Porcelain Veneers Q & A

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are custom-made materials matched to the exact shade of your teeth to hide imperfections. The thin covers are used to correct broken or chipped teeth, conceal gaps or stains, and address other cosmetic dental concerns.

How do porcelain veneers work?

Porcelain veneers work to fix the appearance of misaligned, stained, or damaged teeth and to restore teeth back to their natural radiance.

The process consists of simply applying the “shell” like veneer to the front of the tooth where it is securely fused. The veneer is made of porcelain, which makes it look and feel like a natural tooth.

Dr. Swaintek-Lamb provides a thorough examination to customize the shape and color of your porcelain veneers to perfectly match your smile. Teeth can also be whitened as a part of this process, to reveal an overall whiter smile with the veneers matching your newly whitened teeth.

What are the advantages of porcelain veneers?

There are several advantages to porcelain veneers, making them the preferred method by both doctors and patients for correcting minor cosmetic issues. Porcelain veneers are less invasive as opposed to dental crowns, implants, or other alternatives. Patients choose porcelain veneers over other options because:

  • They’re the easiest method of fixing chipped or broken teeth
  • Can be applied to one or multiple teeth
  • Minimally invasive application
  • Fast and customized to your needs
  • Evenly shaped and sized for a perfectly aligned smile and bite
  • Fix overall health and stability of a tooth or teeth
  • Provide a whiter, brighter smile

Porcelain veneers are typically used to conceal minor cosmetic concerns. If a significant portion of your teeth is in need of restoration, Dr. Swaintek-Lamb recommends a full mouth rehabilitation procedure.

A full mouth rehabilitation optimizes the health of the entire mouth, including teeth and gums. The procedure entails restoring gums, teeth, coloration, and more.

Full mouth rehabilitation is highly customized to your individual oral care needs. Using advanced technology, Dr. Swaintek-Lamb can do a full mouth rehab, which is basically four appointments consolidated into one visit.

If you have concerns about the shape, size, color, or health of your teeth, Dr. Swaintek-Lamb can help. Call or book online to schedule a consultation to start customizing your oral health plan.
