What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are built out of durable, strong porcelain. They are extremely thin, and designed to fit over your existing teeth, replacing the exterior chewing surface. This means that they can be used to cover up minor damage to your teeth, as well as stains, gaps, and other cosmetic problems.
It’s important to note that porcelain veneers are not a restorative treatment. In most cases, seriously damaged or decayed teeth will have to be restored with another treatment like a dental crown. Veneers are only recommended for patients who have healthy mouths.
How Are Porcelain Veneers Applied?
The application process for porcelain veneers usually takes about two appointments after your initial consultation with Dr. James Chung. It’s fast, non-invasive, and requires no oral surgery.
At your first appointment, Dr. Chung will begin by removing a very thin layer of enamel from the teeth are in need of veneers. This enamel layer is equal in thickness to the porcelain veneer and it is removed to ensure that the veneers will have a completely seamless, natural fit.
After this, Dr. Chung will take images and molds of your mouth, and send them to an outside lab where your veneers will be manufactured. Special care is taken to ensure that your veneers match your existing teeth, and are built to look totally natural. The process of building veneers usually takes about 2-3 weeks, so you’ll get a set of temporary veneers that you will wear until your next appointment.
At your last appointment, Dr. Chung will check the fit, finish, and style of your veneers to ensure that everything is in order. Then, your veneers are applied with an advanced dental adhesive. You’ll leave our office with a new, improved smile!
What Are The Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are one of the best ways to restore your smile. Here are a few reasons this is such a popular cosmetic option:
Natural look and feel – Veneers are indistinguishable from your natural teeth. They will look, feel, and function completely naturally.
No special oral care precautions required – All you have to do is brush and floss normally, and avoid chewing hard, non-food objects.
Completely non-invasive – Veneer application is safe and non-invasive. Veneers are perfect for people who may be nervous about dental surgery, or who suffer from dental anxiety.
