What are Porcelain Veneers and How Can They Transform my Smile?
Veneers are made of lustrous porcelain that is as strong as tooth enamel and resistant to stains. The veneers are ultra-thin shells affixed to the front of a tooth with a curing light. Most people choose to treat the social six, or the six most visible teeth in the upper and lower jaw.
Porcelain veneers are a minimally invasive way to transform the shade, shape, and size of teeth. They can treat many imperfections, such as teeth that are:
- Mildly misaligned
- Chipped, worn or cracked
What is the Procedure for Placing Porcelain Veneers?
This treatment can quickly be completed in two office visits. Dr. Sabharwal takes an accurate impression of your teeth, which he sends to a trusted lab. The dental lab designs your custom veneers to perfectly fit the unique contours of your teeth. The veneers are placed onto teeth at the second visit.
Patients can participate in designing their veneers, giving input on specific preferences they have in shade and shape.
Things to Consider Before Treatment
Many patients opt to undergo teeth whitening treatment before placing porcelain veneers on their teeth. Since veneers are matched to surrounding dentition, having teeth at their brightest will produce an optimal result.
Porcelain veneers last for many years; however, some may eventually need replacement. There is a small percentage of people who may not be good candidates for this procedure due to insufficient tooth enamel, but SKS Dental has other options to offer patients.
