We don’t just do dentures at Marshall Denture Clinic -- keep reading to learn about transforming your smile with porcelain veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are wafer-thin coverings that are affixed to the surface of the teeth that show when you smile. Porcelain veneers can correct a number of cosmetic issues. Some of them include…
- Covering cracked or chipped teeth
- Hiding stains and severe discoloration
- Closing slight gaps or misalignments
- Improving misshapen teeth (e.g. pointy, stubby, or short teeth)
- And other aesthetic flaws
Because veneers are meant for making cosmetic improvements, a weak, worn, or decayed tooth would be better served by a dental crown. Dr. Parker can discuss your options and help you understand which is best for your smile.
The benefits of porcelain veneers are significant. First of all, they eliminate the need to undergo multiple, lengthy cosmetic treatments. You can have your smile transformed in just one procedure with dental veneers. And once the treatment is complete, you are able to smile more beautifully than ever before -- and the benefits of a dazzling, confident smile are endless.
The Procedure for Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are completed in two visits to Marshall Denture Clinic. In all, you can expect your treatment to last two to three weeks.
The first appointment is reserved for discussing your treatment plan and preparing your teeth to receive the veneers. It can help to bring in photos of smiles you admire to this appointment. Tooth preparation involves buffing a slight amount of enamel from the surface of each tooth that will receive a veneer. Enamel removal creates room for the new layer that will be applied on top. You leave this appointment with temporary veneers.
In between appointments, your new veneers are manufactured in a separate lab and sent back to our office. You will revisit Marshall Denture Clinic approximately two weeks later for their final placement. After your porcelain veneers have been securely bonded on, your new smile is revealed!
Protect your porcelain veneers and the teeth and gums surrounding them by continuing to brush for two minutes, twice a day. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste and brush gently. Floss daily and visit your dentist as recommended for continued oral and dental health.
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?
Most adult patients who are interested in transforming their smiles are suited for porcelain veneers. Before beginning treatment, you will undergo an initial checkup and hygiene visit to make sure your teeth are healthy and squeaky clean. If we find spots of decay or the signs of gum disease during this appointment, restorative care or periodontal therapy will be necessary before we can place your veneers.
