What Is the Procedure Like?
During your initial consultation, you and Dr. Yanez will discuss your aesthetic concerns and how porcelain veneers may benefit you. If this treatment is ideal for your needs, Dr. Yanez will design a custom-tailored treatment plan. To prepare the tooth for the porcelain veneer, a very thin layer of the tooth’s outer enamel may need to be removed; however, advances in cosmetic dentistry over the years have made it possible for very little of the original tooth structure to be removed or reshaped in these procedures. After taking a mold of your teeth, the impressions are sent to a lab where your veneers will be milled and ultimately matched to the shade of your natural teeth for a comfortable, natural, and precise fit. This procedure is typically completed in as little as two office visits.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
The materials used to create porcelain veneers are strong and durable. They can be cared for just like normal teeth. You should maintain your daily dental routine, including brushing and flossing, and also visit the dentist for twice-yearly exams. When cared for properly, porcelain veneers can last for decades and provide you with a brighter and more youthful smile.
