What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a type of ceramic veneers customized to fit the size, shape, color, and length of your natural teeth. These veneers offer patients a quick and easy way to cover multiple issues, such as:

  • Crooked teeth

  • Uneven teeth

  • Chipped teeth

  • Dental decay

  • Stained or yellowing teeth

  • Other minor dental imperfections

Dr. Oh can help you determine if porcelain veneers can help you fix your dental concerns.

What should I know about porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a better option for cosmetic concerns than functional issues, such as issues with speaking or eating. While there are some issues that could prevent you from getting porcelain veneers, uneven teeth are not one of them. Veneers can even be used to cover the appearance of your uneven teeth. However, some dental issues can keep you from getting porcelain veneers. For example, if you have active tooth infections, cavities, periodontal disease, or other infections, these problems will need to be resolved before veneers can be applied. If you are a habitual teeth grinder, you could break your veneers, so they may not be the best option for you. Porcelain veneers require little upkeep besides a basic oral hygiene routine. This routine should include:

  • Brushing at least twice a day

  • Flossing regularly

  • Using mouthwash daily

  • Attending dental exams and cleanings twice a year

Dr. Oh can help you create a smile that you love. Porcelain veneers can help you improve the overall appearance of your teeth, smile, and mouth.

How do porcelain veneers get applied?

Getting porcelain veneers is a multiple-step process that occurs in two different appointments. At the first appointment, Dr. Oh will take impressions of your teeth using either physical or digital means. Veneers can be made in-house, or they can be sent off to a dental laboratory to be made. Once the veneers are created, a small amount of your dental enamel will be taken off to allow the veneers to fit better, and the bond can be stronger. After your enamel is removed, the porcelain veneers will be placed on your teeth and bonded with them. Small adjustments can be made to ensure the veneers are as comfortable as possible.
