What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are often made out of porcelain, and they are thin shells of realistic-looking material. These veneers can be placed over your existing teeth, covering imperfections, flaws and other problem areas. Rather than going with other cosmetic procedures, veneers are easy to make and place. With proper care and oral hygiene you can expect them to last about 10 years before replacement may be needed.
Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
You might want veneers because you’re going to be planning or attending a big event, like a reunion or wedding. It’s natural to want to look your absolute best, and veneers can easily achieve this for you. Your front teeth might be stained, discolored, chipped, cracked or have spaces and gaps between them. Veneers often require little to no anesthetic in order to place over your existing teeth.
Who is a candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Your front teeth should be otherwise healthy in order for veneers to be placed. If the front teeth are decayed, we may suggest other treatments before any type of veneer is placed. Most patients who want veneers can safely have them made and placed over their smiles. These veneers can last for a long period of time and are completely natural-looking without appearing bulky or fake.
