What You Need To Know About Porcelain Veneers

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that fit snugly over your natural tooth. Your dentist will need to carefully etch your natural tooth to accommodate your porcelain veneers.

What problems can porcelain veneers fix?

Porcelain veneers can be a long-lasting, natural-looking solution for patients dealing with a wide range of dental concerns. Porcelain veneers can be used to enhance the appearance of gapped teeth, uneven teeth, discolored teeth, or chipped or cracked teeth.

Am I a good candidate for porcelain veneers?

During your consultation, one of our dentists will discuss your dental goals, budget, and condition of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are considered an irreversible procedure because of the amount of tooth preparation needed. Our dentists will work with you to determine if porcelain veneers or another cosmetic dentistry treatment is right for you. It is important that patient and dentist work together to find the right solution.

What should I expect during the porcelain veneers process?

Receiving porcelain veneers may require anywhere from 2-3 visits to our Worcester dental office. During your first appointment, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth as well as discuss the size, color, and fit of your porcelain veneers. You will also be given temporary veneers while your permanent veneers are fabricated. Once your porcelain veneers are created, your dentist will carefully attach your porcelain veneers and make any final adjustment.

How do I take care of porcelain veneers?

It is important to schedule regular visits to the dentist as well as practice a healthy oral hygiene routine. Although porcelain veneers are not your natural teeth, it is important to take care of them like you would your natural teeth.
