What are porcelain veneers?Porcelain veneers are thin, semi-translucent “shells” made from porcelain and permanently bonded to your teeth. Veneers are a great alternative to more extensive procedures to solve cosmetic problems many patients have with their front teeth. Porcelain veneers can even provide “instant orthodontics” by making previously crooked teeth appear straight and even. In most cases, with careful planning the veneer process can be completed in only two office visits.
If you have been embarrassed about the way your teeth look, ask us how we can give you that confidence boosting, refreshing smile you can be proud of.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
- close spaces between the teeth
- fix broken or chipped teeth
- cover unsightly stained or discolored teeth
- mask crooked or misshaped teeth
Will they look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
With proper care, our patients have had veneers in place for over 20 years. The Mogelof Dental Group, LLC will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available. We advise our patients to refrain from using their teeth with veneers as tools to open and cut things. This will prolong their life, but if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
