There are many benefits and advantages to having porcelain veneers applied to your front teeth. These may include any or all of the following considerations:
- Only a small amount of natural tooth structure (if any) is removed during the procedure.
- A healthy, natural look is achieved with little or no discomfort.
- Veneers are strong, durable and color-stable.
Similar to a resin bonding procedure, veneers are attached directly to the existing tooth structure. We take an impression of your tooth to make an exact replica. During your appointment, we treat your tooth with a mild conditioning solution. Before the veneer is placed, we apply a tooth-colored liquid bonding material, which helps the veneer adhere to your natural tooth.
Veneers can last for years, depending on how well you take care of them. Because veneers are stronger than simple bonding, they are also more resistant to stains and chipping. However, it is important to maintain regular oral hygiene, to avoid bad habits such as biting nails or chewing ice and to visit us regularly for routine cleanings and exams. These precautions will help ensure that your veneers will last a long time and keep looking as good as new.
