FAQs on Porcelain Veneers

What are veneers?

When you think of the word veneer, you may think of furniture veneers or laminates. These generally decorative pieces of wood add to the aesthetic appeal of the furniture. Dental veneers are similar in that the patient's desired smile can be designed out of thin layers of porcelain that are placed on the fronts of the teeth, giving the desired appearance of the smile.

Why are veneers made of porcelain?

Porcelain is the most natural looking and stain resistant material, which shares the same light-reflecting characteristics and temperature reactions as natural tooth enamel. Porcelain is also a durable material, often lasting up to ten years or more.

Are dental veneers painful?

Patients with high levels of sensitivity may wish for mild sedation, which is typically effective for the preparation of the teeth and the insertion of the laminate porcelain.

What problems can be solved with veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a highly versatile treatment for a multitude of imperfections in the smile, including gapping, crooked, discolored, chipped, or otherwise unattractive teeth.

How long does treatment take?

Preparation and placement of porcelain veneers can often be completed in just two visits. The veneers can be custom designed in a professional dental laboratory and returned in as little as a week.

How do I care for veneers?

It is important to continue to brush and floss as normal and avoid using teeth to break open hard materials such as peanut shells. For more information about long-lasting and beautiful porcelain veneers, contact Asheville Smile Center today at (828) 585-4049.
