Porcelain Veneers May Be Right for You

Are you a Northwest Ohio resident who’s in need of a cosmetic grin upgrade? Do you need assistance achieving the smile you’ve always dreamed of having? Porcelain veneers may be just what you’ve been looking for.

Also known as dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates, they can be a solution for a variety of issues such as worn down or discolored teeth. Though porcelain veneers are irreversible, they aren’t considered to be permanent and may eventually have to be replaced.

Even so, they have been known to last for decades with the proper care, and some patients never have to replace them at all.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are strong, thin, tooth-colored shells that are custom-made to fit each patient’s teeth and can improve the overall appearance of your smile. They are designed to cover the front surface of each tooth and are also made to resist stains better than veneers made from resin. Though veneers can be made from several different kinds of material, veneers made out of porcelain are better at mimicking the light-reflecting properties of your natural teeth to make them look more uniform. They also act as a protective layer to keep your teeth safe from damage and can change the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth.

Benefits of a Veneer:

  • Porcelain veneers can fix teeth that have been stained as a result of root canal treatment, excessive fluoride, resin fillings, use of tetracycline or other drugs, and a variety of other causes.
  • They can also help make your smile whiter and are resistant to staining.
  • Veneers look natural and blend in well with your teeth.
  • They interact well with your gums.
  • Porcelain veneers generally do not have to be shaped as much as crowns do.

Minimal Prep Veneers

As opposed to no-prep veneers, which generally need no or very limited change to the structure of your teeth, minimal-prep veneers require that a small amount of tooth enamel is removed. These veneers also require that the structure of the tooth is reshaped in order to allow for an even fit. Minimal prep veneers are more common than no-prep veneers, often have a longer-lasting color, and provide a more permanent solution to tooth discoloration.
