Have you been hoping for a way to transform your entire smile? For patients suffering from aesthetic imperfections, we often suggest porcelain veneers for a smile makeover. While some patients choose veneers to treat a single concern – such as discolored teeth – this treatment addresses a wide variety of issues within only two visits. So before you give up hope that there is a treatment ready to cover all of your cosmetic needs, consider the ins-and-outs of veneers. We have answered some of the questions we hear most often from patients, so you can gain a better understanding of all that this service provides:
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Question: Do veneers do more than whiten my teeth?
Answer: Yes. This treatment addresses a wide array of aesthetic concerns, including teeth whitening, camouflaging minor chips and cracks, filling spaces between teeth, and improving tooth shape and size.
Question: Can I select veneers if I have dental prosthetics?
Answer: Veneers only work on natural teeth. If the portion of your smile that you wish to improve is composed of your natural teeth, you make an excellent candidate. To improve the appearance of dental prosthetics, we will discuss alternative solutions with you.
Question: Will porcelain veneers last very long? I hear that they are delicate.
Answer: Just like your teeth, the better care you provide them, the longer they tend to last. Fortunately, this treatment is known not only for its visual brilliance but also for its durability and ability to resist stains.
Question: Will I need special instruments to care for my veneers?
Answer: No. You will continue brushing and flossing like you do for your natural teeth. However, we steer patients away from agents that may scratch their veneers like we do with their natural smiles. Remember to choose non-abrasive toothpastes, and you should be in good shape.
