What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth. Their strength and appearance make them a favored choice for those seeking to make slight position alterations or to change tooth shape, size, and color.

The Process of Getting Veneers

First, an overview. There are usually three stages to the process: diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding. It’s a process that may span over a few weeks. Let’s take a closer look.

  • Diagnosis and treatment planning: This is your chance to take an active role in the design of your smile. Dr. Schraner will guide you through the process and make sure your goals are met.
  • Preparation: A small amount of your natural tooth will be removed to make space for the veneer. Don’t worry; this is a painless process.
  • Bonding: Your veneer will be placed on your tooth to check its fit and color. Once everything is perfect, a special light is used to activate chemicals in the cement, causing it to harden quickly.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Why choose porcelain veneers? They offer several advantages. They provide a natural tooth appearance and are stain-resistant. Porcelain veneers also offer a stronger, more aesthetic alternative to crowns. And the cherry on top? They are tolerated excellently by your gums.

Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers

Caring for your porcelain veneers is simple. Treat them as you would your original teeth, with routine brushing and flossing. With proper care, they can last for years.
