What Can Porcelain Veneers Address?

Porcelain veneers offer an extensive range of benefits for patients who want to improve the look of their smile. With porcelain veneers, you can address many common cosmetic dental concerns and achieve a natural-looking result. For instance, veneers can help create a more symmetrical smile for patients with a crooked tooth or two. In addition, veneers can also address issues such as chips, fractures, uneven teeth, stained teeth, and damaged teeth.

Veneers are thin, ceramic shells that our dentist permanently bonds to the front and sides of your teeth to create a seamless smile. Dental-grade ceramic closely mimics the appearance of the natural teeth. Which makes it one of the most ideal compounds for natural-looking veneers.

At the Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry, we strive for dental excellence. We use the highest quality materials and state-of-the-art dental technology to craft your high-quality veneers.

Some of the benefits of porcelain veneers include:

  • Resembles the natural teeth
  • Customizable to meet your cosmetic goals
  • Can last many years with routine care
  • Easy to maintain
  • Can address a wide range of cosmetic concerns
  • Enhance the appearance of your smile

What To Expect During The Porcelain Veneers Process

Understand how porcelain veneers work and what you can expect from the procedure. If porcelain veneers are right for you, your treatment will begin with an in-depth dental exam. During your initial exam, Dr. Weiss or Dr. Stein will determine if we need to address any underlying concerns.

We need to make sure you have good oral health before providing you with dental veneers. We also need to make sure you are free of periodontal disease and tooth decay. Our dentist will need to address all dental issues before starting any cosmetic work so that your results last.

Next, we will take high-quality digital impressions and a shade analysis of your teeth. This will aid in the fabrication of your custom veneers. We will send the impressions to our dental lab, where a master ceramist will craft your veneers.

During the fabrication process, Dr. Stein or Dr. Weiss will gently file your natural teeth. We will file off a little bit of the front to create an adequate bonding surface for your new veneers.

Because of the amount of preparation our dentist does to your teeth, dental veneers are a permanent restoration. With proper care and excellent oral hygiene, custom porcelain veneers can last many years.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

You probably still have a lot of questions about this cosmetic dental treatment. The following are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions that we get about porcelain veneers.

Do teeth decay under veneers?

While there is no evidence that dental veneers cause tooth decay or damage, it is possible for teeth to decay under veneers. Cavities can form behind veneers resulting in tooth decay.

This can happen because of many reasons. A dentist can incorrectly place a veneer, leaving spaces where bacteria can thrive. Or maybe the dentist did not completely clean the tooth before placing the veneer. Maybe you don’t wash your mouth and brush your teeth well enough.

Whatever the reason, this will threaten your oral health and can shorten the lifespan of your veneers. If your dentist removes a veneer for any reason, your natural tooth may begin to feel sensitive. But the dentist should be able to fix the decay and place a new veneer.

Do porcelain veneers break easily?

Porcelain veneers do not break easily. They are durable and are slightly stronger than natural tooth enamel. However, veneers can break or crack, so it’s still important to be careful. For example, do not chew on ice or use your teeth to open things as this can cause damage to your porcelain veneers.

Do veneers stay white?

Dental veneers that consist of porcelain are highly stain-resistant, so they will stay white for quite some time. A proper diet and a good oral care routine can help veneers stay white longer. On average, they remain white for about 10 years before you need to replace them.

Coffee, red wine, and any deeply-colored foods and drinks are more likely to stain your veneers. Furthermore, your dentist can not whiten porcelain prosthetics such as veneers.
