Veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic (porcelain) material that your dentist bonds to the front of your teeth. This cosmetic dentistry treatment requires little or no anesthesia and can be the ideal solution for resolving many of your smile imperfections.
Porcelain veneers look and feel just like your natural teeth and can correct any of the following issues:
- Small or misshapen teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Chips and minor tooth cracks
- Gaps between teeth
Since your porcelain veneers are customized to meet your needs, your dentist can correct as little as one or two problem teeth, all the way up to a complete front arch.
What can I expect during my porcelain veneers treatment plan?
While meeting with your dedicated dentist at iSmile Dental, you learn about the process of getting veneers and what you can expect throughout your treatment. Your dentist evaluates your oral health history and helps you decide if veneers are right for you.
During your first official porcelain veneers session, your dentist prepares your teeth one at a time. They need to remove a minuscule amount of tooth enamel with the dental drill, a process that causes little-to-no discomfort.
Once your targeted teeth are prepared, your dentist uses iTero® 3D scanning technology to get detailed digital impressions of your teeth for porcelain veneers fabrication.
To consistently achieve beautiful and natural-looking porcelain veneers, iSmile Dental partners with a state-of-the-art ceramics lab. This way, your dentist has oversight as your veneers are being created to ensure your veneers can help create a beautiful and harmonious smile.
After your veneers are ready — it can take about two or three weeks — you come back to iSmile Dental to have your new porcelain veneers fitted and bonded onto each tooth. Aside from following your typical oral health routine, and coming in for twice-a-year exams and cleanings, no further treatment is necessary.
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
iSmile Dental uses only the highest quality materials that are very durable and designed to withstand years of wear-and-tear. With ongoing preventive dental care, you can expect your porcelain dental veneers to last about 10-15 years.
