Today’s article focuses on an effective and versatile cosmetic dental procedure—porcelain veneers.
Veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth. They are an exceptional way to fix a myriad of tooth imperfections such as chips, stains, yellowing, unattractive shapes, or minimal misalignment.
Have you ever wished for a minimally invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your solution! Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.
How many veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to enhance and the overall condition of your teeth. Doctor Massie can advise you on the most beneficial strategy.
The thickness, color, alignment, and shape of your teeth affect the final result as well as whether you have any gum recession. Veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you want to have them produced in the same “batch” at the lab.
The first step in the veneer process is to make a model of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician will use the model to engineer the veneers to the accurate size, shape, color, and level of translucency. Experienced cosmetic dentists and dental technicians elevate the level of artistry in this It is an involved process.
Many patients wonder if veneers are as durable as their natural teeth. Though the veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth very slightly, with proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years. doctor Massie will advise you in detail on the proper care of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are more durable than dental bonding, which is sometimes used to repair the same types of imperfections. Dental bonding generally has a shorter life span than veneers, so keep this in mind when comparing the relative costs of the two procedures.
