Porcelain veneers are small porcelain shells which are designed to give teeth a natural look, as well as strength and durability which is akin to tooth enamel. Many dentists prefer using these veneers when altering the shape, color or size of a tooth, and porcelain is the preferred material as it has properties which make it excellent for use in the mouth.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are superior to natural teeth as they are resistant to coffee, cigarette and tea stains. Veneers are also versatile in that they can be sculpted to suit the needs of each patient. As porcelain has an appearance and texture which is similar to tooth enamel, it difficult to distinguish it from normal teeth. Another benefit of veneers is that they leave the teeth largely undisturbed. Only a small portion of the teeth must be altered to fit them.
Porcelain Veneers | FAQ
Do porcelain veneers require regular maintenance?
The maintenance required for veneers is the same as natural teeth. You will want to brush and floss regularly, and be sure to use toothpaste which is non-abrasive. Your dentist will require you to visit the office occasionally so he can monitor the veneers to ensure they are functioning properly.
Are there any risks involved with using porcelain veneers?
When veneers are added to teeth, they require a bit of the natural tooth enamel to be removed, and this is a process that is permanent, and cannot be reversed. While it is possible to add new veneers you won’t be able to restore the tooth to its original condition. Once the veneer has been installed patients may also notice an increased sensitivity to cold or hot temperatures. This is a result of the removal of the tooth enamel, but will only be temporary.
When should porcelain veneers be used?
Porcelain veneers are excellent for situations where the original teeth have deteriorated in shape, contour or color. Dentists also used them in situations where the teeth have been fractured, or its position has been compromised. Many patients prefer veneers because other methods of tooth whitening such as bleaching are ineffective.
About the Procedure
Porcelain veneers are comprised of multiple ceramic layers which are thin. The purpose of these veneers is to replace natural tooth enamel which has been lost. When adding a porcelain veneer the dentist must remove a small bit of the original enamel, which is typically under a millimeter. This is necessary as it provides space for the porcelain to be placed inside the mouth and allows the tooth to function while giving it a superior appearance. Dentists can also use cosmetic imaging to show how your smile will look after the procedure is completed.
