What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

The main benefit of these wafer-thin porcelain coverings is that they can conceal multiple smile flaws at once. Pretty much any cosmetic imperfection in your grin can easily be corrected with veneers. They will allow you to smile with confidence once again, since they look, feel, and function just like natural tooth enamel. They are highly resistant to stains, so you won’t have to worry about future discoloration.

Veneers also allow you to keep more of your natural tooth structure than some other cosmetic treatments, like crowns. Once your remove enamel from the tooth, it’s gone forever. That’s why it’s important to keep as much of it as you can. Porcelain veneers require that a tiny sliver of enamel be removed to ensure that they lay flush against your teeth, but the amount is minimal, and it will be worth it to see your beautiful pearly whites smiling back at you in the mirror.

Finally, veneers require very little effort to maintain. In fact, taking care of them is quite similar to caring for your natural teeth. Just remember to brush and floss every day, and schedule a checkup and cleaning with us at least once every six months.

What Issues Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?

Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a wide variety of smile flaws, such as:

  • Slight gaps between teeth
  • Teeth that misshapen, rotated, or slightly misaligned
  • Teeth that are discolored
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth

If these issues have been bothering you for a while, perhaps it’s time to give veneers some consideration.

What Is the Veneers Process Like?

After we determine that veneers are right for you with a consultation, the process takes two appointments. The first visit is about preparation. Either Dr. Blake or Dr. Gadeburg will trim a small amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. Local anesthetic may or may not be necessary. Next, we’ll take impressions of your prepared teeth, which are then sent to our dental lab. We can fix you with temporary veneers to wear until your permanent ones are ready.

You’ll have to return to our office in two to four weeks, whenever your new smile is ready. From there, we will permanently bond your veneers to your teeth. Your smile is instantly transformed, and all your imperfections are corrected at once. With regular maintenance, your veneers can last up to fifteen years before they need to be replaced.
