Are you not pleased with the appearance of your smile? There are nearly endless options at your disposal available at our practice. One of the best solutions for improving the appearance of uneven, misshapen or discolored teeth is the use of porcelain veneers. Due to their natural appearance and low maintenance levels, they are a great choice that can drastically improve the appearance of your teeth. Our practice specializes in cosmetic dentistry which is the art of not only restoring your teeth, but creating an ascetically pleasing, and “picture-perfect” smile you’ll be proud to show off.
Are Veneers Right for You?
In the process of helping you to decide if veneers are right for your, your dentist can create mock ups that allow you to “try them on” and to get a preview of what the final results would look like. After you’ve made your decision to go ahead with veneers, your dental professional will get to work on creating your new dream smile. The size, shape and color all tailored to exactly fit your teeth.
When the veneers are ready to go, a small amount of your tooth enamel — usually less than a millimeter — is will be removed to prep the tooth. In certain cases, no-prep, or minimal-prep, veneers could be an option. They are preferable to many people because they’re bonded to the front surface of your teeth and won’t require as much removal of tooth material. However, not all patients will be good candidates for no-prep veneers.
Caring for Your Veneers
Whichever type of dental veneer you get, it will be permanently affixed to your tooth using a super-strong, light-sensitive resin. Your new smile will look great and function just like your regular teeth. Even better, they’re resistant to staining from things like coffee, tea and cigarette smoke. They don’t require special day-to-day maintenance — just continue to brush and floss like you normally would. From time to time, it’s a good idea to have them checked out by the dentist and polished, but other than that, they’ll keep your smile looking great without any special effort from you.
How Long do Veneers Last?
Generally depending on how well the patient cares for them they will last between 10 and 20 years.
