Have you sustained tooth damage from a physical injury? Do you want to cover your tooth stains or crooked teeth? Receive cosmetic dental care with porcelain veneers in Broomall, PA. Veneers are thin, translucent ceramic shells. In our office, our dentists permanently bond veneers to the front of the teeth.
Porcelain veneers are highly stain-resistant and reflect the light just like natural teeth. They are one of the best options for patients who have dental damage, tooth discoloration, and even gaps between their teeth.
At Williamsburg Dental, our dentists work with patients to discover the best cosmetic solutions to fit their oral health goals and current dental needs. Veneers are one of the longest-lasting cosmetic treatments for patients to address imperfections in the smile.
Treatment with Porcelain Veneers
Before treatment, we make sure that patients are in good oral and physical health. Patients can receive their porcelain veneers over two to three visits.
First, we prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of the surface tooth structure. Preparing the teeth in this way ensures that the veneers do not feel bulky or uncomfortable in the mouth. Then, we take dental impressions of the teeth and place temporary veneers. In a dental lab, technicians use dental impressions to make custom veneers.
Once the permanent veneers are complete, we use a resin material to bond the veneers to the prepared teeth. We always make sure that the veneers are the correct color and shape before we permanently attach them. Finally, we clean and polish the veneers for a natural appearance.
Porcelain Veneers Q&A
Learn more about veneers with answers to these frequently asked questions:
How long do dental veneers last?
With the right care, porcelain veneers can last for decades. After you receive your permanent veneers, refrain from smoking or using tobacco products. Additionally, to keep the veneers bright, avoid tea, coffee, wine, berries, and other highly staining foods or beverages. Gently brush and floss your veneers to prevent bacteria buildup. You can still be affected by decay and gum disease even if your natural teeth are covered.
What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?
Veneers can change the shape and color of natural teeth. They are placed onto the front of the tooth and can completely cover the front and sides of each tooth. We can use veneers to address misshapen teeth, cover deep tooth stains, and even improve minor alignment problems in the smile.
Porcelain veneers look natural. We create our veneers with strong porcelain, a translucent material that reflects light similarly to natural tooth enamel. Our dentists can even color-match veneers to ensure that they blend with your smile.
Can I whiten my veneers?
No, you cannot whiten your dental veneers. Veneers may be used to brighten the smile, but they do not react to whitening agents. However, if you have old, dull veneers, we can provide you with a replacement.
