ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS RIGHT FOR ME?

Porcelain veneers are a way to restore your bright, white smile by applying a very thin material to the front surface of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are custom made to fit to the shape of the tooth, adding length and shape, as well as color and adding size to small teeth.They can be used on teeth that are discolored from medications or years of eating and drinking staining foods and beverages. They can also coverporcelain veneers chipped, worn down, or broken teeth. Even teeth with gaps or that are irregularly shaped can be hidden by porcelain veneers.What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

Once your dentist has determined that you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers, your teeth will be prepared for the application. The dentist will administer a local anesthesia and a half millimeter of the tooth’s surface will be removed to fit the veneer properly. Then an impression of the teeth will be taken so the veneers can be properly fitted. It takes approximately two weeks for your custom veneers to be made.

When the porcelain veneers are ready, the dentist will fit them properly to your teeth and ensure they are also the right color. Your teeth will then be cleaned, polished, and etched to ensure that the bond between the veneers and your teeth is and remains strong. The veneers are then bonded to your teeth with dental cement and final adjustments are made.

The result is a perfect smile. The porcelain veneers resist stains, maintaining your beautiful smile and it reflects light just like natural teeth, so the look is brighter but natural. As with any procedure, there are pros and cons that you should discuss with your dentist so you can decide if porcelain veneers are right for you.

The costs are incredibly high, even with insurance. I would not go back and not refer anyone. I am going to try to be placed with a different primary care dentist.

He is very patient and kind when dealing with TMD. I also like his techniques he uses to get to the root of the issue and not just patch it up like many dentists I have dealt with before.
