One such treatment is porcelain veneers. This transformative procedure may be the key to helping you achieve the smile of your dreams!

Porcelain veneers, sometimes called dental veneers, are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain that Dr. Rodgers or Dr. Hughes can place over your teeth in order to disguise their aesthetic imperfections. As their name implies, they are constructed out of high-quality dental porcelain, which is extremely durable and bears a strong resemblance to natural enamel.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

If your teeth have any of the following imperfections, veneers may be the ideal solution for you:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Minor misalignment
  • Stains
  • Teeth that are too small
  • Small gaps between the teeth

Before recommending porcelain veneers, Dr. Rodgers or Dr. Hughes will carefully examine your teeth to make sure that they are healthy enough to undergo a cosmetic treatment. You should be free of gum disease, have an adequate amount of tooth enamel, and stick to excellent daily oral hygiene habits.

Dr. Rodgers or Dr. Hughes will begin the veneers process by getting to know about your goals and expectations for your new smile. Then, they’ll prepare your teeth to receive the veneers by removing a sliver of enamel from them. This step is necessary to ensure that the veneers will not make your teeth look bulky. Then, our team will take impressions of your teeth. Those impressions, along with detailed design notes, will go to the laboratory that will fabricate your veneers. You’ll wear temporary veneers while the laboratory creates your permanent ones.

When your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll return to our office for a second appointment. Dr. Rodgers or Dr. Hughes will ensure that the veneers are a perfect fit for your teeth before he permanently attaches them.

Beyond giving you a fabulous smile, some of the benefits that porcelain veneers offer include:

  • Veneers typically last for at least 10 years.
  • Stain resistance. Porcelain is nonporous, which means that it does not absorb pigments like natural tooth enamel.
  • Custom results. Everything about your veneers, including their size, shape, and color, will be tailored to complement your natural oral anatomy and facial characteristics.

Caring for Your Veneers

Caring for porcelain veneers is easy. Here are a few tips to help you maintain your beautiful new smile:

  • Stick to an excellent oral hygiene routine
  • Use a low-abrasive toothpaste so you do not accidentally scratch the porcelain
  • Do not chew on ice or any other hard objects that might chip the porcelain
  • Visit us at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning
  • Do not smoke or chew tobacco
