What Are Porcelain Veneers?

They are securely bonded onto the enamel to ensure that they are stable enough to withstand normal dental pressure. Veneers can be customized to look just the way you want them to -- from the color to the size and shape. That means the result is as natural looking as it is gorgeous.

Different Types of Porcelain Veneers

There is no one-size-fits-all in cosmetic dentistry, and during a cosmetic consultation, Dr. Moriarty will put together a treatment plan using the type of porcelain veneer that is best for your smile.

The two types of porcelain veneers available include:

Traditional Porcelain Veneers

Traditional veneers are placed over the course of two visits to Mor Smiles. In the first, a small amount of tooth enamel will need to be removed from the front surface of the teeth to make room for a new layer to be placed on top. You will need to wear temporary veneers to cover up the surface of the teeth in the time between visits. Because enamel has been removed, traditional veneers are irreversible -- you will always need something covering the tooth.

Minimal-Prep Veneers

Minimal-prep veneers are thinner than the traditional sort -- about the width of a contact lens. Because it will not take up as much space when bonded on top of the tooth, a minimal-prep veneer can usually be placed without removing any of the tooth enamel. This means that minimal-prep veneers can often be completed in a single visit to Mor Smiles -- no need for temporaries or a follow-up visit. Furthermore, if you wish to return to your natural tooth structure later on, you can.

What Is the Procedure for Porcelain Veneers?

Dental x-rays, images, and bite impressions are taken following dental preparation and sent to a lab where the custom veneer is milled. Before leaving this initial appointment, patients receive a temporary veneer that is worn until the custom restoration is complete. Once we receive the final veneer, patients return to exchange the temporary for the permanent veneer. Patients experience little to no discomfort during or after the procedure, and are typically able to resume daily activities as soon as numbness wears off.

What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers offer a number of benefits for patients who wish to enhance their smiles. Some of the most considerable advantages include:

How Can Porcelain Veneers Transform My Smile?

As long as the teeth are healthy and have not sustained any structural damage, the chances that you can benefit from porcelain veneers are good. Veneers can close gaps between teeth and cover up stains, chips, uneven surfaces, and more. After they have been placed, they can completely remake the appearance of your smile -- into whatever you would like it to be!
