Porcelain Veneers Chesapeake
Transforming your smile doesn’t have to be a long, drawn-out process. Dr. Kandare provides modern cosmetic dentistry treatments that deliver fast, breathtaking results. If your teeth are chipped, gapped, stained, and/or misaligned, porcelain veneers may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the teeth that show when you smile. The porcelain that veneers are made from is durable and esthetic, and because porcelain reflects light like natural tooth enamel, they look completely natural. In just two visits, Dr. Kandare can alter tooth size, shape, color, and the overall appearance of teeth with porcelain veneers.
Why should I choose porcelain veneers?
A brighter, straighter, and more shapely smile will improve your self-confidence and make you appear more successful, friendly, and attractive. Many people prefer porcelain veneers to crowns, braces, or bonding because:
- Crowns require more tooth reduction than veneers
- Bonding will not last as long as veneers and the treated become very noticeable when the natural enamel discolors
- Braces can take years to correct misalignments, and even after orthodontics, some patients are still not happy with the shape and color of their teeth
What should I expect?
Typically, it takes two visits to design and place porcelain veneers. At your first visit, Dr. Kandare will discuss your concerns, goals, and preferences. Then he will take precise measurements and create a custom design. You will have a chance to preview your new smile before treatment begins. At your second visit, Dr. Kandare will remove a small amount of tooth enamel to ensure a tight fit. He will place your porcelain veneers, make any necessary adjustments, and viola! You can begin enjoying the benefits of a flawless smile. Depending on your unique situation, additional pre-placement appointments may be necessary to deliver maximum satisfaction.
How do I care for my porcelain veneers?
Care for your veneers as you would your natural teeth, with diligent brushing and flossing and regular trips to the dentist. The only caution we recommend is to avoid chewing hard substances like ice and avoid habitual fingernail biting. With proper care and maintenance, porcelain veneers last most people ten years or longer.
