The Procedure: A Quick Break-Down
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells, roughly the thickness of an eggshell, custom-fabricated to fit your mouth and blend seamlessly with existing teeth. During a consultation with Dr. Danny O'Keefe, you can learn more about whether you are a suitable candidate for veneers. Ideal candidates need to be in good health with no decay or disease in the mouth. You may learn you are better suited to dental crowns, for example, if your teeth are compromised in any way.
During an initial visit, the surface of your teeth will be buffed to accommodate for the thickness of the veneer. An impression of your teeth will be made and sent to a dental laboratory. After the custom-fitted veneers are received, they will be placed during a second visit, usually one to three weeks after your first visit. In-office, the veneers will be further shaped for precise fitting, your teeth will be etched to strengthen the bonding process, and a specialized dental cement will be used to attach the veneers to your teeth.
Depending on your unique dental needs, and desired aesthetic outcome, we are also able to offer same-day veneers using our in-office milling machine, CEREC®.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are arguably the most effective cosmetic procedure to achieve a dazzling smile. When you think of a typical celebrity smile, it most likely encompasses the traits you can attain through the use of veneers.
Porcelain veneers are able to:
- Conceal chips and cracks
- Close gaps between teeth
- Lengthen or shorten teeth
- Brighten teeth and conceal stubborn discoloration
- Enhance the overall symmetry of your smile by correcting misalignment or irregularly shaped teeth
Once bonded, porcelain veneers should be cared for in the same way as natural teeth. Veneers not only offer cosmetic benefits, but also work to protect teeth against future wear and tear. With proper oral hygiene and a strict adherence to regularly scheduled cleanings, porcelain veneers can last for many years.
