Often times patients will ask what is the best way for them to restore their smile into the smile they always wanted and the answer is typically porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can correct just about any dental problem you have. Whether it’s misaligned teeth, gaps, stains or spots, veneers will fix them while maintaining that natural look. You may have some questions about porcelain veneers and in this blog, I will answer the most common questions patients have.
First, what are porcelain veneers? Veneers are a thin (about the size of a contact lens) tooth- colored porcelain shell that is perfectly crafted to look like your natural teeth and bonded to cover the front of your tooth or teeth. Porcelain veneers are often times used as a different method to a crown and can be a better option if the underlying tooth is strong and healthy.
When are veneers best used? Veneers are best used for dental problems such as, chipped, misshaped, stained, or misaligned teeth and the list goes on. They are especially great if the tooth or teeth that are having problems are the visible or front teeth.
How long does the whole process take? At Philly Dentistry you can expect the whole process to be only two visits. The first visit we will discuss with you the type of veneers you would like and which look best for your natural smile. We will then take impressions to send to our trusted lab so they can craft your perfect smile. When you come back for your second visit one of our amazing doctors will deliver the veneers for you and give you that smile you always wanted.
The process of porcelain veneers starts by removing a very thin layer of your tooth enamel to prepare, so that it allows room for the veneer to be bonded into place. After that, we then take an impression of your teeth so the veneers fit and match perfectly to your unique smile. The veneers are then bonded into place and then we use a special light that activates the cement to make sure the veneers are firmly in place. After that process you have a brand-new, perfect smile!
