Porcelain veneers help bring a smile together by eliminating the appearance of chips, cracks, stains, or unevenness. Patients can have veneers placed on one or several teeth, depending on the particular look that they are trying to achieve.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin, ceramic casings that improve the appearance of damaged teeth. These ceramic shells can be used to conceal chips, cracks, discoloration, gaps between teeth, and other minor aesthetic flaws. Treatment begins with a consultation in which Dr. Gorrell will identify the damaged areas and help you to decide whether porcelain veneers are the best option in your case. If you decide to proceed with treatment, Dr. Gorrell will shape the damaged tooth and make an impression of it so that a porcelain veneer can be created and placed. At a follow-up appointment, Dr. Gorrell will ensure that the veneer complements the color, shape, size, and texture of the surrounding natural teeth before finally bonding it to the tooth. When bonded to the teeth, veneers are undetectable, creating a flawless yet natural-looking smile.
Why Choose Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers help bring a smile together by eliminating the appearance of chips, cracks, stains, or unevenness. Patients can have veneers placed on one or several teeth, depending on the particular look that they are trying to achieve. These ceramic shells are custom made to fit naturally with the rest of the teeth. In addition, Dr. Gorrell can alter the color of the veneers, making them virtually unnoticeable to others. Patients who have veneers do not have to make any lifestyle changes, and can enjoy the same foods and beverages as they always have. Finally, veneers are a long-term solution to many cosmetic issues. When cared for properly, porcelain veneers can last as long as 10 years.
