.
Bonded to a Tooth
A porcelain laminate veneer uses a thin layer of porcelain bonded to an adhesive layer to replace tooth enamel. Getting a porcelain veneer does not require removing healthy tooth structure, making the procedure minimally invasive.
Porcelain veneers are smartly designed to fit and accurately restore natural tooth function while improving the tooth’s appearance. Porcelain veneers match a person’s teeth to create a consistent smile.
Porcelain veneers are semi-translucent, enabling them to resemble a real tooth. Porcelain veneers look and feel completely natural in the mouth.
Porcelain veneers are the most popular treatment among cosmetic dentistry procedures. Porcelain veneers are versatile and can fix cosmetic and structural dental issues. The application process is quick, and porcelain veneers have many advantages.
Key benefits of porcelain veneers include:
- Natural appearance
- Strong and long-lasting
- Less prone to stains
Easy to Maintain
Porcelain veneers do not require any special care. Cleaning and maintaining them is similar to caring for regular teeth. Good dental health includes brushing twice a day and flossing at least once daily.
Before getting permanent porcelain veneers, a person receives temporary veneers. Essentially, the person can detect any flaws that the dentist might fix before placing the permanent ones.
Porcelain Veneers vs. Dental Crowns
The primary difference between a veneer and a crown is that a veneer covers only the front of a tooth, while a crown covers the whole tooth.
Porcelain veneers are ideal for teeth that are intact but need cosmetic restoration.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Porcelain veneers are not temporary. After placing permanent ones, porcelain veneers are not easily removable. The average lifespan of a porcelain veneer is between 15 and 20 years.
How Can I Get Porcelain Veneers?
Only a cosmetic dentist can determine a person’s candidacy for porcelain veneers. An initial consultation includes assessing oral health and discussing all possible treatment options. Rest assured, most people are suitable for porcelain veneers.
