Here at Picasso Smiles Dental, we understand the importance of helping all our patients along the path to the beautiful, healthy smile of their dreams. Routine check-ups, cleanings, and exams are vital to maintaining pristine oral health, but sometimes an additional procedure is necessary to either protect or enhance the appearance of teeth. That is why we offer the latest and greatest treatments in cosmetic dentistry, one of which is veneers. Here are some frequently asked questions about veneers, as well as answers to those queries from your El Paso dentists here at Picasso Smiles Dental.
What are veneers? Dental veneers are thin layers of porcelain material that are placed over the surface of teeth. They help protect and enhance the appearance of teeth, including areas affected by gaps, stains, chips, and misalignments. They are an alternative to crowns, which are much more noticeable and usually made of metal.
How well do veneers fit? Porcelain veneers are custom-fit with the help of impression molds, so they are the best possible fit for your teeth. They are bonded to the teeth by strong, safe dental cement that will last for years and years.
Do veneers look natural? Veneers are so popular because they are specifically developed to match the tint of your teeth, so they appear exactly like a normal tooth in your mouth would.
What is the process of getting veneers installed? Once you schedule a consultation, your El Paso dentistry expert will create a specific plan of action catered solely for you on how the process will transpire. You will come in twice for the service, and then you will be set with the smile you have always wanted!
How long do veneers last? Porcelain veneers are made from durable, long-lasting ceramic material, so you can rest assured that they will be around for decades. If they ever need any maintenance, please schedule an appointment with your dentist immediately.
