Porcelain dental veneers are coverings that Dr. Ledakis or Dr. Baez place over your teeth to give them a more even and natural look. These coverings also help reduce your risk of having your teeth damaged. Since these porcelain veneers are custom-made based on your natural teeth, they offer a comfortable fit and closely match the coloring of your surrounding teeth.
Porcelain veneers offer several benefits, including the following:
Dr. Ledakis or Dr. Baez will evaluate your teeth to see if dental veneers are the best option for you. In some cases, they might recommend another type of treatment to cover flaws, such as whitening for discolored teeth. Porcelain veneers are suitable if you have one or more of these cosmetic problems:
Dr. Ledakis or Dr. Baez needs to prepare your affected teeth for porcelain veneers before these coverings can go on them. This involves having small amounts of enamel removed to help ensure that your veneers will have a proper fit. Once this is done, Dr. Ledakis or Dr. Baez will make an impression of your teeth to have permanent veneers made. You’ll have temporary veneers put over your affected teeth in the meantime. When your permanent veneers are ready, they’ll go on your teeth with cement to hold them in place.
Your porcelain veneers should stay in good condition for many years as long as you take care of them. They don’t need any special care, but you should make sure that you’re brushing them on a regular basis. Although the life span of veneers varies from patient to patient, porcelain veneers can last for up to 20 years. Just keep in mind that they can loosen or become damaged over time or with improper care.
