What are Porcelain Dental Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers have become one of the most popular treatment options in cosmetic dentistry. You’ve likely seen many celebrities and models in magazines with dental veneers. That’s simply because they are one of the best ways to achieve a perfect looking, beautiful smile. Though, what exactly are dental veneers? Are veneers permanent? How much do porcelain veneers cost? These are all common questions we receive. We’ll try to answer as many of your questions as we can below.
Porcelain dental veneers use thin porcelain covering that goes over the visible part of the tooth. They look very natural and can work very well for people wanting to repair chipped or misshaped teeth, fill gaps between their teeth, or hide discolored teeth. Our dentist at River Oak Dental will work with you to create the perfect veneers. We make sure to match the shade of the veneer to your existing teeth so they seamlessly blend together. Each thin porcelain covering is custom fit and then bonded to each individual tooth. This leaves you with a very natural-looking smile that will have you feeling happier and more confident instantly.
How Long to Porcelain Dental Veneers Last?
Porcelain dental veneers are not considered permanent since they will likely need to be replaced at some point. However, with proper care, they can easily last several decades before needing any sort of replacement. This is as long as they are porcelain. Composite veneers generally only last between five to seven years. Porcelain veneer costs can vary depending on several factors.
