When it’s time to get yourself veneers, there are some things you really need to consider. After all, the goal is to create your ideal smile out of the procedure. It is important to have all the information available to you, so you can make an educated choice when discussing your treatment options with your dental professional.
Before we dive into the benefits of porcelain veneers over other options, it is important to know what they are. Porcelain veneers are essentially thin, porcelain-composite material shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Porcelain is great option because it looks more like your natural teeth than any other option. Here is a small account of the numerous benefits to porcelain veneers:
- Durable material
- Mimics tooth enamel
- Does not decay
- Does not stain or yellow
- Custom made for you
- Veneer options
In the initial consultation, you will discuss the problem you have with your smile, your goals and the various veneer options available to ensure that porcelain veneers are right for you. You will begin the preparation process at your next visit, which involves the removal of a small portion of tooth enamel imperative to securing the veneer for a natural look. After preparation, a mold will be taken of your teeth and sent to a lab that will, with specific instruction and knowledge of your needs, create the veneer. Once the veneers come back from the lab, the veneers will be bonded to the teeth using a special hardening composite glue-like material and hardened with a special LED light. It’s just that easy.
