What Are Dental Veneers?
By definition, a veneer is a material of superior value that is placed over an inferior surface. Porcelain veneers fit that description perfectly. Made of high-quality dental porcelain—or sometimes composite resin material—veneers are used to conceal teeth that have any number of cosmetic imperfections, such as:
- Chips and cracks
- Breaks and fractures
- Stains and discoloration
- Gaps and irregular spacing
In addition, veneers can be used to change the size, shape, and alignment of a tooth. Whether your teeth are compromised by one of these flaws or several, porcelain veneers can give you a smile that is beautiful and will give you a new sense of confidence.
The Process of Getting Veneers
With the aid of X-rays, impressions, and photos, our dentists create a smile that is made just for you!
Placing porcelain veneers happens over two appointments. First, your dentist files down a micro-thin layer of tooth enamel. This is a permanent alteration that must be made to accommodate the veneers. Although porcelain veneers are very thin, they can still stick out if we don’t make room for them.
Once your teeth are prepped, you’ll wear a temporary acrylic set of veneers while your permanent ones are handcrafted in a dental lab. In about two weeks, you’ll return to your River Ridge dentist to have each veneer bonded into place. With regular dental checkups and proper oral hygiene at home, your porcelain veneers can last for many years.
