Porcelain veneers or laminates are thin shells of translucent porcelain that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to conceal various imperfections. Porcelain is extremely durable, and when applied by a specialist, provides such realistic-looking veneers that it’s hard to distinguish them from natural teeth.
Crowns fit over the top and cover the targeted tooth. This requires significant reshaping of the natural tooth to secure the crown in place. Porcelain veneers are thin overlays that bond to the front of a tooth. Fitting a veneer requires only minimal structural changes to the tooth being treated, making veneers a much more conservative option than porcelain crowns.
Porcelain veneers can be used to cover numerous imperfections, including:
Veneers can also cover worn areas in your teeth that may be caused by the aging process.
Getting a porcelain veneer starts with a consultation, during which you and your provider discuss your goals and expectations and how veneers work.
The next step is to prepare the targeted tooth or teeth for veneers. This involves removing a very minimal amount of tooth structure to make room for the veneer. Your Montclair Dental Spa specialist also makes an impression or mold of the tooth, from which the veneer is sized and created. You need another appointment for custom fitting and bonding the finished veneers to your teeth.
Porcelain veneers can last a decade or more with proper care that includes routine brushing, flossing, and dental exams. Your provider discusses care in detail before scheduling the procedure, but it’s generally recommended that you avoid eating very hard foods or cracking shells with the teeth that are outfitted veneers. Otherwise, veneers are considered a durable and long-lasting solution for cosmetic flaws in your teeth and can be easily replaced when they do wear out.
