What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a popular treatment for improving the appearance of any smile. They are a permanent dental restoration that dentists may suggest to correct a range of cosmetic concerns. Teeth veneers are like a thin ceramic shell that attaches to the front and sides of the tooth. They will cover up any cosmetic blemishes and help to protect the tooth from further damage. Your dentist will permanently bond the dental veneer to the prepared tooth. You can choose to use them to treat one tooth or several teeth. Porcelain Veneers can be used to fix:
- Stained teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth with chips or cracks
- Gaps in between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Teeth that too small
- Worn down teeth
The Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
Teeth veneers will create a uniform, perfect smile. This will help you build more confidence in yourself and the way you look. Porcelain veneers are popular because they resemble natural teeth. They are very thin and will feel very natural in your mouth. The porcelain material will even help make your teeth stronger and. They do not need special care. You simply continue with a normal oral hygiene routine that includes brushing and flossing every day. This also includes visiting your dentist every six months for a dental checkup and teeth cleaning.
Porcelain Veneer Process
The dental veneer procedure will usually take two or three visits to our dentist office. The first step is a consultation with Dr. Weinstock at his Bala Cynwyd, PA cosmetic dentistry office. It is important to determine if you are a candidate for porcelain veneers and if they will meet your cosmetic goals. Dr. Weinstock will evaluate your dental health and discuss your concerns before creating a personalized treatment plan for you.
We will take dental impressions of your teeth. Your custom dental veneers will be colored matched and made in a dental lab.
Then Dr. Weinstock will prepare the teeth to be treated by etching the surface of the tooth to make room for the dental veneer. In most cases, we will place temporary dental veneers on the teeth for comfort and appearance until the final restoration is ready.
Once the porcelain veneers are complete, you will return to our cosmetic dentistry office in Bala Cynwyd, PA for the final placement of your restorations. Dr. Weinstock will try the dental veneers on your teeth to check the fit and color. Once both you and the dentist are satisfied, Dr. Weinstock will use a special bonding cement to secure the porcelain veneers to your teeth.
