Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers
Question: How do you create them?
Answer: Each veneer is made from porcelain, a strong and durable material that also reflects light in a similar manner as tooth enamel. We can shade the material to ensure the restoration blends with the smile. We create them based on detailed impressions taken of your teeth. Once placed, they cover the front and sides of the tooth.
Question: What does placement involve?
Answer: We begin by preparing the tooth receiving one, which mean removing a thin layer of enamel and taking detailed impressions. The impressions will be used to design and create them. Once they’re ready, the patient returns so we can place the completed veneers using a powerful bonding agent. In two visits, we can completely change the appearance of your smile.
Question: Can they correct misalignment?
Answer: Yes! We can also them as an alternative to metal braces or clear aligners, instantly improving the appearance of your smile’s alignment. They cost about the same as braces, but leave your smile more aesthetically-pleasing. We can examine your smile and talk to you about using lifelike restorations to correct your smile’s alignment issues.
Question: What other cosmetic benefits do they offer?
Answer: We can sue them to lengthen worn down teeth repair minor chips, and reshape malformed teeth. We’ve placed these thin restorations to mask permanent teeth stains, which typically don’t respond well to teeth whitening. We can also close unsightly gaps between your teeth. By placing them, we transform the smile’s appearance. If you have any questions or concerns about creating and placing dental veneers, then contact our team today.
