Do you have gaps between your teeth? Are chips and cracks in your tooth enamel affecting the look of your teeth? Call Perfect Smiles for treatment with porcelain veneers in Doylestown, PA.
Porcelain veneers are effective cosmetic dentistry solutions for patients with tooth wear, chips and cracks in the enamel, tooth discoloration, and small gaps between teeth. They offer a permanent way for patients to address cosmetic dental problems. Because dental veneers are made of porcelain ceramic, they easily blend in with patients’ natural smiles. Veneers reflect light just like natural teeth and are custom-fabricated to create uniform and bright teeth.
Treatment with Porcelain Veneers
To begin treatment with veneers, we prepare the teeth by removing a small portion of the tooth enamel. This ensures that the porcelain veneers conform to the teeth. Then, we take digital impressions of the teeth and send them to a dental lab. Lab technicians will craft the veneers using your impressions. Once the veneers are complete, we apply a liquid conditioner to the teeth to ensure that the veneers bond easily. We will check the shape, shade, and position of the dental veneers. Finally, we will use dental bonding material and a curing light to bond the veneers to the tooth’s surface.
To care for your veneers, directly following your treatment, please stay away from tobacco products and foods and beverages that stain. Eat soft foods for several days and avoid hard or chewy foods. When brushing, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste.
Porcelain Veneer FAQs
Do you want to know more about veneers? Read answers to these common questions below:
How do I know if porcelain veneers are right for me?
Good candidates for porcelain veneers have healthy tooth enamel with no outstanding oral health problems. However, if you do have TMJ problems, gum disease, or decay, we can help. We will ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy before we recommend treatment with porcelain veneers.
Do dental veneers damage natural teeth?
No, porcelain veneers do not damage the natural enamel. Although we need to prepare natural teeth for veneers, we do not cause permanent damage to the teeth. When porcelain veneer treatment is overseen by a dental professional, patients do not need to worry about further damage to their tooth enamel.
How long do dental veneers last?
Because dental veneers are a permanent solution, they are the best for patients who are committed to veneers as a cosmetic treatment. Over time, patients may need to replace veneers that have become discolored over time, but the veneers themselves can last from 15 to 30 years. To ensure long-lasting results, brush and floss regularly and visit our office at least twice a year for routine care.
