What Do Porcelain Veneers Do?
Porcelain veneers is great way to change your smile relatively fast. These thin, custom-made porcelain shells fit perfectly onto your teeth. The porcelain material mimics the translucent qualities of your teeth and provides a virtually indistinguishable restoration. With a simple preparation process to create a smooth surface for bonding, veneers can fix a number of dental flaws, including:
- Severe stains from tetracycline
- Worn down teeth from grinding or clenching
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Misshaped, uneven or gapped teeth
Additionally, as an alternative Dr. Stewart offers composite resin veneers. Though less invasive than a porcelain veneer, composite resin tends to stain easily, whereas porcelain is quite stain-resistant.
How Long Does the Porcelain Veneer Process Take?
Typically, just two visits can transform your smile. During the first visit, the dentist will prepare your teeth, take impressions, and outfits you with temporary veneers while a highly-skilled ceramist at a dental lab creates a permanent set. At the second visit, Dr. Stewart removes the temporaries and permanently bonds the newly-formed porcelain veneers to your prepared teeth for a total rejuvenation of your smile. The results appear natural and hide virtually any imperfection that existed before the procedure took place.
