If you are ready for a smile makeover, consider getting porcelain veneers to achieve a beautiful smile! Placing veneers over misshapen, discolored, or crooked teeth can help to create an even smile without surgery or braces. They can be an attractive alternative to teeth whitening treatments because they brighten your smile and maintain their color for years.
What Are Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells designed to cover up the surface of the teeth. Your teeth may need to be etched or prepared for the veneers placement to ensure optimal results. The custom made shell is bonded to the front of the tooth and can change your tooth’s appearance, color, and length. Veneers are made with special materials that are resistant to stains and reflect light just like your natural teeth. They can last up to ten years with proper care, and are an attractive alternative to teeth whitening treatments in some cases.
How Veneers are Placed
Porcelain veneers are typically placed in two visits and require very minimal preparation of the teeth. Dr. Macaulay may need to remove some tooth enamel to prepare your teeth, and will take an impression of your teeth to make the custom veneers. You will wear a set of temporary veneers while the new ones are being made, and the veneers will then be bonded to your teeth permanently.
