What Can Porcelain Veneers Do For Me?
Porcelain dental veneers offer a variety of aesthetic and functional benefits for your smile. Custom-designed to match the specific color and dimensions of your natural teeth, porcelain veneers are constructed to cover the affected areas of your tooth while providing improved function and natural-looking results. Additionally, veneers are long-lasting and require no further maintenance apart from regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups. This cosmetic dentistry technique can be used to conceal several common dental issues, such as:
- Size inconsistencies
Ultimately, porcelain veneers can mask common dental flaws to restore the proportions and shade of a youthful and healthy tooth structure. Furthermore, this minimally invasive cosmetic solution often allows patients with inconsistencies in tooth symmetry to achieve an even, uniform smile.
What is the Porcelain Veneers Treatment Like?
Once it has been determined that you are a good candidate for daVinci™ porcelain veneers, a digital impression of your teeth will be made in order to ensure the utmost precision for the design and construction of your veneer. Rather than creating an impression with messy pastes and adhesives, our advanced computer imaging system will map out an exact model of your teeth while you are relaxing comfortably in your chair. Our cosmetic dentist will then prepare the treated tooth by removing a very small portion of enamel to accommodate placement of the veneer.
Utilizing a durable porcelain material, your custom veneer will be thinly constructed to match the specific size and shape necessary for the most comfortable and natural fit over your tooth. Once your porcelain veneer is crafted and ready for bonding, it will be secured to your tooth using a strong cement and tinted to match the color of your surrounding teeth. Following a final polish, your veneer should look, function, and feel like a natural tooth.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Porcelain veneers typically produce long-lasting results, often spanning decades. Thanks to their durable porcelain composition, daVinci™ veneers can be very enduring with routine oral hygiene habits. No additional maintenance besides daily brushing and flossing, as well as routine dental check-ups and cleanings, is typically necessary to keep porcelain veneers in good condition. Taking care to avoid excessive clenching, grinding, or pressure on the teeth can also prevent unnecessary damage to the veneer and further prolong their usefulness.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
Given their ability to last years, porcelain veneers are often considered a long-term investment into your smile aesthetic. The price of treatment will be contingent upon a number of factors, such as the expertise of your cosmetic dentist and the geographic location where the procedure is performed. With this in mind, other details unique to your treatment plan will ultimately determine the cost of porcelain veneers, including:
- The number of veneers being placed
- The location of the treated teeth
- The type of veneers utilized
- The amount of tooth preparation necessary to accommodate the veneers
- Whether additional dental work was necessary to improve oral health prior to treatment
- The overall complexity of your treatment plan
