Procelain Veneers An Overview







Porcelain veneers can serve both cosmetic and restorative purposes and provide durable lasting results for patients with various dental concerns. These thin, translucent restorations effectively change the shape, size, color, or minor defects of natural teeth.








Preferred over the more economical tooth bonding treatment for lasting results, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and best for blending in with your natural teeth. They are a permanent dental restoration, providing durable, lasting, and beautiful results.








Dental Crown Vs. Dental Veneer







While crowns and veneers are very similar types of restoration, there are a few key differences. One of the main differences between them is that a dental crown covers the entire tooth, while a dental veneer only covers the front and sides of a tooth like a shell. Dental crowns can also be used for restorative dentistry as well as cosmetics.








Porcelain veneers offer a conservative treatment option for restoring a range of cosmetic dental concerns.








The Uses of Porcelain Veneers







Porcelain veneers treat a large variety of conditions. Tooth discoloration is usually treated with professional teeth whitening. But deeper stains and teeth discolored by trauma don’t respond to this treatment. We color-match them to the shade of white you desire. They cover the front and sides of the tooth, shielding the view of the discolored tooth.








As we age, our teeth discolor due to lifestyle changes. The teeth wear down and are more susceptible to cosmetic chips and cracks. Porcelain veneers give you a complete tooth again. They help to regress the age of your smile, giving you younger-looking teeth. They’re even and smooth with the rest of your teeth.








Misshapen or crooked teeth can make you insecure about your smile. They don’t look natural in the mouth and stand out from the rest of your teeth. If the issues with your teeth aren’t negatively impacting your oral health, porcelain veneers are a good way to bring back normality to your smile.








Gaps between teeth can make you uncomfortable as well as be something you want to hide. We custom-make each veneer, shaping them to match the natural size and shape of your other teeth. We can sculpt them so that they cover the gaps in your smile while still looking like natural teeth.

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect



Porcelain veneers generally take 2 – 3 visits to complete. After a comprehensive evaluation and consultation with our dentist in Greenwood, Dr. Stevens will prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from each tooth.



An impression will be taken and you will be fitted with temporary veneers while your final restorations are being created. In approximately 2–3 weeks, your new porcelain veneers will be ready. The dentist permanently attaches them to your teeth.



After the dentist checks the fit and color and both you and the dentist are satisfied, a special bonding cement will be used to secure them to your teeth.
