What are Porcelain Veneers?

Are your dental injuries creating a misbalanced bite? Do you have single, stained teeth that impact the overall look of your smile? Dr. Jacob Grapevine offers porcelain veneers in his Plano, TX dental office. Dental veneers are shells of porcelain ceramic that cover the front of teeth. They can cover gaps between teeth, tooth wear, stained teeth, shortened teeth, and chips and cracks in the tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers are a durable cosmetic dental treatment that creates more uniform and brighter smiles.

How do I know if I am a candidate for porcelain veneer treatment?

The best candidates for porcelain veneers are in good oral health but have tooth damage, wear, or discoloration. We can ensure that the teeth and gums are free from infection prior to treatment for the best results possible.

What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?

Dental veneers are made of porcelain ceramic, which reflects light just like natural teeth. The veneer shells are thin, which means they easily blend in with the look of other teeth. In addition, dental veneers are more stain-resistant than bonding and often last longer.

How long do dental veneers last?

Dental veneers can last for years when they are cared for properly. Compared to dental bonding, porcelain veneers often last longer because they are made of durable material. Veneers can also appear brighter for longer, especially if patients refrain from tobacco use, coffee, wine, and tea.

Do dental veneers damage the teeth?

No, we do prepare teeth to ensure that they conform to the enamel, but this does not damage the teeth. Removing a small layer of the tooth enamel helps the veneers bond to the teeth and look as natural as possible. Preparing the teeth does not change the overall tooth structure or injure them.
