What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a type of cosmetic restoration that consist of thin shells made of ceramic porcelain designed to cover and hide multiple minor dental issues at one time. Veneers keep you from having multiple invasive and painful procedures to fix problems that are not damaging your dental health. Dr. Nguyen can create a custom set of porcelain veneers that mold perfectly to your teeth and help address your dental concerns. Porcelain veneers can work to treat many issues, including:

  • Uneven teeth
  • Staining
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Tooth size
  • Other minor dental problems

Porcelain veneers are made with multiple things in mind, such as your lip shape and skin color, so that you can achieve the most natural appearance possible.

What should I know about porcelain veneers?

There are many benefits to getting porcelain veneers. For example, you can create a brighter, whiter smile that you love with easy maintenance. This is also a long-lasting treatment, and most veneers last for over ten years if properly cared for. Porcelain veneers are ideal for those who want to change the physical appearance of their smile, have overall good oral health, and do not want to get painful and invasive procedures. Recovery is basically nonexistent with porcelain veneers. Following your procedure, you can return to your normal daily activities. Your teeth may be sensitive to hot and cold temperatures for a few days afterward.

How are porcelain veneers done?

The first step to any dental procedure is a consultation to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. Dr. Nguyen will speak to you about your dental health and any goals, needs, and concerns you may have. If you are a good candidate for veneers, you can start the treatment process. Veneers are typically completed in two sessions. The first session consists of prepping your teeth by roughening and reshaping them. Dental impressions will also be taken so that the veneers can be made. Porcelain veneers can be made in-house or sent to a special laboratory. Once these veneers are finished, you can start your second appointment. Your teeth will be cleaned and polished so that your veneers can be bonded to your teeth. This is done using a special adhesive. Dr. Nguyen can then make any small adjustments needed so that you are as comfortable as possible.
