Porcelain Veneer FAQs
- Why would you recommend porcelain veneers?
- How are porcelain veneers created?
- Are porcelain veneers durable?
Porcelain veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color, size, or shape. Porcelain veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline, by an injury, or as a result of a root-canal procedure, and are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider veneers.
Generally, veneers will last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed.
First a thin layer of enamel is removed so that the veneer can be easily bonded to your natural tooth. Once the preparation is completed an impression of your teeth to send to a dental laboratory where the veneers are produced. At your next appointment the newly created veneers will be bonded to your natural teeth.
