Porcelain Veneers FAQ Buckhead
re there special care instructions to keep porcelain veneers looking great?
You may have a tendency to treat your veneered teeth with caution in order to prevent chipping or breaking. However, porcelain veneers are strongly bonded to your enamel, which creates a functional tooth that is many times stronger than the porcelain material by itself. You can avoid certain candies and tough foods – basically, any substance that is not good for natural teeth will not be recommended for porcelain veneers, either. Do keep up with a regular home routine to keep veneered teeth looking and functioning their best.
Am I a candidate for porcelain veneers?
We cannot recommend one particular treatment over another until we do a comprehensive evaluation. If you have any one of these tooth problems, however, porcelain veneers may be your ideal solution:
- Chipped, cracked or broken teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Grooved or worn teeth
- Short or oddly shaped teeth
- Crooked teeth
Is the porcelain veneer placement process painful?
No – You are given local anesthesia to numb the area in the same manor you would to have a filling placed. Dr. Tekin likes to say, "I’ll have you so numb, you won’t care what I’m doing!" Profound anesthesia is very important to Dr. Tekin – perhaps because he is the son of an anesthesiologist. Keep in mind, porcelain veneers are one of the least invasive dental procedures done today. Your comfort is a priority at Art of the Smile.
