Porcelain Veneers Q & A

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded and placed over the visible, outer-facing portion of your teeth to enhance the look of your smile. They’re shaped and colored to look just like your natural teeth, allowing them to blend in with your smile while improving its appearance.

Why should I get porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers can drastically improve the appearance of your smile by addressing a number of cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Discoloration from stains or aging
  • Teeth that have been chipped, cracked, or worn down
  • Large gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

Porcelain veneers also carry a number of advantages and benefits, such as:

  • Stain resistance
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Minimal invasiveness

By correcting minor imperfections while maintaining the look and feel of your natural teeth, porcelain veneers are an excellent option for those looking to enhance their smile.

How do I get porcelain veneers?

The first step in getting porcelain veneers is to book a consultation with the talented team of dentists at Smiles Family Dental. They’ll examine your teeth and gums to determine whether they’re healthy enough to have porcelain veneers. Veneers require that you have a significant amount of healthy enamel on your teeth, and that you don’t grind your teeth while you sleep.

If your dentist determines that you’re a good candidate for veneers, the next thing they’ll do is work with you to design your smile using Digital Smile Design technology. Your dentist takes a series of photos to create a digital mock-up of what your smile will look like after you’ve had your veneers, creating the best design for you by taking into account the particular proportions and relationship between your gums, teeth, smile, and the features of your face.

Once your veneers have been constructed, your dentist shaves off a thin layer of enamel from your natural teeth, places the veneers, and bonds them to your teeth using a permanent dental sealant, instantly brightening up your smile!
