What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, or dental veneers, are durable cosmetic solutions that conceal minor imperfections in your smile, including chipped, cracked, or stained teeth. These thin porcelain shells are affixed to the front surface of your teeth to mask these imperfections allowing you to present a seamless smile to the world.
How can Veneers Help?
Porcelain veneers are used to treat various dental issues and help cover or correct many cosmetic imperfections with your smile. Veneers may be the ideal treatment solution if your teeth are:
- Discolored, stained, or yellowed
- Widely spaced
- Worn, cracked, chipped, or broken
- Misaligned or crooked
- Unevenly sized or shaped
The Porcelain Veneers Process
Patients can receive dental veneers in as few as two appointments. The first step is a consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Abraham, our cosmetic dentist in Dearborn, MI, will examine your teeth to determine the extent of the damage to your teeth. This is also the best opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have, so don’t hesitate to ask. During this appointment, we can also begin the veneer process. Your dentist will first buff and reshape the surface of the teeth, creating a perfectly textured surface for the veneers to adhere to.
The second appointment is the actual application of the dental veneers. Dr. Abraham will take an impression of your teeth and help you choose the new shade of your smile. After a simple application, you’re free to enjoy your stunning new smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
Porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years before needing to be replaced. To get the most out of your dental veneers, you must practice good dental hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing keep your mouth free of harmful bacteria, which can help extend the lifespan of your porcelain veneers.
Receiving porcelain veneers is a painless process! Your dentist will administer a local anesthetic before prepping your teeth and placing your veneers. It’s normal to feel some mild soreness when your anesthetic wears off after your procedure. However, any discomfort should subside within a few hours and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
If your veneer falls off or becomes damaged, do not attempt to fix or reattach it yourself. Call your dentist immediately to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. At your appointment, your veneer provider will assess the damage and recommend reattachment or having a new veneer crafted.
