Porcelain veneers are commonly used in smile improvement treatment plans because they are incredibly versatile. They can be used to cover many imperfections including misalignment, permanent staining, gaps between teeth, and fractures. They can even be used on teeth that are too short or unusually shaped to improve the aesthetics of the smile. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat encourages many patients to consider porcelain veneers because they have a number of advantages. They are:
- Stain resistant
Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat works with patients to determine if they are appropriate candidates for veneers. Most patients are. There are rarely reasons why patients may need to avoid porcelain veneers. Patients must understand, however, that veneers do not reduce their risk for developing cavities on the teeth underneath and that their smile is still at risk for damage due to periodontal disease. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat encourages patients to have healthy smile before porcelain veneers are placed.
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin shells of ceramic that are custom made to bond over the front surfaces of teeth. Some preparation is necessary and requires the removal of tooth enamel. This is minor and helps avoid adding bulk when the veneers are placed. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat can speak with patients during their initial consultation appointment about what to expect before, during, and after the placement of veneers, as well as methods of maintaining their restorations for many years to come!
