What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers in Bloomington are custom dental restorations that are handcrafted in a dental lab by highly skilled ceramists. They are made of ultra-thin layers of durable dental porcelain that are permanently bonded to the front-facing surfaces of your teeth to mask flaws in shape, size, and color. Once they’re attached to your teeth, porcelain veneers can give you a flawless, movie star smile that lasts for up to a decade or even longer.

What Is the Porcelain Veneers Procedure Like?

After the initial consultation, getting veneers placed takes just two appointments. During the first visit, Dr. Barco will remove a small portion of surface tooth enamel to ensure the veneers lay flush against your teeth and don’t bulge out in your smile. Then, we will take impressions of your unique bite and send those off to the dental lab. While your new smile is being crafted, we’ll affix you with temporary veneers to let you get adjusted to the way they feel in your mouth. After a few weeks, your permanent veneers will be ready. We’ll give you a call to let you know when you can come in and utterly transform your smile!

What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

The biggest advantage of veneers is their versatility. As mentioned earlier, they can correct all kinds of cosmetic imperfections in your teeth. In fact, they have often been called “instant orthodontics” because they can even fix slightly crooked or rotated teeth. Once they have been bonded to your pearly whites, veneers can last up to 10 years with very little maintenance beyond your daily brushing and flossing.

Veneers are also highly resistant to staining, much more so than your tooth enamel. Your love of coffee, tea, wine, or berries won’t discolor your grin nearly as easily as it would your natural teeth. You can enjoy those items to your heart’s content. Just remember to brush your teeth afterwards!
