All About Porcelain Veneers

In case you ever wondered, dental veneers are a popular and safe way to restore teeth to their natural luster and beauty. To this end, dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are adhered directly over the top of the existing teeth to alter their appearance for a more and beautiful smile. They can be used to repair tooth damage when a patient has broken, chipped, cracked or even gapped teeth. They can also be used to make the teeth look straighter or whiter too. They have been proven to be the most effective way to correct natural tooth defects in the mouth. They are used in smile makeovers to achieve the dream smile that a patient wants and desires right now.

How Veneers Work

To illustrate, let’s talk about how veneers work. Veneers are made of a fine material that match the color of the patient’s existing teeth. They are undetectable when the person who has them is talking, eating or smiling. This means that people won’t be able to tell they aren’t their natural teeth when communicating with others in daily social interactions. They also are comfortable to wear, and are brushed and flossed just like natural teeth. They are custom made for each patient and are easily placed on teeth as part of the procedure to provide veneers for the patient.

During the first appointment to discuss porcelain veneers, a cosmetic dentist will learn about the goals the patient has to restore his or her smile to its natural luster. At this time, the patients also can ask any questions they may have about the veneers process. The teeth are also prepped for temporary veneers at this time. Then, at the next appointment, the permanent veneers are adhered to the teeth. Before this happens, the dentist will etch away some of the natural enamel in order that the veneers adhere their best to the surface areas of the patient’s teeth. What results is a natural and beautiful smile for the patient, where most patients notice an immediate difference in their smile and self-confidence to have their teeth restored to their natural beauty.
