Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers
Question: What issues can these restorations address?
Answer: A veneer can mask permanent teeth stains and help reshape a malformed or damaged tooth. We can also use them to correct the appearance of minor misalignment and also to close gaps in the smile. They are shaded to match surrounding teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile. In addition, the porcelain material is durable and stain-resistant.
Question: How are they placed?
Answer: First, we prepare the tooth by removing a very thin layer of enamel. Detailed impressions are then taken and used by a dental lab to fabricate the restorations. Once complete, the doctor checks the fit before placing the restorations using a powerful bonding agent. The entire procedure takes about two visits.
Question: What are no-prep veneers?
Answer: No-prep veneers are much thinner than traditional porcelain veneers, which means we don’t need to remove layers of enamel before placing. Unlike other restorations, these can be made extremely thin without becoming brittle or cracking.
Question: How do I care for them?
Answer: You should care for your new restorations just as you would your natural teeth. We expect you to brush your teeth and floss every day. We also suggest having your teeth examined and cleaned once every six months. Doing so allows the doctor to monitor your new restorations and helps protect your teeth from tooth decay and gum disease.
