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 a phenomenal way to fix a myriad of tooth imperfections such as chips, stains, yellowing, unattractive shape, or minimal misalignment.
Have you ever sought a minimally invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your answer! Durable, 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 upgrade and the overall condition of your teeth. Doctor Buchheit will guide you on the most successful strategy.
The thickness, color, alignment, and shape of your teeth affect the 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 definitely want to have them constructed 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 create the veneers to the precise size, shape, color, and degree 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 slightly, with proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years. Doctor Buchheit 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 fix the same varieties of imperfections. Dental bonding generally has a shorter life span than veneers, so keep this in mind when comparing the price tags of the two procedures.
