Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers consist of a thin layer of porcelain that is placed over the surface of your front 16 teeth, which are the most visible when you smile. They can cover any chips or cracks in the teeth, as well as make your teeth appear whiter. Many people refer to veneers as "instant orthodontics" due to their ability to correct minor spacing issues in the front teeth.
Candidates for porcelain veneers may have:
- Small cracks or chips in their front teeth.
- Enamel that has worn down, giving their teeth a yellow appearance.
- Noticeable gaps between teeth.
- Teeth that have gradually been worn down from overuse.
- Teeth that have become uneven.
While most people think of them as a cosmetic solution first, porcelain veneers also offer certain functional advantages. The hard outer shell protects your teeth from damage, and placing veneers over cracked teeth can strengthen the underlying structure.
Porcelain Veneers Preparation and Placement
Most procedures for porcelain veneers are completed in two appointments after your initial consultation. During the first appointment, Dr. Davis will prepare your teeth for veneers, give you temporary tooth coverings, and take measurements for your permanent veneers.
Some things that Dr. Davis may do to prepare you for veneers:
- Conduct a "smile analysis" to determine what issues the veneers should address.
- Roughen and reduce the smooth surface of your teeth to make veneers adhere better.
- Allow you to see how you look with different types of veneers on your teeth.
- Create a mock-up of how you could look after your surgery.
In your final procedure, Dr. Davis will place your customized porcelain veneers, giving you the dazzling smile you've been hoping for. You can leave our office confident in the appearance of your teeth.
