Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth for an immediate smile transformation. Individually crafted for each patient, these cosmetic enhancements are made from advanced material that closely resembles the appearance of natural dental enamel. Dentists can use veneers for an impressive number of cosmetic corrections, ranging from teeth whitening to orthodontic adjustments.

Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers provide a more conservative approach to changing a tooth's color, size, or shape. Porcelain laminate veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline, damage due to an injury, or as the result of a root-canal procedure, and are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider porcelain veneers.

The Procedure

The process of getting veneers involves a few visits to the dentist – one for a consultation and two to make and apply the veneers. One tooth or many teeth can undergo the veneering process simultaneously.

Caring for Your Veneers

Porcelain veneers are strong and durable. However, care must be taken not to abuse veneers because the thin porcelain shells or the bonding that holds them in place can be damaged or break. Your dentist will advise you against certain uses or dietary tendencies (such as eating carrots) and may recommend you wear a protective appliance while sleeping, especially if you are a bruxer.

Longevity and Aesthetics

With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade. Dr. Aliamus will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.

Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
