Porcelain Veneers, also known as dental veneers, are thin porcelain shells that are designed to fit over the surface of your teeth to create a more beautiful smile. At The Art of Dentistry, your porcelain veneers are custom-made to match the shade and shape of the adjacent teeth for natural looking, long lasting results.
What Are The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
This popular cosmetic dentistry technique can be used to correct the appearance of a number of tooth imperfections, including:
- Cracks and chips
- Stains or discoloration
- Mild tooth misalignment
- Uneven or worn teeth
With porcelain veneers, Dr. Rutherford can improve the shape, length, and color of your teeth in just two visits.
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
During the consultation process, Dr. Rutherford will perform an oral examination, review your dental history, and help you decide if porcelain veneers are the best option to meet your unique needs and expectations. Once you are determined a good candidate for porcelain veneers, Dr. Rutherford will send a mold of your teeth to the dental lab where your custom-designed veneers can be made. The porcelain veneers procedure is considered a conservative treatment and typically requires very little alteration of the natural tooth structure during tooth preparation. Once your personalized veneers return from the lab, Dr. Rutherford can bond each veneer to the corresponding tooth for a durable, beautiful smile.
Porcelain Veneers Recovery & Results
After your porcelain veneers procedure, you may experience some mild tooth sensitivity; however, your teeth should return to normal within two weeks. Though porcelain veneers are made of a durable material, patients who are prone to grinding or clenching their teeth may want to protect their veneers with a night guard. With proper hygiene and routine oral exams, your porcelain veneers can keep your smile looking beautiful for years/
