Porcelain veneers have become one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures in recent years. They are ultra-thin shells made from porcelain that are cemented to the front surface of your teeth. They help fix broken or chipped teeth, cover gaps, and remove stains.
Although porcelain veneers are used for cosmetic purposes, they have several qualities that reduce the need for complex treatments.
Dr. Volki Felahy at Sunset Oak Dental in Rocklin, California, specializes in family dentistry and cosmetic and restorative procedures including veneers. Read on to learn more about porcelain veneers and their benefits.
A typical procedure for getting porcelain veneers will include three dental visits. The first one is a consultation, the second is to make the veneers, and the third is to apply them to your teeth.
In the first stage, Dr. Felahy will examine your oral condition to determine the state of your teeth before deciding on the extent of work you may require.
Next, Dr. Felahy will file away part of your tooth enamel to create enough space to cement the veneers. Our team will also take X-rays and impressions of your teeth which will then be sent to the laboratory in order to get the veneers made.
Lastly, Dr. Felahy will carefully apply the veneers onto your teeth on your next visit to give you a beautiful look.
Here are a few reasons why porcelain veneers are better than other alternatives on the market:
Porcelain veneers are the most durable veneers available. If you follow a proper oral care routine, it can last more than a decade.
Porcelain veneers are a great alternative for teeth whitening as they cover up any imperfections and make the teeth shiny and bright.
To determine whether you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers, Dr. Felahy will do a preliminary exam. During this checkup, he will assess whether you have any fillings, gum-related illnesses, or sensitive teeth before taking the process further.
