What to Expect
Porcelain veneers are a type of cosmetic dental prosthesis. They are made of a thin, ceramic material and are designed to fit over your existing teeth after they have been trimmed. Essentially, your veneers will completely replace the front surfaces of your teeth to hide cosmetic issues.
The treatment process takes two appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks. First, you’ll come in to have your teeth prepared. Dr. Mestichelli or Dr. Barnes will trim them and take images and impressions of your teeth, which will then be sent to a trusted third-party lab.
Your veneers will be created at this dental lab, then sent to our office. In the meantime, you’ll wear temporary veneers to protect your teeth. At your last appointment, we will check each permanent veneer to make sure they fit properly, then bond them into place permanently to complete the procedure.
Are Veneers Right for Me?
Common Reasons for Treatment
Veneers can be used to treat a wide variety of cosmetic dental issues. This includes uneven or misshapen teeth, gaps in your smile, slightly-crooked teeth, discoloration and stains, and teeth with minor chipping.
If you have extensive cosmetic dental issues, veneers are often the best option for restoring your smile because they are so versatile. However, it’s important to note that veneers are not a restorative treatment and should not be used to treat decayed teeth. They may also not be a good option for patients with extremely crooked teeth or major bite issues.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Veneers look and feel completely natural. The material used to build your veneers will feel just like your natural enamel and will look completely natural to others.
They offer fast results. In just 2 quick appointments over a period of a few weeks, you can completely restore your smile and treat almost any cosmetic problem with your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and very durable, with an expected lifespan of 15+ years. They are also very easy to maintain. All you have to do is treat them like normal teeth. Brush twice a day for 2 minutes, floss once per day, and see your trusted South Philadelphia dentists every six months for a checkup.
