If you are like most people, you probably feel you could have nicer teeth or a better smile. Luckily, there are cosmetic dentistry options to help you get the smile you have always wanted. One such option is porcelain veneers.
Veneers Require More Than One Appointment
One of the most important things to understand about porcelain veneers is that you will need to schedule more than one appointment to complete the process. Your dentist will need to perform a smile analysis first to determine if you’re a candidate for the procedure and discuss what you hope to achieve with veneers. From there, you can schedule appointments for the actual procedure.
Your Veneers Will Be Completely Customized
Many people decide they want to try veneers because of the customization options available. Your dentist will discuss what you like and don’t like about your teeth and smile and help you come up with a plan to create your perfect smile. He or she will measure your enamel’s thickness as well as your bite and pulp tissue to ensure your veneers are flattering and look natural.
Veneers May Need to Be Replaced in the Future
If you decide to get veneers, you should note that they don’t last forever. However, when you take proper care of them, they can last for as long as 20 years. Your dentist will show you how to properly care for them. When you do need to replace them, they likely won’t all need to be fixed at once, which means you can stagger the costs of replacement. Signs of wear include chips, broken sections, or discrepancies in color.
