Dental porcelain veneers are a thin layer of porcelain material that adheres to the tooth surface. They are custom-made, including size, shape and color, to give the person receiving them a completely new look. A dental veneer is a thin covering that is placed over the front of a tooth to improve its appearance and correct a variety of aesthetic problems. Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain material that have the shape and color to look like natural teeth.
They can hide stains, gaps, discoloration, chips, cracks, and tooth deformity at the same time. When considering porcelain veneers, it's important to understand the process and cost involved. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Skasko, can improve the appearance of patients' smiles by improving characteristics such as the shape, size and color of their teeth.
To create custom porcelain veneers, Dr. Skasko will attach custom-made porcelain shells to prepared or unprepared teeth using a series of contemporary bonding procedures. Porcelain veneers are durable but not ideal for people who require general or restorative work, such as crowns, inlays, or onlays. Porcelain allows some light to pass through, giving it reflective properties similar to those of natural tooth enamel.
The cost of porcelain veneers will be different for each patient due to the level of customization involved. At Firouzian Dentistry in Columbus, OH, we ensure that your veneers are made of the highest quality porcelain and are joined together with cutting-edge technology. We also present alternative options that may be more appropriate such as porcelain crowns, teeth whitening or cosmetic adhesives. Although porcelain veneers resist stains, your dentist may recommend that you avoid foods and drinks that cause stains (for example, coffee, tea, or red wine).
Chipped or fractured porcelain veneers cannot be repaired so your dentist will tell you about the costs and additional time associated with replacing a damaged restoration. Porcelain veneers are among the most flexible tools available to cosmetic dentists for achieving a dazzling smile. They can fix various dental imperfections such as discolored teeth, broken teeth etc., while also increasing confidence and self-esteem.
