Learn More About Porcelain Veneers

smileperfectDo you actually know what to expect from porcelain veneers? Sure, you know they will guide you toward a beautiful smile like the grins you see on models and celebrities who grace magazine covers. However, we find that patients often assume the reality of veneers simply cannot live up to the hype. To ensure you say, “yes” to veneers or any other treatment that helps you achieve your smile goals, we want to make sure understand the facts, rather than relying on hearsay or misconceptions. To learn more about the smile transformation you can achieve with veneers, look over the following information (and give us a call if you think this may be the cosmetic treatment for you):

Veneers Accomplish Many Goals

The great advantage of choosing porcelain veneers is that you can truly transform the appearance of your teeth for a beautiful smile. Expect to achieve the following:

  • Filled gaps between teeth for a beautiful, uniform grin
  • Improved tooth length, size, and shape to better complement your appearance
  • A whiter smile that we will adjust according to the shade best suited to your goals
  • The coverage of problem areas like stains, chips, cracks, or textural damage

Veneers Are Strong

We suggest veneers for patients looking for a long-lasting treatment that will withstand the test of time. They are crafted out of many layers of porcelain – though these super-thin ceramic shells appear fragile, they are anything but delicate. We will place them over the visible portion of your teeth to create a façade. By providing them with excellent care, you can expect them to last for many years.

Veneers Require Two Visits

Though the transformative benefits may cause you to assume treatment will be quite time-consuming, you will usually only need to visit us twice. During your initial visit, we will discuss your smile goals with you, while agreeing on the preferences for how to design the veneers. We will also prep your teeth and take impressions of them. During your second visit, we will temporarily place your veneers over your teeth. This will allow us to detect any problems and make final minor changes before permanently placing them over your teeth to make over your smile.
