Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry procedure used to cover up a wide range of dental issues at our office here in Carmichael. Stained, crooked, gapped, chipped, or unevenly shaped teeth can all be covered by a dental veneer, which is a thin shell of porcelain that is adhered to the front of the tooth. The process is quick and easy, and most veneers can last for anywhere between 7 and 15 years.
The Porcelain Veneers Process
In order to have porcelain veneers applied, your cosmetic dentist will first remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of your tooth. This process generally only removes about a millimeter of enamel. At this time, the dentist will also inform the lab that makes the veneers what size, shape, and color your porcelain veneers should be. Some patients want their veneers to match their surrounding teeth, while others want a new smile.
At the second appointment, the dental veneers will be applied, and you will be all good to go! Customized veneers will give you an instant smile. Caring for veneers is easy. Simply keep up your normal good hygiene routine, and continue to see your dentist on a regular basis for regular cleanings.
Patients Love Porcelain Veneers
Many of our patients love veneers because they can avoid lengthier and more expensive procedures. Veneers are a great way to enhance your smile before a big event, but be aware that this process cannot be reversed due to the removal of the enamel.
