If you’re ready to transform your smile with porcelain veneers in Medina, give us a call today!
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of dental ceramic that are placed over the front-facing surfaces of your problem teeth. Each veneer is custom-made to perfectly resemble a natural part of your smile while simultaneously correcting aesthetic imperfections.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Virtually anyone who is unsatisfied with the teeth smiling back at them in the mirror would be an excellent candidate for porcelain veneers. They can be applied to your teeth to correct a variety of flaws, including:
- Stubborn stains
- Slight gaps
- Worn-down or misshapen teeth
Before we can place veneers, your teeth must be free of infections. If you have any instance of gum disease or cavities on your affected teeth, we’ll have to address those issues prior to placing veneers.
The Porcelain Veneers Procedure
After a consultation with Dr. Milewski, your cosmetic dentist in Medina, to determine that veneers are right for you, getting veneers generally takes two appointments. During the first visit, we’ll prepare your problem teeth by removing a tiny layer of enamel that’s about equal in thickness to a contact lens. Doing this will ensure that your veneers won’t bulge out against the line of your smile.
After your teeth have been prepped, we’ll take impressions of them and send them to a partnered dental lab. There, a team of skilled ceramists will craft your veneers. Because this will take a few weeks, we can place temporary veneers to protect your teeth in the meantime. Once your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll return to our office and we’ll remove your temporaries. Then we’ll place your permanent restorations, and voila! Your smile will be completely transformed!
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers come with many advantages over other cosmetic treatments, including:
- Requiring less enamel removal than dental crowns
- Being able to correct multiple smile flaws in just one easy treatment
- Being highly resistant to staining, much more so than natural tooth enamel
- Being incredibly durable and able to withstand the daily pressures of biting and chewing
- Having the ability to last for up to 20 years with proper care, which includes regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups and cleanings
