Desert Dental Alternatives treats patients with porcelain veneers because they fight off stains better than resin veneers and complement your teeth’s natural coloring. Porcelain veneers are thin and durable shells that bond to your teeth to improve their appearance, and they’re one of the most versatile cosmetic treatments available! With the help of technicians at our partner lab, our dentists will customize your veneers so you can enjoy the smile you’ve always wanted.
How to Know if Porcelain Veneers are for You
Porcelain veneers are versatile because they can treat patients who have teeth that are:
- Discolored for multiple reasons, like root canal treatment or excessive fluoride
- Worn down
- Broken or chipped
Patients with gaps between their teeth also benefit from porcelain veneers because they fill in those gaps and give them their full smile back!
Porcelain Veneers’ Treatment Process
During your initial consultation, you can share why you’re considering porcelain veneers with your dentist, who will examine your teeth to see if they’re right for you. This may require an X-ray of your teeth. Your dentist will also describe the treatment to you, such as the preparation and applying processes.
You’ll likely visit Desert Dental Alternatives two more times after your consultation. When you come in for the second time, your dentist will make your veneers, and they’ll apply them during your third visit. After that, you’ll have a brand new smile to enjoy!
Do Porcelain Veneers Last Forever?
The lifespan of porcelain veneers is 7 to 15 years. If you’re not ready for your veneers to go after their time is up, your dentist will be happy to reapply them!
Before you decide if you want to proceed with porcelain veneers, keep in mind our dentists can’t undo the process. Once they’re on, they’ll be there until the end of their lifespan.
