Below are answers to common questions regarding porcelain veneers:
Do porcelain veneers hurt?
Porcelain veneers only require a small amount of enamel removal, which most patients are able to withstand without experiencing any pain or discomfort. The veneers are applied over the front-facing portion of your natural tooth, making this a minimally invasive and conservative procedure.
Will people be able to tell that I have veneers?
The only thing people will notice about your smile once the veneers are secured is that your smile has improved cosmetic aesthetics. Veneers are designed to look like your teeth but better. We will color match your veneers to your surrounding dental structures to ensure they blend in seamlessly.
How are veneers different from dental crowns?
Dental crowns replace the entire exterior of your natural tooth, while porcelain veneers only replace the front-facing portion. This is why dental crowns are used for restorative purposes while porcelain veneers are better suited to address primarily cosmetic concerns.
What can porcelain veneers help with?
Porcelain veneers can conceal just about any minor blemish you may have on your natural teeth. Bleach-resistant stains can be concealed using a veneer. Additionally, misshapen teeth, crooked teeth, and minor chips can also be concealed using porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers make your smile appear more uniform and symmetrical, making them a great solution for patients who want to achieve a total smile makeover.
