What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are
thin shells made of porcelain
that adhere to the surface of the teeth. These coverings are usually used to conceal a range of cosmetic issues like
gaps, discoloration, and cracked and chipped teeth. Unlike dental implants, which cover the entire tooth, veneers
only cover the front of the tooth.
Porcelain veneers are tooth-colored. They are also made to replicate the reflective quality of teeth to make your
smile look as natural as possible, as seen in our porcelain veneers photos. Your dentist will customize your
veneers' size, shape and color to fit your smile. The installation procedure involves a dentist grinding your teeth
down to roughen the surface and help the veneers stay in place, then attaching them with a strong adhesive.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Veneers last longer when they are bonded entirely to the surface. This is especially true for porcelain veneers,
which can last up to 15 years. Their life span can be extended with proper maintenance. Composite resin veneers,
which are an alternative to porcelain options, typically last up to seven years.
Porcelain veneers are smooth and durable and do not stain or lose their color. They are comparably stronger than
composite resin veneers. Composite resin veneers can be applied with virtually no tooth preparation needed, bu they
are more susceptible to wear and tear, staining, discoloration, and chipping.
To make veneers last longer, you will need to practice good oral hygiene, wear teeth protection like a mouthguard,
and avoid grinding your teeth and biting hard surfaces.
When Are Veneers Needed?
People who want to enhance the appearance of their smile can be a candidate for veneers. You might need veneers
when you want to conceal the following dental imperfections:
- Cracked or chipped teeth.
- Severe discoloration or uneven coloring that doesn’t improve with teeth whitening.
- Worn down teeth.
- Misaligned, irregular-shaped or uneven teeth.
- Gaps between teeth.
While veneers are one of the least invasive cosmetic procedures available, it is important to note that not
everyone can get them. If you have gum disease, extensive cavities, bruxism, severe tooth crowding or other serious
dental issues, you will need to address those problems before you can be a candidate for veneers.
