The process of getting your porcelain veneers only takes two visits. Everything will be completely custom-made based on your needs and desires. When you visit our practice for the first appointment, you’ll pick out all the details for your new teeth, including the shape, size, and shade.
Once the local laboratory produces your new porcelain veneers, they will be permanently bonded to the front surface of your teeth and can last for more than a decade.
Veneers are a popular restorative and cosmetic solution because they can correct several issues with your teeth. Here are some of the common reasons people choose to get this treatment:
Porcelain veneers have the obvious benefit of transforming your smile, but what are some other advantages? Patients can enjoy the following after getting a veneer treatment:
Since porcelain is less porous than most natural materials, you won’t have to worry about pesky stains tarnishing your new smile. This makes it a popular choice for fabricating dental restorations like veneers and crowns.
As we’ve mentioned before, veneers can last over ten years. Breaks, chips, and cracks are not common unless you put the wrong kind of force or pressure on them. Your veneers can withstand the regular forces of chewing, but you still want to avoid biting on hard objects or using your teeth as tools.
There’s no special trick to keep your veneers clean. Maintenance involves practicing your normal dental hygiene habits to prevent decay from settling in your mouth or under your veneers.
If the enamel on your teeth has worn away, it won’t come back. Without that protection, you’re more susceptible to cavities, decay, and deterioration. Veneers are thin enough to fit over your tooth and can replace what has been lost.
Veneers are considered a permanent treatment since we will need to shave off a small amount of enamel from your teeth to place them. We cannot remove your veneers if you decide you don’t want them anymore, as your teeth will no longer have that protection.
Veneers may be durable, but they aren’t stronger than your natural teeth. You may want to consider an alternative treatment if you have bruxism, a condition where you grind or clench your teeth at night. The constant force will shorten the lifespan of your veneers.
Patients with oral infections and tooth decay aren’t the best candidates for veneers. To prevent shortening the lifespan of the veneers, patients should be in good oral and overall health before getting this treatment.
