What Are Porcelain Dental Veneers?

A porcelain veneer is a cosmetic dentistry service that enhances the beauty of your smile. Porcelain veneers are shells that fit over the front of your tooth. Each veneer is custom-made to the desired color and shape. Porcelain veneers can change the size, shape, and color of your teeth so that all of your teeth are uniform. They are perfect for enhancing the beauty of your smile and correcting minor imperfections. They can also improve your confidence and self-esteem.

Popular Types of Veneers

There are a few different types of veneers that you can consider. We can help you evaluate the different types and determine which is right for your needs and goals. The most popular types of veneers are:

  • Composite Veneers – Composite veneers are made from a tooth-colored composite resin.
  • Porcelain Veneers – Porcelain veneers are made from pressed ceramic and are slightly translucent, making them look very natural.
  • No-Prep Veneers – No-prep veneers are minimally invasive and don’t require as much enamel removal.
  • Removable Veneers—Removable veneers are non-permanent veneers, also called pop-on veneers or snap-on veneers. They cover your natural teeth like other veneers and hide imperfections, but they can be removed at any time.

Porcelain Veneers Procedure

Before we schedule a procedure for porcelain veneers, we will do a full dental exam and may take dental x-rays, 3D digital dental images, or dental impressions. We will examine your teeth and gums to confirm you are eligible for veneers. We will prepare your teeth by removing some of your dental enamel. This creates room for the veneers and makes the bonding material adhere better to your teeth. We will send your dental images and impressions to a dental lab, where they will create customized veneers. When your veneers are ready, we will schedule another appointment for you to come in. At this visit, we will make sure the veneers are the right size, shape, and color. We will then bond them into place permanently using dental cement. We will inspect them carefully to make sure they look natural and don’t impact your ability to eat or speak.

Why Get Porcelain Veneers?

You should consider porcelain veneers if you want to improve or enhance the appearance of your teeth and smile, but teeth whitening isn’t sufficient, and you don’t need an extensive procedure like dental bridges. Veneers can change the overall appearance of your teeth by making your teeth uniform in size, shape, and color. You might want to get porcelain veneers if you have:

  • Discolored, yellowed, or stained teeth.
  • Gaps between your teeth.
  • Small teeth or some teeth that are significantly smaller than others.
  • Teeth that are misshapen or aren’t uniform in appearance.
  • Chipped, broken, cracked, or damaged teeth.

Advantages of Porcelain Veneers

Before you get porcelain veneers, you should make sure you understand the process and what to expect from your results. You should also look at photos of porcelain veneers before and after so you know what to expect. The biggest advantages of getting porcelain veneers are:

  • Enhanced beauty and appearance of your teeth.
  • Teeth that are whiter and brighter.
  • Symmetry and uniform appearance of your teeth.
  • Teeth that are resistant to staining.
  • Veneers will last 10-15 years with proper care.
  • Veneers blend in with your natural teeth and look lifelike.
  • A cosmetic dentistry procedure that does not damage your teeth.
  • You can care for your teeth as usual by brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash.
  • Most types of veneers are permanent.
  • Veneers can hide imperfections like stains, yellowing, discoloration, cracks, damage, gaps, misshapen teeth, and small teeth.
