Porcelain Veneers

At Galan Dental, we offer patients with the opportunity to replace their broken or chipped teeth with enamel mimicking appliances such as Veneers. The shell-like texture of this appliance will camouflage the color of the teeth. It offers patients with a completely new alternative to extractions where the patient may have to get rid of the teeth. Dental Veneers can be developed in order to correctly fit the individual’s teeth. When it comes to their composition, veneers can be fabricated using different materials. They can be plastic, resin, or even porcelain.  A commonly used veneer is the Porcelain Veneer.

Why should I use Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain known for its ceramic texture and durability, can provide a natural look and feel to the teeth. The porcelain veneers are engineered into the shape of the teeth that is quite thin and yet very durable. It is a widely used cosmetic dentistry solution which will help improve the form and aesthetics of the teeth giving it a healthy look.

An instant solution to smile rejuvenation, porcelain veneers can cover single teeth or a set of teeth. This efficient and proven procedure is widely sought after for many reasons.

  • Porcelain veneers resolve the problems of malocclusions.

  • They remove unnecessary gaps between spaces resulting in a perfect smile.

  • This cosmetic solution can help to get rid of hard stains and discoloration.

  • It can resolve teeth irregularities.

  • It can hide chipped or slightly cracked teeth.


What is the procedure involved in getting Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers can be inserted into three visits to the dentist. The initial visit will involve taking impressions of the teeth. With an in-depth study of the impression, the dentist will send them to the lab where the technicians will work on developing the patient’s permanent veneers. In order to place veneers on the teeth, it is required that a sufficient amount of enamel is removed from the front side of the teeth.  As the porcelain veneers are getting ready, the patient will be asked to wear temporary veneers.

As the permanent veneers are ready to wear, the dentist will re-check the shape, color, and exact fit of the veneers to ensure that they can be properly inserted. A few adjustments will be made to enhance the smile.

How can I take care of my veneers?

Once the veneers are on, it is vital to have them maintained in order to have lasting results. We encourage patients to keep a few tips in mind in order to take care of their veneers.

  • Porcelain veneers are known for their durability, smooth texture and form. It is important to ensure that they are properly maintained with regular brushing and flossing.

  • Patients are advised to wear night guards in case they have the habit of clenching their teeth.

  • We recommend to mildly cut down food that is hard to bite during the initial days just to ensure that your veneers blends into your existing teeth.

  • It is suggested to avoid food that may lead to staining of the teeth during the initial months of having the veneers.
