Porcelain veneers are thin shells customized to fit on the front of your natural teeth. Prestige Dental Centers offers veneers to patients looking to correct a wide range of dental issues.
Porcelain veneers resemble the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. People commonly choose them due to their natural appearance. After two visits and a painless procedure, you can have a new and improved smile.
If you’re unhappy with the color, shape, size, or condition of your teeth and want to improve your smile, you can benefit from dental veneers.
There are many reasons patients opt for veneers, including:
Advantages of veneers include that you can select any shade of veneer to whiten your smile and that they don’t require as much shaping as alternative options, such as crowns.
Whether you want only one veneer or a whole mouthful, the team at Prestige Dental Centers takes the time to discuss the procedure with you to ensure that veneers are right for you.
Once the decision is made, the team may take X-rays to confirm that your teeth can support veneers. If so, your provider begins the placement process by taking molds of your teeth so your custom veneers can be fabricated on-site.
At your second visit, once your porcelain veneers are ready, your provider removes a portion of the enamel from the front of your teeth. This creates a rough surface to help the veneers adhere to your teeth.
Once you’re satisfied with how they look and any adjustments are made, your provider bonds the veneers to your teeth using dental cement and hardens the cement using a special light. At that point, you’re free to start enjoying your new and improved smile.
Veneers don’t require special aftercare but make sure to brush and floss daily and schedule regular dental cleanings to help maintain their appearance.
