Porcelain Veneers (sometimes called dental porcelain laminates) are strong, thin coverings that are custom fittings designed to hide and/or correct dental damage such as staining, discoloration, chipped or missing pieces of your teeth, decay, crookedness, or gaps between your teeth. They can be placed on the tops as well as the sides of your teeth to achieve this effect.
If you are looking for a long-term solution to dental issues but also have a history of persistent difficulties with other dental treatments such as teeth whitening, braces, or retainers, you are a great candidate for Porcelain Veneers.
There are many reasons why someone might elect to get Veneers, mostly due to severe issues they are having with their teeth.
Teeth may be discolored because of a past root canal, stains, the use of excessive fluoride, or other causes
Teeth have been worn down over the years through grinding or natural use
Broken or chipped tooth
Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
Closing the gaps between teeth
Veneers are wonderful options to improve your smile and here and Drill Dental Bar, we have noticed so many benefits for our patients, such as:
They have a natural-looking surface
They are strong and long-lasting
Less tooth enamel is needed to be removed
They don’t stain easily
After your dentist prepares your teeth, the veneer is carefully bonded and sculpted to your teeth using a composite material that is chosen specifically for you. A special light is then used to harden the composite, adhering it more securely to your teeth. Finally, the veneers are smoothed and polished to give you a natural-looking smile. When you elect to get Porcelain Veneers, it is a 2-3 appointment process.
First, a small amount of enamel will be removed from the front and sides of your teeth by your dentist. This allows for the veneer to rest naturally on your teeth.
Next, an impress (mold) of your prepared tooth is made. During this time, the best shade of the veneer will be decided on. This mold gets sent to a dental lab to be custom-made. This process unfortunately can take several days, but you may be administered temporary veneers to wear in the meantime.
Upon your next visit, your dentist will make sure your custom veneer fits your tooth. Once they are satisfied with the fit, your teeth will be cleaned and the veneer will be bonded to your tooth.
Any adjustments or changes can be made during future appointments.

What are some risks and complications?
The main complication we have heard from our patients is that it can take a few days to get used to their new veneers. You will be asked how they feel before you leave your application appointment so adjustments can be made.
Since veneers are very thin, if you have a history of grinding or clenching your teeth, veneers may not be for you. This can be curbed by wearing a plastic dental guard when sleeping, but there is still the possibility of cracking or breaking your veneer unintentionally.
What’s the best way to care for your Veneers?
You can prolong the look of your veneer through consistent brushing and flossing every day.
They can also break or chip under pressure, so avoid biting your fingernails or chewing on hard objects, so try to avoid chewing ice.
Are Veneers permanent?
Although they are not “permanent”, when you properly care for your teeth and veneers, they can for a very long time. Veneers can be updated and improved if needed, but will typically last between 10 and 30 years.
There is the possibility your veneer can come loose over time. If this does happen, a replacement may be needed.
