Uses for porcelain veneers are many, including the correction of:

  • worn and dull enamel
  • discolored enamel, stained by soft drinks, coffee, tea, smoking, or certain medications
  • natural or inherited unattractive enamel
  • wear and tear which occur with age, such as chips, cracks, and grinding causing uneven wear
  • abnormal spacing between teeth, which may be present at birth and widen with age
  • uneven alignment
  • tooth to gum ratio
  • tooth length

Porcelain veneers can be thought of as “conservative crowns.” They change the visible characteristics of teeth, rather than crowns, which encase entire teeth. Veneers can permanently alter teeth while preserving more of the natural tooth structure,compared to crowns that require removal of more enamel. Porcelain mimics tooth structure and appearance better than any other restorative material. It’s harder than enamel and resists staining better than enamel. It rarely discolors, unless the surface of the veneer has been damaged.

Key benefits of using veneers include:

  1. Mimicking the tooth structure and appearance better than any other restorative material.
  2. Resisting staining better than enamel.
  3. Rarely discoloring, unless the surface of the veneer has been damaged.

Veneers Procedure with Dr. Barsky

After you and Dr. Barsky have decided that porcelain veneers are the right option to meet your goals, there is some tooth preparation that may include a local anesthetic for your comfort during the procedure. To start, a small amount of the front surface of the tooth is removed (about the thickness of a fingernail), to allow space for the porcelain.

Then the dentist makes impressions are made of the teeth. The impressions will be used by a laboratory to fabricate your veneers. Very rarely, no tooth preparation is needed, but only in carefully selected cases.  apply  Then temporary veneers are applied while your porcelain veneers are being prepared made, which usually takes about a week.
