Veneers are an excellent opportunity to create a perfect smile. They can be recommended for functional purposes or cosmetic reasons, but our clients find them to be life changing.
What are Porcelain Dental Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are shells that cover the tooth surface and are custom-made to the individual. Choosing this option can help to correct worn, crooked, or stained teeth. In fact, veneers are highly resistant to discoloration and look exactly like natural teeth.
Will Porcelain Veneers Look Natural?
Porcelain veneers look so natural that it is difficult to distinguish them from original teeth. They reflect light just like enamel. They are resistant to staining and do not wear down like natural teeth. With regular maintenance, they can last for many years.
Our dentists work with you to choose the best veneers for your mouth, lifestyle and personality.
Please feel free to contact us for a consultation visit so that we can thoroughly explain the benefits and procedures used.
Can I Treat Them Like Regular Teeth?
There are a few individuals for whom veneers are not recommended. Those are people with a history of grinding their teeth or with severe bite issues. We recommend that the veneer wearer avoid biting fingernails or using their teeth to open hair pins or similar products. Home cleaning and regular dental visits keep them shiny and nice.
What if I don’t want to alter the structure of my teeth?
Another option might be Lumineers. They are somewhat thinner than porcelain veneers and are generally applied without drilling or freezing.
We are happy to discuss the various overlay options that would be available to you.
