What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can provide something of a smile do-over and transform the teeth more dramatically compared to simply whitening them. They are thin coverings made of dental porcelain, and they can correct and enhance the size, shape, and overall visual effect of the teeth that show when you smile.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can correct…
Slight gaps between the teeth
Severely stained or discoloured teeth
Uneven, oddly shaped, or crooked teeth
Broken or chipped teeth
One of the best parts about porcelain veneers is that they can mask numerous flaws at the same time, saving patients from having to get multiple procedures and attend several appointments.
What is the Procedure Like?
At Dentistry @ 1881, porcelain veneers are designed and placed over the course of two visits to our dental office. Local anesthetic is available for your complete comfort at each step of the veneer procedure.
The first appointment is reserved for treatment planning and the preparation of your teeth. This is a minimally-invasive procedure that requires the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for each veneer so it lies flat within the smile. We’ll scan your teeth to send to a lab, and temporary veneers will cover your prepared teeth in the time between appointments.
Once your permanent veneers are ready, we’ll schedule you for your second appointment. During it, after removing your temporaries, Dr. Tamo will check to make sure your new veneers look just like they should. After insuring you are completely delighted, each veneer is securely placed.
Maintaining Your Veneers
When cared for properly, porcelain veneers can be expected to last for about 15-20 years. Here are a few tips to ensure they keep looking and functioning like new:
Wear a mouthguard if you regularly play sports.
Most of us grind at night. We recommend having a protective night guard made.
Brush and floss your teeth regularly so the enamel supporting the veneers stays strong and healthy.
Don’t bite into hard foods or items like pens, pencils, ice, or fingernails that can wear down or break your veneers.
Do not use your teeth as tools especially with veneers and crowns.
We also recommend coming to see us for regular checkups at least twice a year. That way, should we discover a minor issue with your veneers, we can quickly fix it before it turns into a major problem.
