Do discolored, crooked, or misshapen teeth have you in need of a smile transformation? If so, porcelain dental veneers may give you the boost of confidence that you need. Arrange an appointment with one of our Clearwater dentists by calling (727) 286-3945 to find out if veneers or one of our other cosmetic dental procedures is right for you.
Is the Porcelain Veneers Procedure Right for My Dental Issues?
Our dentist will assess your dental issues to determine if veneers are the right restoration option for you. Veneers are suitable for a wide range of aesthetic dental issues. For example:
- Veneers can restore brightness to teeth that are yellow and dingy as the result of age, diet and lifestyle, or medications. Veneers come in a variety of shades, so you can customize your level of brightness. Veneers can even be used to restore teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments.
- Veneers can be used to make the size and shape of the teeth appear more balanced and in proportion with the size and shape of your face. Veneers are also an effective way to change the shape of teeth that have been worn by teeth grinding or damaged by trauma.
- If you are unhappy with the alignment or spacing of your teeth, veneers are an effective way to create a straighter smile and close gaps without the need for braces or aligners.
Call our Clearwater practice today at (727) 286-3945 to find out more about how our affordable dental veneers can improve the aesthetics of your smile.
Will My Porcelain Veneers Cost a Fortune?
We will provide you with an outline of your final porcelain veneers cost once the dentist has assessed your dental issues. The type and number of veneers required, as well as the complexity of your dental issues, will factor into the final cost. We do offer payment options to help make the cost as affordable as possible.
What Is the Difference Between Veneers and Porcelain Crowns?
Veneers and crowns are similar in that they are made from the same materials and can be used to improve the overall appearance of the teeth. Since veneers only attach to the front of the teeth, they are primarily used on healthy teeth with minor cosmetic imperfections. Crowns, which are sometimes referred to as caps or porcelain teeth, fit over the entire tooth. Crowns are primarily used to reinforce teeth when the underlying structure has been compromised by decay, trauma, or age. Crowns are often used on the back teeth since they can withstand more chewing force than veneers. Since crowns cover the entire tooth, more of the natural tooth enamel has to be removed.
Will My Teeth Feel Different Before and After Veneers?
Veneers are designed to hide cosmetic imperfections in otherwise healthy teeth by attaching to the front surface of the tooth. The veneer itself is made from thin layers of dental-grade porcelain, and the procedure is convenient and virtually painless.
Is the Porcelain Veneers Process Painful?
Unlike surgical restoration procedures, the veneers process is simple and painless. The dentist starts by creating a mold of your teeth so that the veneers can be made to the correct size and shape. In most cases, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing a small layer of the natural enamel. Once the tooth is prepped, the veneer is permanently bonded to the surface of the tooth with a special adhesive. Once in place, the veneer will never stain or shift out of place.
Is Veneer Porcelain Durable?
Veneers are comparable to natural teeth in terms of durability as long as you practice good oral hygiene and don’t use your teeth to open bottles and other items. With proper care, veneers can last decades. You care for veneers the same way you would natural teeth. You should brush twice a day, floss daily, and have regular dental exams and cleanings. If you suffer from bruxism, you should consider wearing a night guard to protect your veneers while you sleep. It is possible to damage your veneers if you bite into especially hard foods, such as candy apples.
