Porcelain Veneers in Greenwood
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. Veneers are used to improve the appearance of chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven, or abnormally spaced teeth. Veneers are custom-made to fit over each of your individual teeth, for an end-result that looks natural and flawless.
Who gets porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are an ideal choice for someone who wants to improve their smile without replacing their natural teeth. Veneers have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity, application, and remarkable “make-over” results.
Can thin porcelain really look like normal teeth?
Once bonded to your natural tooth, porcelain veneers are ultimately undetectable. They’re ultra thin and mimic the look of tooth enamel.
Can veneers stain?
All surfaces can stain, but with the proper treatment, not all of them will. Porcelain veneers are resistant to coffee, tea, and even nicotine. Good dental hygiene that is done consistently will also preserve the bright smile that veneers provide.
How do veneers stack up against other restorative options?
When it comes to strength and appearance, porcelain veneers resemble healthy, white tooth enamel more than any other restorative dentistry option.
Are porcelain veneers durable?
As long as you take proper care of them, porcelain veneers can keep your smile healthy and bright for at least a decade. Our dentists will make sure they are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and apply them with delicate precision so they last as long as possible. However, even the best of circumstances can’t always prevent a chip and when that happens we can repair your porcelain veneer so it will be as good as new.
Does Greenwood Dental Smiles have a lot of experience with veneers?
Yes. The entire team at Greenwood Dental Smiles places veneers routinely and has the skills necessary to apply them for longevity. Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail.
Will my veneers fit my mouth?
Yes! We make sure that the veneers will blend in with your other teeth. We design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each person’s smile.
Should I worry about my veneers falling off?
Our office only uses the most advanced and proven materials available to bond the porcelain to your tooth. If you’re careful, your veneers should remain in tact for many years.
How can I be careful with my veneers?
We recommend that you avoid using your veneers as tools to open or tear anything—that’s how they break. If there’s an accident, breakage, or damage does occur, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
