What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers refer to a dental application that covers teeth to restore their color and functionality. Veneers consist of a thin shell of porcelain material that attaches and covers teeth. Dentists use veneers for many dental problems, including:
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Tooth damage
  • Teeth gaps
  • Chipped teeth
  • Tooth discoloration
Porcelain veneers represent just one type of veneer that a dentist might use. Other common types of dental veneers include composite veneers and composite resin veneers. But, generally speaking, porcelain veneers make the best choice because they are the most durable and the longest-lasting, resulting in the most cost-effective option.

Porcelain Veneer Process

The porcelain veneer application process is pretty straightforward and only takes two to three appointments. First, the dentist will consult with you to see if veneers are a viable option for your teeth.

The dentist will prepare your teeth to facilitate the bonding of the veneers. First, they will remove a small enamel layer (usually about 1 mm), so the veneers fit. Removing the top layer of enamel opens up pores on the teeth, so they bond more readily to the veneers. Our dentist will use a local anesthetic, meaning you should experience no discomfort during preparation.

At your last appointment, the dentist will place the veneers on your teeth using a unique bonding material that reacts to blue light to cure and harden. They may also perform final adjustments to make sure the veneers properly fit.

Your dentist may recommend you stay away from sticky or hard foods for a few weeks after the procedure. But otherwise, you won’t have to make any significant changes to your diet or oral care routine.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Let’s review a few of the benefits that porcelain veneers provide.

Natural Look

One of the best features of porcelain veneers is that they mimic natural tooth color and shine. With proper care, most people won’t even notice that you have porcelain veneers at all. If you have discolored or stained teeth, porcelain veneers can restore the natural color of your teeth.

Strong and Durable

Porcelain is a strong material resistant to cracking, chipping, and chemical degradation. Porcelain veneers can last for up to 30 years if taken care of properly. Due to their price and longevity, porcelain veneers make an extremely cost-effective solution over composite materials. We also offer options for temporary veneers.

Restore Functionality

Many people often consider porcelain veneers a cosmetic procedure, but they can also restore tooth functionality. For example, veneers can make it easier to chew food and reduce discomfort from misshapen or crooked teeth.

Increase Confidence

Lastly, porcelain veneers can significantly increase your self-confidence. Your smile is often one of the first things people notice about you, so having a perfect white smile can do wonders for your self-image.
