Today’s message focuses on an effective and versatile cosmetic dental procedure available at Durham Dental Group, porcelain veneers.
Veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth. They are a fantastic way to fix a range of imperfections, such as chips, stains, yellowing, an unattractive shape, or minimal misalignment.
Have you ever sought a minimally-invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your solution! Strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.
How many veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to beautify and the overall condition of your teeth. We can advise you on the most effective strategy.
The thickness, enamel color, alignment, and shape of your teeth influence the outcome as well as whether you have any gum recession. Veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you definitely want to have them constructed in the same “batch” at the lab.
The first step in the veneer process is to make a model of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician will use the model to fabricate the veneers to the specific size, shape, color, and degree of translucency.
Many patients wonder if veneers are as durable as their natural teeth. Though the veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth slightly, with proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years. We’ll advise you in detail on proper care of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent option if you want to quickly improve the appearance of your smile. The Durham Dental Group provides general and cosmetic dentistry, and procedures like dental implants. Schedule an appointment with us today.
