Before diving into the world of cosmetic dentistry, it’s likely that you’ll have more than a few questions. Any specific treatment comes with special concerns, and porcelain veneers are no different. Educate yourself as to all the potential that comes along with veneers in order to make the right decision when choosing the course of your smile makeover. This post offers up a few of the most commonly asked questions about porcelain veneers, with answers for patients considering aesthetic dental improvements.
Things to Consider Before Getting Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain is an ideal material for dental restorations because it is aesthetically superior to its counterparts. Porcelain reflects some light and allows some to pass through its surface, so it mimics natural enamel closely. Its texture is also indistinguishable from that of enamel.
Is the procedure painful?
This depends on whether or not you need tooth reduction in order for your veneers to fit. Porcelain veneers are very thin, and can sometimes fit over natural teeth as they are. If your teeth need preparation, then Dr. Baudean will numb the site with local anesthetic. You will not feel the tooth prep.
Will I need to wear a temporary?
If you require tooth prep, then we will bond a temporary to the tooth so that you needn’t spend any time with your smile looking less than whole.
What problems can veneers fix?
Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile. They may be used to correct
- Stained teeth
- Short teeth
- Weak or sensitive teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
Full sets of veneers on the upper and lower teeth will create an entirely new smile – one which you’ll be able to carefully tailor, and will love.
Will my veneers blend with my natural teeth?
Because porcelain is aesthetically ideal, veneers look just like natural tooth surfaces. They won’t stand out in your smile; they’ll simply make it more beautiful.
