Treatment with Porcelain Veneers
Before beginning treatment, Dr. Patel will examine your smile and learn more about your cosmetic goals, budget, and oral health needs. If there are any dental issues that need to be addressed prior to treatment, we can treat them in our office before applying your porcelain veneers. This is important for a stable result.
In order to create a proper bonding surface for the veneers, a small amount of enamel will be removed from the teeth. Dental impressions will then be taken of your teeth so that the veneers fit onto teeth properly. The specifications of your veneer shape and color will be sent to a dental lab for fabrication.
When the dental veneers are complete, the surface of your teeth will be cleaned and polished and the veneers will be carefully bonded to your teeth. Any final adjustments will be made to ensure that the veneers fit comfortably. Because the dental veneers are crafted from porcelain, they will reflect light and feel like natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent restoration, but can be repaired or replaced should damage occur. Your new porcelain veneers will last for up to 10 years or more with proper dental care and oral hygiene.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Are there negative side effects of porcelain veneers?
Before having porcelain veneers placed patients should be aware of some attributes that may affect their veneers experience. Porcelain veneers are permanent. Some patients love that their veneers are permanent, however some would prefer to have a removable option.
Veneers can be damaged. They are made of porcelain. This is an aesthetically pleasing option but it also means that veneers are susceptible to damage. Patients should also be aware that after having veneers placed their teeth may be sensitive to hot and cold for a few days.
Can you eat with porcelain veneers?
Veneers are permanent, so patients must eat with them in. This can pose some issues for patients, because once veneers are placed their diet may need to change. Dentists say that you can eat any food with veneers, but it is a good idea to stay away from hard or chewy foods after first having them placed. Patients should also avoid biting and chewing especially hard with them.
Do veneers make your breath smell?
Many patients associate porcelain veneers with foul breath. This can occur, however this is only if the veneers are fitted incorrectly. When veneers are placed there can be small gaps around the corners and ledges that may allow for food and plaque to build up. This accumulation can be the cause of bad breath.
