A Perfect, Bright White Smile Can be Yours with Porcelain Veneers from Dublin Dental Care
We believe everyone deserves the confidence and joy that comes from a beautiful smile. Our dentists have helped patients just like you achieve outstanding results with dental veneers. Veneers can be the perfect solution to correct broken, chipped, discolored or misshaped teeth. If it’s the Hollywood smile that you’re after. Porcelain veneers are the obvious choice.
So, what are porcelain veneers?
You can think of veneers as a thin shell of porcelain or composite resin that is custom molded and designed to fit precisely over your teeth. These tiny shells are then glued to your teeth using a powerful dental cement. Your newly placed veneers mask any imperfections creating a flawless smile.
After examining your teeth, our dentists may recommend either porcelain or composite veneers. Composite veneers can be a quick solution and can sometimes even be completed in one visit. Porcelain veneers are generally more durable and stain-resistant, but they require some lab work and a second visit to prep and place. Our doctors will discuss the best options for you based on your case, budget and expectations.
How do I care for my new porcelain veneers?
Once your veneers are placed, they are virtually maintenance free. You’ll simply need to follow your normal oral hygiene routine of regular twice-daily brushing and flossing.
How long will my veneers last?
Generally speaking, composite veneers will last 5-7 years, while porcelain veneers will last at least 10 to 15 years and often much longer. While incredibly durable, your new veneers are not indestructible and just like your normal teeth they will wear, chip or could become damaged and need replaced over time.
Okay, I’m ready.
Now what is the process?
The process for veneers is very simple. During your initial visit, your dentist will do a comprehensive exam the help determine the health of your teeth and gums. This includes taking x-rays, photos, intra-oral video and other state-of-the-art diagnostics to help our team determine the best course of action to achieve results that will certainly exceed your expectations.
Next, the doctor will create a model of your teeth and (if necessary) send the veneers out to a lab to be created. This process can take up to a week or two. When your veneers are ready, we’ll have you back for one final visit to place them. This usually involves trimming about ½ millimeter from the tooth enamel and roughening the tooth surface to help improve adhesion between your veneer and tooth surface. Finally, an ultraviolet light is used to harden the cement quickly. That’s it. You’re done.
