How long do veneers last?
If you are considering enhancing your smile, porcelain veneers are an excellent choice. With the potential to last 12 to 15 years, veneers allow you to create the smile of your dreams. In fact, many of the Hollywood smiles we admire so much today have actually been designed with porcelain veneers.
What is a Dental Veneer?
A veneer is made of a thin shell of porcelain that is customized to fit over your tooth. This allows it to cover imperfections such as:
- Stains or discoloration
- Small fractures or chipping
- Size discrepancies
- Misshapen teeth
- Excessive wear
- Gaps or spacing between teeth
- Slight misalignment issues
The Process of Completing Veneers
Dr. Yenchesky can help you redesign your smile, and then veneers can typically be completed in two appointments. During the first appointment, he will prepare your teeth and create temporary veneers for you to wear that will help you get used to the look and feel of your new smile. You will wear these for a week or two while your permanent restorations are being fabricated at a local dental laboratory. The second appointment will be the permanent placement of your porcelain veneers, and now is the time to make any necessary adjustments to your new smile.
Your WI dentist is happy to discuss your new smile with you, give us a call to schedule your consultation with Dr. Yenchesky today.
