What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin ceramic coverings that are bonded to the teeth, and they can be used to improve the appearance of the smile in every possible way.
What Is the Procedure Like?
When you come in for porcelain veneers, the process will start with a consultation with Dr. Burdusi or Dr. Fiastro. During this, you’ll get a chance to discuss what you would like to accomplish, and we encourage you to even bring pictures of the kind of smile you want. After determining that you are a good candidate for veneers, your dentist will start the procedure by gently removing a small part of your teeth’s enamel. This will help create room in your smile so your veneers can lay flat. After this, they’ll take an impression of your smile and send it to a dental lab.
You’ll then return for a second visit where the veneers will be bonded to your teeth and any final adjustments can be made. After that, you’re finished! With the proper maintenance (consisting of brushing, flossing, and regular checkups), your veneers should look great for at least 10 years or more.
