Increase Your Smile Confidence with Porcelain Veneers in Union
Are you hiding your smile because of chipped, discolored, or misaligned teeth? If so, our experienced dentists in Union can help. Veneers are a quick and affordable way to restore the appearance of teeth that are healthy but have minor cosmetic flaws. Call today to find out more about our dental veneer restoration services.
How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
A dental veneer restoration uses thin layers of dental-grade porcelain or composite material to correct aesthetic issues involving otherwise healthy teeth. The veneer is permanently attached to the tooth and is customized to blend in with the surrounding teeth.
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?
Our Union dentists will perform a comprehensive dental exam to ensure that your teeth are healthy enough for the veneers procedure. In general, veneers are a good option for correcting the following types of issues:
Age, medications, smoking, and even the coffee and tea that we consume every day can take a toll on our teeth and add years to our appearance. If your teeth still are not as bright as you would like after traditional whitening treatments, veneers may help you achieve the smile that you want since they can be customized to your desired level of brightness.
Minor Alignment Issues
Small gaps in your smile can make you self-conscious even when they aren’t serious enough for braces or other orthodontic treatments. Veneers are a convenient way to make minor adjustments in the alignment and spacing of your teeth without the hassle and expense of braces or aligners.
Our dentists can restore the natural shape of teeth that have been chipped or shortened because of bruxism. Veneers can also be used to enhance the size or shape of the teeth so that they are more proportionate for the structure of your face and mouth.
How Do You Determine My Porcelain Veneers Cost?
We look at a number of factors when calculating the cost of your treatment, including the type of veneer used, the location of the teeth, and the number of veneers required. We will provide you with an outline of your porcelain veneers cost and discuss payment options following your initial consultation.
Do Veneers Work the Same as Porcelain Crowns?
Veneers and crowns are constructed from similar materials, but they have different uses. Veneers are typically used to correct minor imperfections in the appearance of the teeth and only attach to the front of the affected teeth. Crowns are designed to cover the entire surface of the tooth. Crowns, which are also known as caps, are commonly used following root canals to reinforce the structure of the tooth. They can also be used when most of the tooth structure has been lost because of trauma or teeth grinding. For a crown to fit properly, the tooth normally has to be prepped by removing some of the natural tooth enamel.
What Happens During the Porcelain Veneers Procedure?
Getting veneers porcelain placed starts with the dentist making an impression of your teeth. This will ensure that your veneers blend in with your natural teeth and fit comfortably. In most cases, the dentist will remove a small amount of the natural tooth enamel and attach the veneer using a high-bond dental cement. The process is completely painless. When you leave our office, you will have a beautiful new smile that looks and feels completely natural.
How Long Does Veneer Porcelain Last?
Our veneers are made from high-quality materials that can last for decades with proper care. Veneers, however, can be damaged if you use your teeth for things other than chewing, such as opening bottles or packages. It is still important to brush and floss daily and to have regular dental checkups.
Are Porcelain Teeth Easy to Maintain?
Brushing and flossing are normally the only daily maintenance required. Patients who suffer from bruxism, a condition where you grind or clench your teeth, or who play contact sports should wear a custom-fitted mouthguard to protect their teeth. If you have veneers on your front teeth, you should avoid biting into hard foods, such as candy apples.
