Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?

When teeth are chipped, broken, cracked, uneven, or discolored, porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic solution to turn your less-than-perfect smile into something bright and refreshed. They are essentially thin shells of porcelain that fit on top of your teeth, match the tooth color, and are custom-designed to look natural…only better. The process will require two visits to the office. During your first visit, a bit of the tooth structure will be removed so the veneers don’t protrude. You will also be fitted for the right shape and size and the details will be sent to the lab. In a few weeks, the veneers will be created and ready for placement so you will return to the office for the next appointment for the bonding to set the veneers in place permanently. While you are eagerly waiting for your porcelain veneers to arrive back at the office, temporary ones will be placed so you can get an idea of how they will look and feel. If you are not happy for any reason, this is the time to readjust and reshape to your preference and comfort level. The entire process is pain-free and the veneers will stay in place and hold up well for years to come. In fact, they can last for decades if cared for properly.
