Porcelain Veneers Q & A

What are porcelain veneers?

As one of the most popular and established enhancements in cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers have been helping men and women achieve camera-worthy smiles for decades. Although initially developed to light up the smiles of Hollywood actors, porcelain veneers are a favorite among people who want a natural-looking way to improve the appearance of their teeth.

Porcelain veneers are made of thin sheaths of medical-grade porcelain. Dr. Negru bonds these veneers to the surface of your teeth to correct a number of imperfections and deliver a flawless smile. Thanks to their lifelike appearance, your dental veneers will look just like real teeth.

Who is a good candidate for porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers can treat multiple imperfections in your teeth, leading to a perfect smile. Dr. Negru is your best bet for determining whether you should get veneers, but you may be a good candidate if you deal with any of the following:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Worn down teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Crooked or uneven teeth
  • Gaps between your teeth
  • Irregularly sized or shaped teeth

You may not qualify for veneers if you have any of the following dental problems:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Root canal infection

What are the advantages of porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers mimic the light-reflecting properties of your own tooth enamel, delivering a natural smile that blends right in. To match the shape and color of your teeth, Dr. Negru uses digital imaging systems to design your veneers.

Aside from beautiful results, porcelain veneers offer these benefits:

  • Durable and long lasting
  • Fully customizable to match neighboring teeth
  • Stain resistant

What should I expect when getting dental veneers?

First, Dr. Negru evaluates your smile to determine whether dental veneers are your answer. He discusses your concerns and goals and then customizes a treatment plan for you. He may recommend combining veneers with another treatment, such as teeth whitening.

Then, he prepares your teeth for veneer bonding by removing about half a millimeter of enamel from the surface of your tooth. This is about the same thickness as the veneer he adds. He may use local anesthesia during this step, but Ultimate Smile Dental Care has an anesthesiologist on staff in case you need to be sedated.
