Have your discolored, misaligned, gapped or chipped teeth got you feeling down? If so, porcelain teeth veneers might be the solution to your problems. Porcelain veneers are used to restore the appearance of healthy teeth in need of cosmetic fixes. One of our experienced dentists in Dalton can assist you in determining whether or not veneers are the right choice to fix your issues.
A porcelain veneer is comprised of thin layers of dental porcelain that are attached to one or more teeth. They mimic the enamel of the tooth and are typically used for issues like:
After you have had a thorough examination, our dentist in Dalton will speak with you about what kind of veneers are right for you.
You may be wondering, “What will porcelain veneers cost?” Your dental insurance, the type of veneers selected, and the overall condition of your oral health will determine your cost.
Porcelain veneers are typically recommended in instances where a permanent cosmetic fix is needed. Veneers adhere to the front surface of the tooth, which does not make them a good option for people who have structural issues with one or more teeth.
Porcelain crowns are placed when a person has suffered extensive damage to the tooth via decay, injury or age. They are placed over the entire tooth and are often referred to as caps.
Before you can have your porcelain veneers procedure done, your dentist will need to remove a thin layer of enamel from your tooth. After this, an impression of your teeth will be made so that your veneers will fit comfortably and securely on your teeth.
After your veneers are placed, you will be able to take care of them in the same way you take care of your regular teeth. Regularly brushing and flossing your teeth will keep your veneers in good shape for years to come. You may wish to avoid or to be extra careful when eating hard candies and other similar foods.
When properly taken care of, porcelain veneers will last for decades.
LumineersⓇ are a specific brand of veneers that are thinner and more translucent than other brands. Despite the extra thin material used to make the veneers, they are incredibly durable and can last for more than 20 years.
