BEAUTIFUL SMILES

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made highly durable ceramic shells that cover the front of your entire tooth. They can be used on any tooth in order to change its color or shape. They can also be used to cover small gaps and teeth that are slightly out of position.

Porcelain veneers are gaining in popularity

There are a few reasons why dental veneers are becoming one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. The benefits of porcelain veneers include:

  • They’re an affordable option compared with other cosmetic procedures such as crowns and bridges.
  • The results last up to 10 years.
  • They’re an almost-instantaneous way to update your smile.
  • You don’t need extensive dental work before getting them done. Porcelain veneers usually take only one appointment.
  • They are highly customizable to blend in with your existing smile or brighten it!
  • They are durable. You won’t have to worry about chipping or breaking off over time.

What Can Porcelain Veneers Treat?

Porcelain veneers can treat a range of cosmetic dental issues, including:

  • Tooth discoloration of your natural tooth enamel caused by stains from coffee, tea, red wine, tobacco, medications, etc.
  • Slightly crooked teeth due to malocclusion
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Small chips/cracks on enamel
  • Chipped or broken fillings
  • Discolorations around restorative materials like amalgam fillings

What Is the Process for Dental Veneers?

At Breathe Modern Dentistry we use state-of-the art technology to create porcelain veneers. We start by taking impressions from all sides of your mouth so our technicians know exactly how they should fit. Then we send these impressions to our in-house lab where they get made into models.

Once this is complete, we’ll make sure everything fits correctly and then apply the veneer directly onto your teeth using special adhesive materials.

Do My Teeth Have to Be Shaved Down for Porcelain Veneers?

Yes, but the amount of enamel removed is about 1 millimeter. This means there’s no risk of losing too much healthy tissue around your teeth. The reason for this is the tooth surface of your teeth needs to be slightly rough in order for the adhesive used in the veneer process to stick to your enamel. If your teeth were smooth, the adhesives wouldn’t adhere properly.

Another reason for this is that since the dental veneer, despite being very thin, still takes up space in your mouth and bite. If we did not adjust your tooth enamel, your bite off, which could, in turn, cause stress and strain on your jaw joints and contribute to the development of temporomandibular joint disorder.

How Long Do Porcelain Veneer Results Last?

Your new smile will look great right away, but it could stay perfect for several years after treatment with proper care It depends on many factors including:

  • Diet
  • Oral hygiene habits
  • Smoking

If you want to keep your new smile looking fresh and beautiful, we recommend that brush and floss regularly and visit us for regular cleanings and exams at least every six months.

Common Questions About Porcelain Veneers

Do Porcelain Veneers Weaken Natural Teeth?

No, porcelain veneering does not weaken your natural teeth. In fact, it strengthens them since it adds more material to your tooth enamel. Your dentist may suggest having some additional bonding applied if your teeth aren’t strong enough to support the veneer. However, most people find their teeth feel stronger once the procedure has been completed.

Do Porcelain Veneers Stain?

Most patients report that porcelain veneer staining isn’t noticeable unless you eat something dark immediately following application. Some foods do stain the veneer though, especially those containing tannins. To avoid any problems, try brushing gently with fluoride toothpaste after eating certain foods.

Do Porcelain Veneers Require Anesthesia?

Not usually, although sometimes local anesthesia is required during placement for patient comfort.

Porcelain Veneers as Part of Smile Makeover

We offer a wide variety of treatments to help improve your appearance and self confidence. Some people choose to combine different types of cosmetic dental services together to achieve their desired result. For example composite veneers may be a great solution to finishing your smile’s makeover after teeth are straightened with clear aligner therapy or after dental implants.

Can Anyone Get Veneers?

Yes. However, it’s important to not that dental veneers and other cosmetic treatments are ideal for individuals with healthy teeth. If you have decayed teeth or damaged teeth, we will work with you as part of your cosmetic treatment and smile makeover to bring your teeth and mouth to a healthy state before we start the veneer process.
