These tiny ceramic sheets allow us to change the shape, color, and size of your teeth, instantly revamping the look of your teeth.
What are porcelain veneers?
As one of the most popular cosmetic dental services out there, porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that are adhered to the front surfaces of your teeth. As a result, they can address and conceal many kinds of imperfections, including:
- Discoloration in the teeth that doesn’t respond to whitening.
- Slightly misaligned teeth.
- Misshapen or small teeth.
- Gaps between teeth.
- Chipped teeth
- Worn-down teeth.
We offer two types of veneers: traditional porcelain and no-prep. The traditional porcelain veneers are a tried-and-true cosmetic solution that successfully gets patients their perfect smiles. As the name suggests, no-prep veneers do not require Dr. Gaylor to prepare the tooth in advance for the veneer. This innovative technique provides all the same benefits of traditional veneers without the need to remove a small part of the enamel.
What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?
There are reasons why patients keep turning to our practice for porcelain veneers to refresh their smiles, including the following:
- Natural appearance. The material reflects light much like tooth enamel, so the results look amazing.
- Versatility. Porcelain veneers can address many kinds of flaws when other cosmetic treatments can’t.
- Easy maintenance. These do not require any special care. Just care of them like you would your natural teeth with daily brush and flossing and semiannual visits to the dentist.
- Durability. Extremely strong, the ceramic material can certainly withstand normal wear and tear.
- Stain resistance. Porcelain veneer can resist stain even better than tooth enamel.
- Safe for gums. They are biocompatible, so your gums shouldn’t react to the material.
What is the process for placing porcelain veneers?
Placing porcelain veneers is pretty straightforward. After you and Dr. Gaylor decide that they are the right cosmetic solution for you, the process will go something like this:
- Gaylor will remove a small portion of your teeth’s enamel to make room for the veneer, unless you are getting the no-prep type.
- We will take impressions and precise measurements of your teeth and send this information to a dental lab. For traditional veneers, Dr. Gaylor will place temporary ones while you wait for your custom-made veneers are being created.
- After a few weeks, when the final products are finished, you will return to our office to get your porcelain veneers permanently bonded to your teeth. Then you’re done!
In as little as two dental appointments, you could have the smile you’ve always dreamed of!
