What Do Porcelain Veneers Do?

Correcting a wide array of dental problems, porcelain veneers are a highly versatile cosmetic dentistry innovation. Veneers are commonly used to enhance a smile marred by:

  • Broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Stains and discoloration
  • Certain spacing issues
  • Worn teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

A porcelain veneer is placed over the front of your tooth to create a new tooth surface. The porcelain material we use is very strong. It resists breaking, cracking and staining. You could have your veneers for decades before they may need to be replaced. Another advantage of porcelain veneers is that their placement is minimally invasive and painless. Dr. Adler will bond them to your teeth so they essentially become your new enamel.

At Adler Advanced Dentistry, we strive to give you the style of veneers that suits you and your personality. Whether you want a bright Hollywood smile or other aesthetic smile qualities, we will guide you through the process of discovering the smile that enhances your look to the fullest. We don’t believe everyone has the same goals in mind when it comes to their smiles, and we encourage our guests to give us feedback on creating the smile of their dreams.

Porcelain Veneers At Adler Advanced Dentistry

Porcelain veneers are thin, but extremely durable porcelain coverings that are bonded to the front of natural teeth to conceal tooth flaws and create a stunning smile. In this way, veneers create a smile that has straight, uniform teeth, with each side of the smile symmetrical to the other. Porcelain veneers are sometimes referred to as "instant orthodontics" because of their ability to create straight teeth in just 1 to 2 visits to the dentist's office. Although, in some cases of misalignment, traditional orthodontics or Invisalign® are necessary prior to porcelain restorations. The only way to know for sure is to visit us for a consultation.

At Adler Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Adler and our entire team are fully committed to providing our guests with options as they consider treatment. Dr. Adler will present multiple treatment approaches and explain all the available alternatives. You are the only person who can make decisions about your dental care, and we provide you with the education you need to make an informed decision for yourself.

Are Dental Veneers Permanent?

While dental veneers are not permanent, they can improve the appearance of your smile for a very long time. Most people enjoy their veneers for over a decade without needing repairs or replacements. Be aware that the longevity of your veneers will largely depend on what they are made of and how well you care for them. Porcelain dental veneers are more durable than composite resin ones. They are better at resisting damage, discoloration, and other potential problems. Choose a porcelain material to get the most out of your investment in veneers. After you get them placed, be sure to brush, floss, and schedule regular visits to our Boulder dental office. These simple steps will extend the lifespan of your veneers. If you do happen to chip or damage one of your restorations, contact us right away.

Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are a great fit for many people because they are so versatile. The ideal candidate for porcelain veneers is interested in treating one or more cosmetic dental concerns to reveal a stunning smile. You may choose veneers to help with discoloration, chipped or broken teeth, spacing issues, and other imperfections. However, if you have serious misalignment or other pronounced issues, a different approach could be necessary. You also need good oral health to qualify for veneers. If you have issues such as gum disease or cavities, those will need to be fixed first. Our dentist will also want to make sure that your tooth structure is healthy enough to support veneers.

How Long Does It Take To Install Dental Veneers?

After you have completed your free initial consultation, it usually takes one or two appointments to install dental veneers. The first appointment involves preparing your teeth and making a mold that will be used to create your custom veneers over the next few weeks. In the meantime, you will get temporary veneers to wear. The second and final appointment involves placing your permanent veneers. You will have a chance to check how they look and fit before they get bonded to your teeth. While both visits can take several hours, patients find that their beautiful new smiles are worth the wait.

Will Dental Veneers Damage My Natural Teeth?

Veneers will not damage your natural teeth if they are placed by an experienced dentist. Your teeth will remain healthy and functional throughout the entire process. Some preparation is required in order to make room for the veneers and avoid a bulky-looking result. That means removing a very small amount of enamel from the surface of your tooth. After the veneers have been bonded in place, your natural teeth will have a strong layer of protection. Keep in mind that you may be able to opt for no-prep or low-prep veneers. Lumineers® are one such option that preserve more of your natural tooth enamel. Dr. Adler can help determine which type of veneer is best for you.

Are There Diet Restrictions After Getting Porcelain Veneers?

You will need to follow some diet restrictions while you are wearing temporary veneers. Temporaries are not as resilient as real teeth or permanent veneers and can be damaged by tough, crunchy, and chewy food. Avoid eating or drinking anything sweet, acidic, hot, or cold to minimize sensitivity. There are not many diet restrictions after getting your final porcelain veneers. Still, it is a good idea to stay away from anything too hard or crunchy. You do not want to chip a veneer or a tooth. Because porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, you do not have to worry about discoloration. But you may want to limit your consumption of staining foods and beverages to keep your natural teeth looking white.
