Porcelain Veneers Q&A

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a type of cosmetic dental treatment that covers the visible surfaces of your teeth with thin “shells” of porcelain. Each set of veneers is crafted to suit the patient's specific needs, so no two sets are ever exactly alike.

Veneers offer the opportunity to transform your smile without replacing your teeth. They are durable and incredibly natural looking, which is why they are such a popular option for celebrities and public figures.

Advancements in dental technology have made veneers far more affordable than in decades past. Today, many more people can achieve impressive results through dental veneers. 

What kinds of cosmetic issues can porcelain veneers correct?

Porcelain veneers are very versatile, making it possible to correct a number of different issues with the same treatment. Some of the benefits of porcelain veneers include the ability to correct:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Minor misalignment issues
  • Discoloration
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Irregularities in the size or shape of teeth

A great set of porcelain veneers can create a smile for you to enjoy sharing with others. 

What are the steps involved in getting porcelain veneers?

During your initial visit, your dentist performs a dental exam and intraoral scanning to learn more about the size, shape, and condition of your teeth. If you have active dental decay or gum disease, those issues need to be resolved prior to moving forward with veneers. 

On the day of your procedure, an injection of numbing medication ensures you won’t feel a thing as your dentist carefully removes a small portion of your tooth enamel to make room for the new veneers.

Digital impressions provide the lab with all the details needed to craft your custom porcelain veneers. A set of temporary veneers protects your teeth until the new versions arrive. 

Once your new veneers come in, you return to the office to have them checked for fit and appearance before being cemented into place. This completes the process, and you can begin enjoying your smile right away.
