What are porcelain verneer?
- Veneers are thin laminates or shells of tooth coloured porcelain that are “cemented” to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance. Based on your needs, we can adjust the shape of your veneers to make your teeth overall look longer and/or closer together. You can have just one veneer or a whole set, known as a smile make over.
The Porcelain Dental Veneers Procedure
- The first step in the porcelain dental veneers begins with an evaluation of your teeth to make sure that this treatment is the best option for your goal. Once it’s determined that dental veneers can be benefical to your needs, our doctors will take an impression of your teeth to ensure the most precise and natural-looking fit for the veneers.
- The impression will be then used to create a custom- designed porcelain dental veneer made by an experienced ceramist at our dental laboratory.
- Composed of a durable porcelain material, the ultra thin veneer will be affixed to your tooth with a very strong cement. Your new porcelain veneer will be custom shaded to match the appearance of your surrounding teeth. Once a final polish is complete, your veneer should both look and feel like a natural tooth.
Do dental veneers need any kind of special care?
- Good oral hygiene practices including brushing and flossing will ensure that the veneers last a long time. Veneers, like your natural tooth structure, can chip or break if it is subject to heavy biting and large forces and patient should avoid this.
- If well taken care of, veneers can last 10-15 years.
