Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile.  They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.

Venners Could Help in:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile and to correct imperfections

  • Severely discolored or stained teeth.

  • To shape a tooth that doesn’t fit with the rest of the teeth

  • To close gaps and spaces between teeth



Veneers are a simple way to have a “facing” put on their teeth while preserving most of the natural tooth structure of the teeth. The preparation for veneers is painless and requires minor shaving down of the front surfaces of the teeth. Veneers are made of compressed porcelain and are bonded to the face of teeth much like artificial nails are applied or contact lenses. Veneers are fabricated in a laboratory using the most state of the art techniques.

In many cases, patients choose to have all six of their front teeth veneered to achieve a “Hollywood smile". By having veneers placed on all six of the front teeth, the lab can fabricate a natural smile line and avoid an unnatural look.

Every smile is as unique as the person who wears it. We take great care in designing a smile that suite the individual patient. A series of careful facial measurements will help the doctors to create a smile that is in proportion to your bone, structure, age and gender.

Thanks to advances in computer technology, we are also able to show you an image of your new smile before you even begin the procedure. Through digital imaging software we are able to manipulate a digital photograph of your existing smile and show you your redesigned smile. This is an excellent way to share your excitement with your friends and family!

We ensure to include our patients in the selection of their new look by providing with different choices regarding their smile via simulation of the final look through either computer aided simulation or fabrication of a trial set of composite veneers for the patient to try and doing the needed adjustments before ordering the porcelain veneers.

What is involved in preparing your teeth for veneers


Since they require approximately 0.5 mm of tooth reduction, porcelain veneers are not considered a reversible form of treatment.

Occasionally, the preparation of a porcelain laminate veneer does not necessitate the use of a local anesthetic. However, for those patients that are particularly sensitive or anxious, a local anesthetic is advisable.

The laboratory time required for the fabrication of a porcelain laminate veneer is approximately one week, although this may vary.

You can expect some sensitivity to hot and cold. This is normal and is due to the removal of a small portion of the tooth's enamel covering. This sensitivity should disappear a few days after the placement of the veneers.

The insertion or cementation of your laminate veneers can be accomplished once again with or without local anesthetic. This visit is usually longer in length. The laminates are placed with a light-sensitive resin hardened with the use of a white light, effectively bonding them to your teeth.

Once placed, your laminate veneers are very strong and will resist most of the forces placed upon them by a normal diet. Porcelain is a glass and like glass it is strong, but brittle. Therefore, you should avoid anything that will tend to stress the laminate veneer. Opening pistachio nuts with your teeth, chewing on bones or candy apples is probably not a good idea. As with most things, common sense should prevail.

 

Frequently asked questions about Veneers:


Q. How long does porcelain veneers last?

A. They can last from 7 to 20 years. While the veneer itself is inert and non-living, the tooth or teeth to which they are attached, and the surrounding gum tissues are living and may change. If a veneer comes off it can generally be rebonded. If it chips it can sometimes be rebonded or otherwise replaced.

 

Q. Do porcelain veneers stain withnormal things like tea, coffee and wine?

A. Porcelain veneers should never stain, however if your teeth have a propensity to stain you should try to avoid or minimize the behaviors that lead to staining, and look after them with normal hygiene and maintenance procedures.


Q. If I have my upper teeth treated with porcelain veneers will my lower teeth still be a different color, or more yellow?

A. This is certainly a factor that will be discussed during your evaluation and smile design so that everything matches and blends well. Most patients usually whiten the lower teeth with whitening (bleaching) procedures to ensure a good match.


Q. Can I brush and floss my teeth after veneers and do I still have to come for professional Hygiene appointments?

A. Brush and floss as you normally would to prevent dental problems. Porcelain veneers are one of the kindest restorations to gum tissues that we currently have in dentistry. Don't be afraid of damaging your laminates by either flossing or brushing. Any non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste is acceptable. A good home care regimen will insure the esthetic success of your laminate restorations for years to come.


Q. Will I have to avoid eating certain foods?

A. Once placed, your laminate veneers are very strong and will resist most of the forces placed upon them by a normal diet. Porcelain is a glass and like glass it is strong, but brittle. Therefore, you should avoid anything that will tend to stress the laminate veneer. Opening pistachio nuts with your teeth, chewing on bones or candy apples is probably not a good idea. As with most things, common sense should prevail.


Q. Can I have veneers if I am clench my teeth at night?

A. If you are known to be a bruxer or clencher, i.e. you have a habit of grinding your teeth, please let your dentist know. He or she will fabricate a protective “occlusal” or bite guard for you to wear to minimize the stresses placed upon your teeth while you sleep.
