Dental veneers or porcelain veneers are a popular tooth repair treatment for small chips, wear, and cracks. They are wafer-thin sheets of porcelain that attach to the front of your natural tooth. Many people wonder about the durability of porcelain veneers, but you don’t have to. They’re made of highly durable ceramic material specially made for you and your smile.
As a bonus, porcelain veneers look fantastic. They’re often known as a one-procedure “smile makeover” when you get a whole mouth of veneers. They’ll hide imperfections other than damage, such as crookedness, small teeth, gapped teeth, misshapen teeth, and stained teeth.
Your treatment in Las Vegas will take two appointments. At the first appointment, your cosmetic dentist will shave off a small portion of your enamel to make room for the veneers. This ensures that they don’t feel bulky in your mouth. Next, we’ll take digital images and send them to the lab where your custom veneers are created. While you wait for your new teeth, you’ll wear temporary veneers to protect your teeth and keep them looking great. We’ll call you back into the office when your new teeth arrive and permanently attach your new veneers.
*Note: Porcelain veneers are permanent because we have to shave a small portion of your enamel off.
Review: Dental veneers can cover and protect small chips, wear, and cracks in two appointments.
