Porcelain VeneersAn Overview

Do you want a total smile makeover without the long wait?

Porcelain veneers are a highly durable cosmetic solution suitable for addressing a range of cosmetic dental concerns. Porcelain veneers can help you achieve a well-balanced, bright white, natural-looking smile.

Improving the appearance of your smile is essential. Addressing cosmetic blemishes often helps to support a healthier smile.  Even minor chips and cracks can lead to root canal infections, tooth loss, or other secondary issues. Having a smile you feel proud of can boost your self-confidence and improve your overall well-being.

dental veneer for cosmetic concerns

Dental veneers are ultra-thin ceramic shells that are bonded to the surface of the tooth. Each veneer is about .3mm to .5mm thick and is custom designed using digital imaging and high-quality dental grade porcelain.

Porcelain veneers are used to address cosmetic dental concerns and are considered a permanent dental restoration. Learn about the difference between porcelain veneers and teeth whitening here.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

What Issues Can Veneers Address?

We can use these restorations to address issues with the shape and color of your teeth. We can mask permanent teeth stains, which often don’t respond to traditional teeth whitening techniques. Placing them can also reshape malformed or chipped teeth.

We can use them to lengthen worn-down teeth or even close gaps between teeth. Finally, they can be placed to correct the appearance of minor misalignment.

Minimal Prep vs. Traditional Porcelain Veneers?

We offer two different options. Both are thin shells of porcelain placed onto the front of the teeth. Traditional veneers are thicker and require the removal of natural tooth structure to make room for them.

Minimal prep veneers are much thinner and can often be placed without removing tooth structure. The option we recommend will depend on a number of factors, from the patient’s preference to the severity of the patient’s cosmetic issues.

How Do I Maintain My New Restorations?

You should take the same steps to safeguard your veneers as you would to protect your teeth. We suggest brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing every night before going to bed.

You should also make time every six months to schedule a checkup and dental cleaning with your dentist. During these visits, we can monitor your new restorations and remove plaque buildup.

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect

Receiving a dental veneer will require a few trips to the Claremont Dental Institute. Veneers are a multi-phased treatment that results in natural, beautiful smiles.

Your smile makeover will begin with a one-on-one cosmetic consultation with your dentist. During your consultation, you will discuss your aesthetic goals, review your oral health and go over possible treatment plans.

Your dentist will help you build a cosmetic treatment plan that addresses underlying dental health concerns and repairs and enhances the appearance of your smile.

How do dental veneers work?

Dental veneers require the removal of a portion of your tooth enamel. Your dentist will gently remove a layer of enamel to make space for the veneer to sit evenly with adjacent teeth.

Once the teeth are prepared, your dentist will take molds and digital images to be used in the design process. These precise molds help your dentist create a veneer that will blend in with your existing teeth while enhancing the appearance of your overall smile.

The dental veneer material is color-matched to achieve the shade you desire. The material is light reflective and will look like your adjacent teeth. While patients wait for their final veneer to be fabricated, they may be fitted with a temporary veneer.

While wearing the temporary dental veneer patients are recommended to stick to a soft diet.

Once the veneer is fabricated, your dentist will place the veneer or veneers in place for a final check. Patients will approve the shape, size, and fit of the veneer before the final bonding.

The dental veneer permanently adheres to the tooth with the use of a special bonding agent. Patients can return to their daily routines immediately after their veneer is placed.
