Porcelain Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are wafer-thin sheets or shells that cover the front surface of your teeth, to recreate the look and feel of your natural teeth. Your dentist custom-fits and bonds each veneer to each tooth to restore frail and weak teeth. Veneers can cover up imperfections, such as gaps, cracks, stains, or misshapen teeth.

Porcelain and composite resin are effective dental materials typically used to create your beautiful veneers. Veneers usually require a few office visits. Your dentist can fit some composite resin veneers in just one office visit.

While composite veneers are often more affordable, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and a close match to your natural tooth enamel.

Lumineers

PK Cosmetic and Family Dentistry also provide Lumineers. Lumineers are similar to veneers, but they involve minimal prep and feature a more translucent appearance. Your dentist bonds the thin Lumineer directly to your tooth without having to prepare your tooth enamel.

What’s involved in getting veneers?

The first step is to decide the best type of veneers to suit you.

Your dentist prepares your teeth for your new veneers in-office. Your dentist might carefully remove a minute amount of surface enamel to prepare and shape your existing teeth ready for your new veneers.

Your dentist usually creates a mold of your teeth before sending it to a dental lab where a qualified dental lab technician creates your custom veneers.

In about a week or two, when your new veneers are ready, you return to PK Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, where your dentist custom fits your veneers to each tooth.

Your dentist gently cleans and etches the surface of your teeth to get them ready for the bonding process. Your dentist applies a special dental cement and light source to bond the adhesive and porcelain together successfully.

What are the advantages of veneers?

PK Cosmetic and Family Dentistry provides veneers due to the numerous benefits.

Veneers are natural-looking, long-lasting, and stain-resistant. Veneers are well-tolerated by your gums, and the treatment doesn’t involve any invasive dental work.

This innovative and popular dental treatment can strengthen and protect the surface of your teeth from damage and give you a bright, white, beautiful, and properly aligned smile.

Veneers could be the perfect choice to correct cracked, crooked, or misshapen teeth and effectively lighten darker teeth.
