What Are Porcelain Dental Veneers?
Although porcelain veneers can completely transform your appearance, they can be affixed in just a few brief visits. If you are seeking a cosmetic dentistry option that provides the confidence you lack, then porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution.
Porcelain veneers are custom made for each patient. Each one is a sheer shell that is bonded to the front of your visible teeth, thus creating a new and brilliant smile. The porcelain reflects light in much the same fashion that tooth enamel does, giving you natural-looking results. Moreover, porcelain is extremely unlikely to cause gum irritation and is incredibly durable.
Why Choose Porcelain Dental Veneers?
Other dental procedures can change and improve your smile, but most of these are incredibly invasive and can take months or even years to complete. Porcelain dental veneers are much less invasive, and the required procedure is much less uncomfortable.
Moreover, it is possible to match porcelain veneers to your natural tooth color or dramatically lighten it for a brighter smile instantly.
You care for porcelain veneers the same way that you do your natural teeth, and they can last for between ten and 15 years, though there have been cases in which veneers last for 30 years.
How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed?
When you get porcelain veneers at Seduction Cosmetic, the process begins with a comprehensive consultation. An impression will be taken of your teeth. This makes it possible to create custom veneers at our lab. The veneers are made to match the shape, color and size of your teeth. Typically, it takes about one week to make the porcelain veneers.
At your next appointment, the teeth to be treated are prepared by removing a small portion of the enamel. Removing the enamel provides a flat surface to make it easier to affix the veneer. Moreover, this helps the veneer to lay in line with your gum tissue.
Once the teeth are prepared, a temporary veneer is placed using a removable glue. Patients are encouraged to brush their teeth gently and to avoid eating any difficult to chew foods that might push the temporary veneer out of place.
On your third visit, the permanent veneers will be ready to be affixed. Seduction Cosmetic removes the temporary veneers and checks to ensure that the permanent veneers are an ideal fit. A temporary, water-based solution is used to affix the porcelain veneer so that the doctor and the patient can approve the final look. Adjustments can be made at this time if they are necessary.
When the porcelain veneer is perfect, the tooth is cleaned and a permanent adhesive is used to adhere the veneer to the tooth.
Patients love the instantaneous results. They can start flashing their brand new smile immediately after the procedure.
Care After Porcelain Veneers
It is not unusual for patients to experience some soreness in their teeth for a few days after the procedure is complete. Generally, this discomfort is tolerated well, and an over-the-counter pain reliever helps patients to stay comfortable during this time. The application of cold compresses may help to reduce swelling, and patients are encouraged to get as much rest as possible.
It’s recommended that patients with new porcelain veneers exercise care in their food choices for a few days after the procedure. Softer foods are better choices to guarantee the best possible results.
Porcelain vs. Composite
If you’ve been thinking about improving your smile, chances are good that you have read about composite resin veneers too. Porcelain and composite veneers do have some things in common. They are made out of different materials, but both are designed to match your teeth and are affixed to the outer surface of your teeth.
However, composite veneers are quicker to affix because they generally can be prepared while you wait in the chair. The dentist matches the composite to your teeth to give them a natural appearance. The resin is then applied to the teeth, cured and polished. Accordingly, it is possible to leave with your new smile in a single visit.
While they are quicker to affix, composite veneers tend to not last as long. Time periods of four to eight years are typical, but porcelain veneers last an average of ten to 15 years.
In general, most people find that the results achieved with porcelain tend to be better because porcelain mimics the look of natural teeth more closely than composite does. Porcelain also is stain resistant while composite resin will stain like your own teeth do.
