What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are porcelain covers that affix to the front surfaces of teeth. Prior to placement, these custom crafted sheaths resemble a fingernail in size and shape. Once in place, veneers can correct and conceal numerous dental flaws, creating gorgeous smiles in just two visits.
Who Should Consider Veneers?
Any patient who wants to brighten, straighten, or otherwise perfect their smiles may want to consider porcelain veneers. They are a great solution for those patients who want to close gaps in the smile or correct the appearance of overlapping teeth. Those patients who have deep-set staining that cannot be removed with more conservative teeth whitening options may be able to achieve their desired tooth shade using veneers. Pretty much any cosmetic flaw can be corrected with quick, effective porcelain veneer treatment.
How are Porcelain Veneers Placed?
The porcelain veneer treatment process is completed over the course of two trips to our Greensboro dental office. During the initial treatment visit, we will prepare your teeth by removing a very thin layer of surface tooth enamel. This allows your veneer to lay flat within your natural smile line to avoid changes to your bite or tooth alignment. Once teeth are prepared, we capture impressions of your teeth. Our dental lab uses these impressions to craft your custom porcelain veneer to our exact specifications. Before you leave, we’ll place temporary veneers to protect your teeth and let you get used to the look and feel of your new veneers. Once we receive the final restoration from our lab, you’ll return to our office for a shorter follow up visit. At this second appointment, we’ll remove your temporaries and replace them with the flawless, custom crafted porcelain veneers, leaving you with a gorgeous smile.
Do I Have to Care for My Veneers Differently?
For the most part, you can brush and floss your teeth with veneers just as you would your healthy, natural teeth. However, to ensure you can extend the life of your veneers as long as possible, you may want to switch your hygiene products. Soft and ultra soft bristled toothbrushes and minimally abrasive toothpastes ensure you’ll avoid excessive porcelain wear that can cut the life of your veneer short. Additionally, we may review your technique with you to ensure you’re not brushing too hard. Using a waxed floss or water flosser may also be preferable, to avoid tugging around the edges of your veneers.
