Learn More About Porcelain Veneers During A Consultation

By setting up a cosmetic consultation with your Rochester, MN dentist’s office, you can find out how cosmetic work can make dramatic improvements to your smile. One treatment many patients have benefited from is the placement of porcelain veneers. Veneers offer advantages for many patients, because they are capable of covering up many different flaws that might hurt the way a person looks. During your consultation, you can find out how veneers hide problems with wear and tear, dental damage, discoloration, and even issues with the spacing and shape of certain teeth! Once placed, veneers are a permanent fixture, and they can offer lasting benefits for your appearance. 

How Porcelain Veneers Are Placed

Porcelain veneers are affixed directly to your enamel, and they provide lasting changes once in position. To make sure they fit properly, and look natural, some removal of your tooth structure may be required. The placement process requires two separate appointments. During the first visit, measurements are taken to plan your custom cosmetic restorations. You will return once your custom veneers are ready to put in position.

You Can Enjoy Lasting Improvements From Your Veneers

The goal of veneers is to offer natural-looking improvements that last for many years. The porcelain material your restorations are made with can maintain their condition and appearance over time, even under the continued pressure of biting and chewing. With that said, you should be mindful that bad habits can hurt your veneers, just as they can hurt your teeth. Teeth grinding can lead to premature signs of wear on your veneers. If you regularly drink beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine, you may accumulate some stains.

What Else Can I Ask About During A Cosmetic Consultation?

During a cosmetic consultation, you can acquire useful information about the field of cosmetic dentistry, and learn what procedure might be able to help you. If you want to make changes in less time than it takes to place veneers, you can talk to your dentist about a bonding treatment, which can be done in as little as one appointment.
