am i a candidate for porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers may be used to rapidly mask stains and chips in your teeth, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are poorly spaced or shaped. At our facility, your porcelain veneers will be custom created to fit snugly over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. At your consultation, Dr. Gombert will listen to your objectives and concerns so he can personalize your procedure. Dr. Gombert may also find out whether you're a good candidate for porcelain veneers by checking the overall health of your mouth. You shouldn't have symptoms of periodontal disease, or routinely grind your teeth and clench your jaw.

how do porcelain veneers work?

At our practice, the porcelain veneer process is quite simple. First, you will meet with Dr. Gombert for a complimentary consultation. He will answer all your questions in regard to smile design and review with you the different options we offer for the procedure. We will then discuss your facial characteristics and the aesthetic you want when the process is complete. A member of our team will then gather some diagnostic information, including x-rays, digital images, and models of your current smile. Finally, will then create a mock-up of your potential smile using wax. This will aid the ceramist in the creation of your custom veneers.

At the following appointment, Dr. Gombert will begin reshaping your teeth to prepare them for your custom porcelain veneers. Another impression will be taken following the reshaping so that your temporary veneers will fit properly. These temporary veneers will give you a preview of your new smile. 

Finally, Dr. Gombert will verify that your new custom veneer will fit perfectly before bonding the new porcelain veneers into place. Your new smile will be complete!

what to expect after receiving porcelain veneers?

Since getting veneers normally doesn't require anesthesia, you ought to be able to continue your daily tasks following your appointment. You might experience sensitivity to cold and hot meals for a couple of days, but that should fade away. Veneers should be cared for just like your own natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing. While cosmetic veneers are stain resistant compared to the natural teeth, you still need to stay away from staining drinks and food to keep your veneers white. To prevent harming your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, like your fingernails or ice. Continue to make dental examinations and cleanings at our facility so that we can track the condition of your porcelain veneers, teeth, gums, and general oral health. Dr. Gombert will tell you if your cosmetic veneers have to be replaced or repaired.

are porcelain veneers covered by insurance?

Porcelain veneers are an elective treatment, so they're usually not paid by dental insurance. We do take many payment options, such as low-interest medical financing, to make your veneers more affordable. At the consult, Dr. Gombert will personalize your treatment to meet your needs and budget. He will discuss a quote for your veneers and explore your payment choices.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

  1. Are porcelain veneers as strong as natural teeth?

Porcelain veneers are exceptionally durable and can provide patient's with a stronger and more reliable smile compared to natural teeth that may be chipped or cracked. Still, porcelain veneers can also become damaged or worn over time. To prevent this, patients should avoid biting their fingernails, using their teeth to open packages, and chewing hard, crunchy, or sticky foods. Additionally, a protective mouth guard should be worn during sports, while a nightguard can also be beneficial for preventing damage and wear that may occur while sleeping.

2. Can porcelain veneers be whitened?

Porcelain veneers will not respond to professional or at-home teeth whitening products in the same way that natural teeth do. While porcelain veneers are incredibly stain-resistant, they can still become discolored - making it essential that patients practice good dental hygiene and avoid staining foods and beverages, like coffee, tea, and red wine.

3. Can I get a single porcelain veneer?

Yes, it is possible to conceal a single tooth with a porcelain veneer. However, most patients achieve a more desirable look with the placement of multiple, consecutive veneers. This often yields a more seamless and beautiful appearance.
