What To Expect During The Porcelain Veneers Process
Each veneer is custom designed to meet the unique needs of the patient. Dr. Gittleman evaluates the condition of your teeth and discusses your cosmetic goals and expectations to determine if porcelain veneers are right for you.
The ideal candidate for porcelain veneer should have the following traits:
- Healthy teeth that are free of decay
- Don’t have gum disease
- Sufficient amount of healthy tooth enamel
- Don’t grind or clench your teeth
- Aligned bite
Dr. Gittleman can design your custom veneers during your first appointment and place them during your second visit. Each veneer is specially crafted to suit your aesthetic needs.
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. Dr. Gittleman prepares teeth for treatment by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. He then takes an impression of the teeth.
On the second visit, the teeth are cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
Yes, for all intents and purposes porcelain veneers are a permanent restoration. They are not removable by the patient, or interchangeable. However, your dentist may remove them in rare occasions. If they are removed, they may not be able to be reattached and you would have to get brand new ones.
Will porcelain veneers raise my risk of developing cavities or tooth decay?
No. Porcelain veneers are made of safe material that can not contribute to tooth decay. Your veneers actually act as a barrier, protecting the front of your teeth. Although there is a small chance of developing cavities under your veneers in very rare cases where a cavity was not addressed before the veneer was placed.
Can my porcelain veneers become stained?
No, dental veneers are highly stain-resistant because they are made of material that does not absorb. They will not become discolored like natural teeth and you can not get then whitened with teeth whitening procedures. For this reason it is recommended that you get teeth whitening before getting veneers.
