Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that completely covers the visible portions of your teeth using thin, porcelain “shells” that fit directly over your natural tooth tissue. They’re among the most versatile treatments available, as they can correct numerous issues at once. 

When an actor or model flashes a seemingly perfect smile,  it may be a beautiful set of custom dental veneers you’re admiring. Veneers were once available only to the wealthy and famous, but advancements in dental technology have made custom porcelain veneers more widely available. 

What kinds of issues can veneers correct?

Dental veneers are placed to completely cover the front area of the teeth most visible when you speak or smile. They can be shaped and shaded numerous ways to give a beautiful and natural-looking appearance. 

Some of the issues dental veneers can correct include:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Severe discoloration
  • Minor alignment issues
  • Irregularities in the shape and size of teeth
  • Worn down teeth

Because custom porcelain veneers may address several problems with the same treatment, they offer a great value for your investment, as compared to multiple separate treatments. 

What is the process for getting porcelain veneers?

If you and Dr. Donald decide that porcelain veneers are the right fit for your needs and goals, you’ll come in for the first stage of the process. 

Numbing medication first eliminates sensation in the treatment area, allowing you to rest and relax during your visit. 

Dr. Donald removes a small volume of your natural tooth tissue to make room for the veneers. A set of impressions are made to guide the fabrication of your new veneers. Temporary veneers are placed to protect your teeth until the permanent versions arrive. 

When your new veneers arrive, Dr. Donald checks them for appearance and fit. Minor adjustments can be made in the office to ensure your veneers are comfortable and smooth to the touch. 

The veneers are carefully adhered into place over your natural tooth tissue, completing the treatment. You’ll walk out with your new smile ready to share with the world.
