What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, transparent ceramic shells that are directly bonded to your teeth for a flawless finish. Your veneers are custom-created to improve the shape, color, and length of your natural teeth. This cosmetic dental treatment will seamlessly blend in with your surrounding smile, allowing you to smile with confidence once again.
We often recommend porcelain veneers for patients looking to fix any of the following dental issues:
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are very well known for brightening your smile, but they also offer a wide variety of other benefits, including:
- Completed in as little as two appointments
- A fast, painless procedure
- Customized for you
- No harsh changes to your natural teeth
- Can last as long as 15 years
- Easy to care for
Our Porcelain Veneers Process
The porcelain process can be completed in as little as two appointments to our Willoughby Hills dental office. The first step in achieving your smile goals starts with an initial consultation with Dr. Wallace, where we’ll assess your mouth for any underlying dental problems. After any issues have been resolved, we’ll take highly detailed impressions of your mouth to ensure perfectly crafted veneers for your smile.
When your porcelain veneers are ready, you’ll return to our dental office so we can place them. During this appointment, your dentist will gently remove a minuscule amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. Then, your veneers will be bonded to your teeth with a dental resin that hardens with the use of a special light.
Once applied, your dentist will double-check that your veneers fit and look perfectly before solidifying the bond. Then, you’ll walk out of our office ready to show the world your new, vibrant smile with nothing but confidence.
