Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic procedure designed to help improve the appearance of your smile by fixing chips, cracks, gaps, and discoloration. It’s no wonder so many Hollywood celebrities opt for veneers for their megawatt smiles!

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a permanent cosmetic procedure that instantly enhances the appearance of your smile. They are designed to improve issues such as: 

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Gaps
  • Uneven teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth

Veneers are made from thin sheets of porcelain, and are custom-designed to match the look of your natural smile for a result you won’t stop smiling about.

Procedure for Porcelain Veneers 

If you’re interested in porcelain veneers, you’ll first have a consultation with the team at Atlantic Dental Partners so we can understand your concerns and develop a treatment plan just for you. Once we’ve determined porcelain veneers are the right option, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to create your veneers. The process of designing your veneers typically takes a few weeks.

Placing the Veneers

When your veneers are ready, we’ll bond them to your teeth! While veneers themselves are not permanent, dental veneers are considered a permanent procedure because we might have to shave down the enamel from your natural teeth to make sure your veneers fit on them snugly. Veneers do not ruin your natural teeth, but you should treat them as your new enamel layer and care for them as you would natural teeth. That means brushing and flossing them twice a day to keep them bacteria and stain free. You should also visit your dentist twice a year for cleanings and examinations. When cared for well, porcelain veneers can last up to 25 years!
