The Pros of Porcelain Veneers

DF2 Uncategorized

Need a change? Making an appointment with a skilled cosmetic dentist could be the confidence your mouth is looking for. Porcelain veneers are more than just a dental fad, they can be life changing!

What are veneers?
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are custom molded and fit to your teeth. They are attached to your existing teeth making them an attractive option for those patients looking for an aesthetically pleasing transformation!

What can veneers do for me?
The placement of veneers can improve size, color, symmetry, gaps, and other unattractive irregularities such as shape. Porcelain veneers have the possibility to boost self-confidence and self-esteem. Not only can you feel better about your appearance, a new bright smile has been proven to raise the chances of employment and a raise. They are definitely worth the investment as the benefits definitely outweigh the concerns.

How long do they last?
Properly placed porcelain veneers last anywhere from 7-15 years, with the average being 10 years. However, expertly placed veneers can last much longer than that.

What is the process?
First, a patient comes in for a consultation where we discuss their wants in regards to aesthetics and medical needs. Next, we take impressions and then they are sent to our trusted lab that specializes in porcelain veneers. After I remove part of the enamel, I artistically apply temporaries that look close to the finished result. For patient convenience and comfort, I clean, etch, apply, and adjust veneers in one other visit. Typically, I ask my patients to come back a week later to make any other needed adjustments. The whole process from beginning to end usually takes 3 appointments in total.
