Porcelain veneers are a superior method of cosmetic dentistry, giving patients the smiles they’ve always dreamed of but never knew they could have!
It may come as a surprise, but there are different options to choose from when pursuing porcelain veneers. Depending on your level of care and individual preference regarding tooth alteration and invasiveness, you can opt for traditional porcelain veneers or minimal-prep veneers.
Traditional porcelain veneers require your cosmetic dentist to remove a portion of your tooth’s enamel. Why? This is so the veneer will not only lay flat, but it will adhere to your natural tooth once the bonding agent is put into place.
Traditional veneers are a great option, but it does often require either sedation or local anesthesia, depending on your individual needs.
If the idea of having your teeth altered isn’t what you had in mind, you may opt for minimal-prep veneers, which are considered a less invasive option. Less enamel needs to be removed in order for these veneers to bond correctly.
If you’re worried they won’t cover like traditional veneers, you’ll be happy to know they cover gaps, correct chips and cracks, and provide beautiful results, just like traditional porcelain veneers.
When preparing for traditional or minimal-prep veneers, you’ll schedule a consultation with one of our skilled cosmetic dentists. Examining your mouth, they will remove a small portion of your tooth’s enamel, ensuring the veneer will lay properly and adhere with the bonding agent. Once this step is complete, they will take an impression of your smile, so the dental lab can begin to work on creating your custom veneers. Rest assured, your veneers will be carefully matched the color, size, and shape of your liking.
Once they are ready, you’ll return to our office to have them permanently placed. Veneers are long-lasting, so you’ll never have to worry about them “popping off.”
As you get older, it’s normal for your teeth to become discolored, stained, and even worn down by daily wear and tear. If your teeth and overall oral health are in good shape but are experiencing visually noticeable problems, cosmetic dentistry solutions may be the answer to restoring and transforming your smile.
This is why many patients opt for porcelain veneers. Not only are they stain-resistant, but they’re durable, too. Compared to teeth whitening or a full smile makeover, porcelain veneers offer a long-lasting solution and can have you seeing a beautiful new smile in just two visits to our office.
