What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a great way to transform your smile without invasive surgeries or procedures. These thin veneers are durable, since they can last for over 10 years before replacement is needed. Veneers can help to cover up flaws like cracks, chips, gaps, spaces and discoloration. You may want veneers because of an upcoming event, like a wedding, or just because you are ready for a complete cosmetic change.
Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?
Veneers can cover up imperfections at the front of your smile. Whether your front teeth are dull, yellow, stained, chipped, cracked or unevenly spaced, veneers can perfect the look of your teeth without the need for invasive procedures or treatments. Most often, veneers can be placed in just two visits into the office. The first visit involves preparing the teeth for the veneers and taking impressions and the second visit involves placing the permanent veneers.
Who is a candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Most patients who want veneers can safely and easily have them made and placed. Dr. Bloom will first examine your teeth before placing veneers. If the teeth are decayed or experiencing other dental problems, we may recommend other treatments before veneers can be made. This ensures that the teeth the veneers are being placed on are solid and healthy.
What happens during the Porcelain Veneer procedure?
The procedure often involves a local anesthetic used to numb the front area. Dr. Bloom will then buff and slightly file down the front teeth. Impressions are taken to be used to make the new veneers. You will then come in for a second visit so that the veneers can be placed. We will adjust the look of the veneers to ensure they are perfect and fitting to your smile. You will be amazed at how different your smile looks thanks to the cosmetic brilliance of porcelain veneers.
