What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are strong thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They may be an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their natural look, beauty, simplicity and versatility. Why put up with gaps between your teeth or teeth that are stained, badly shaped, or crooked. Veneers placed on of your teeth can often correct these maladies, simply and quickly. Veneers can instantly give you a beautiful smile! For actual beautiful “smile makeovers” done at our office, visit “Showcase.”
Veneers are also sometimes called “instant orthodontics” since the crooked teeth can in many cases be made straight immediately at the initial prepping (tooth contouring) visit when the temporary veneers are initially placed. A ceramic specialty dental lab then creates the veneers. The beautiful real veneers are then bonded to the teeth about 2 weeks later. From start to finish the process can take as little as two to three weeks!
Porcelain veneers can transform more than just your smile! Ask for your complimentary consultation today.
Will They Look Like Normal Teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are completely natural looking and can be as white as you would like them. They are highly resistant to coffee, tea, wine, or even cigarette stains. However, the skill and training of the dentist and the dental ceramic laboratory are very important to the naturalness and beauty of the creation of your new smile. We pride ourselves in providing a beautiful, esthetically pleasing, dazzling new smile for our patients.
How Durable Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can have a service life of ten to twenty plus years. Their longevity is dependent upon the severity of grinding and clenching, the quality workmanship of the dentist and the dental laboratory fabricating the veneers, and the proper care given to them. At Westlake Hills Dental Arts most of our veneers are crafted by Microdental Laboratory, one of the world’s premier ceramic dental labs located in California. At Microdental Laboratory (see macveneers.com) your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and by the best ceramic artists.
