This post focuses on an effective and versatile cosmetic dental procedure available from Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH, porcelain veneers.
Veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth. They are an exceptional way to fix a myriad of tooth imperfections such as chips, stains, yellowing, unattractive shape or minimal misalignment.
Have you ever yearned a minimally-invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your answer! Strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.
How many veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to improve, and their overall condition. The thickness, enamel color, alignment, and shape of your teeth impact the final product as well as whether you have any gum recession.
Porcelain veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you definitely want to have them created in the same “batch” at the lab.
The first step in the veneer process is to make a model of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician will use the model to construct the veneers to the precise size, shape, color, and degree of translucency. Experienced cosmetic dentists and dental technicians elevate the level of artistry. It’s a painstaking process.
Many patients wonder if veneers are as durable as their natural teeth. Though the veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth slightly, with proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years.
Porcelain veneers are more durable than dental bonding, which is sometimes used to correct the same varieties of imperfections. Dental bonding generally has a shorter life span than veneers, so keep this in mind when comparing the procedures.
