Porcelain veneers have the ability to give your smile a dramatic makeover, whether it’s correcting a single chipped tooth or all of the teeth that are visible when you smile. Dr. Bacopoulou is known for her artistry and technical skill when it comes to designing porcelain veneers for her patients, which means you’ll have a beautiful smile that looks completely natural.
Dental veneers are a versatile solution that can be used to correct a number of aesthetic issues, including:
- Closing gaps between two teeth
- Straightening teeth with slight misalignments
- Correcting teeth that are uneven in length or size
- Whitening a badly stained or discolored tooth
- Restoring a tooth that is cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged
- Covering over a tooth that is malformed
The Dental Veneer Process
Porcelain veneers are designed just for you, which is how we ensure harmony and balance with your facial features. Then, they are fabricated in a dental laboratory by layering thin sheets of porcelain to mimic the natural structure and appearance of teeth. With well-made dental veneers, you’ll look like an improved version of yourself, without drawing attention to your cosmetic dentistry work.
After your veneers have been fabricated, you’ll return to our office to have them placed. A small amount of enamel is removed from your teeth to accommodate the veneers, then each veneer is bonded in place. Veneers are made in such a way that they wrap around the sides and bottoms of your teeth to give them a natural appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers
Do veneers ruin your teeth?
No, dental veneers don’t ruin your teeth because only a thin layer of enamel is removed—the rest of your tooth structure remains intact and healthy. That said, once the enamel is removed, it means you will always need to have dental veneers. You can’t have your veneers removed without replacing them with another set of veneers, because you won’t have sufficient enamel to protect your teeth.
Are veneers permanent?
Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent treatment because they can last for decades with proper care and maintenance.
Do you have to brush veneers?
While your veneers can’t get cavities, you still need to brush and floss because the teeth underneath them can suffer decay.
Can veneers be done in one day?
There are some types of veneers that can be done in a single day, but we don’t recommend them because they’re not custom made. When your veneers aren’t made specifically for your smile, they have a tendency to look unnatural.
How many teeth can you get veneers on?
You can get veneers on as many teeth as you’d like, but most patients opt to only place veneers on teeth that show when they smile.
