Porcelain Veneers Q & A

What are porcelain veneers?

Veneers cover your natural teeth with a thin layer of porcelain. They can change the shape, color, size, and symmetry of your teeth and improve your smile.

You can get veneers in other materials, like resin composite, but porcelain more closely resembles natural enamel and has superior stain-resistant qualities.

Why might I need porcelain veneers?

You might want to consider porcelain veneers if you have imperfections in your teeth, such as:

  • Stains
  • Cracks
  • Gaps
  • Misshapen teeth

Porcelain veneers can also help strengthen delicate teeth. They cause minimal gum irritation, and you can look great without having any invasive dental work.

Porcelain veneers offer a safe, long-lasting, and cost-effective solution to aesthetic problems. There are also other options available at Preva Dental for improving the appearance of your teeth, including laser teeth whitening and crowns.

What is involved in fitting porcelain veneers?

At your first appointment, your Preva Dental provider examines your teeth and gums and may perform some X-rays of your teeth. They review your treatment options and show you what you can achieve with porcelain veneers.

If you choose to go ahead with porcelain veneers, your provider reshapes your teeth by taking off a tiny amount of the tooth’s enamel from the surface. Next, your provider creates a mold of your teeth that they send to a specialist dental lab. The skilled technicians at the lab make your custom veneers using the mold as a template.

When your porcelain veneers are ready, you return to Preva Dental for a fitting. Your provider cleans your teeth and etches the surfaces, so they bond firmly with your porcelain veneers. To attach your porcelain veneers, your provider applies a unique bonding liquid and shines a special light on your teeth to speed up the process.

How do I care for porcelain veneers?

You should continue caring for your teeth as normal and attend regular checkups after having porcelain veneers. They typically last from 5-10 years, and sometimes longer.
