What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Our cosmetic dentistry solutions are customized from high-quality dental porcelain, which closely resembles your teeth. These wafer-thin shells cover imperfections such as discoloration, chips, cracks, and misalignment, giving you a flawless smile.
How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
Your journey begins with a consultation with Dr. Behbood, our dentist in Warren. During this appointment, she’ll assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and determine if porcelain veneers are the right choice for you.
If you proceed with porcelain veneers, Dr. Behbood will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. This plan will outline the number of veneers needed, their shape and color, and the treatment timeline.
Before placing the veneers, a small amount of enamel is removed from the front surface of your teeth. This preparation ensures a seamless fit and natural appearance. Dr. Behbood will then take impressions of your teeth to serve as a blueprint for your custom veneers.
While your permanent veneers are being crafted in a dental laboratory, Dr. Behbood will fit temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth and maintain aesthetics.
Once your custom veneers are ready, you will return to the dental office for their placement. Your dentist will ensure fit, color, and shape are perfect before bonding them to your teeth using a dental adhesive.
We’ll make any necessary adjustments to ensure the veneers feel comfortable and function properly. Dr. Behbood will also provide aftercare instructions and schedule a follow-up appointment to evaluate the success of the treatment.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers offer a range of benefits that make them a popular choice for smile makeovers:
- Enhanced Appearance: Porcelain veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile by concealing dental imperfections and creating a uniform, natural-looking set of teeth.
- Stain Resistance: Unlike natural tooth enamel, porcelain is highly resistant to stains. This means your veneers will maintain their beautiful, bright appearance even after consuming stain-causing beverages like coffee or wine.
- Durability: With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for many years. They can withstand normal biting and chewing forces, providing a long-lasting solution for smile enhancement.
- Customization: Porcelain veneers are customized to suit your unique smile goals. Your Warren dentist will work closely with you to choose the right shape, size, and color that complements your facial features and desired outcome.
Caring for Your Veneers
Following your veneer treatment, make sure to avoid certain foods until you’ve fully adjusted to your new smile. After a few weeks, there shouldn’t be any diet restrictions unless otherwise noted by Dr. Behbood.
Food that may cause damage to your new veneers include:
- Hard candy
Fortunately, veneers require little to no extra maintenance. Just make sure to brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, and use an antibacterial mouthwash. We also encourage routine checkups at our Warren dental office once every six months.
