Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
If you think you might be a candidate for porcelain dental veneers, your first step is to request a consultation with our cosmetic dentist. During your consultation, we’ll be able to determine whether you’d benefit most from dental veneers or another treatment option.
We may recommend the veneers procedure if your teeth are healthy but have minor imperfections. Veneers are often used to restore teeth that are mishappen, stained, gapped, or chipped.
are wafer-thin porcelain shells we’re able to bond to the fronts of your teeth. For this reason, we’ll need to remove a thin layer of enamel to make room. Once we do this, our dentist will take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab where your veneers will be made. We’ll also place temporary covers over your teeth. When you return for your second appointment, we’ll be able to remove the temporary veneers and replace them with your permanent porcelain veneers.
How to Care for Veneers
Take care of your veneers like you do the rest of your smile. The American Dental Association recommends you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time. Dr. Bandos also recommends that you floss once daily to remove plaque hiding between teeth. Dental veneers can last years with proper care.
