Porcelain Veneer FAQs

Naples LVI trained dentist serving Bonita Springs, Cape Coral, and Marco Island

What are the benefits of choosing porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a great alternative to more invasive cosmetic dentistry procedures.  They preserve more enamel than other options and provide a natural appearance with little alteration.  Porcelain veneers are popular because they can be placed to correct a number of tooth problems, including chips, cracks, spaces, and discoloration.  By using porcelain to create the veneers, the final result is a stronger, more natural-looking restoration.  Porcelain veneers can change a smile in as little as two visits versus one to two years for orthodontics.

What should I do if my porcelain veneer breaks or comes loose?
A porcelain veneer coming loose is a rare occurrence because they are bonded for permanent placement.  If, however, a portion or all of the porcelain veneer dislodges, make sure you hold onto the piece or pieces. Place the veneer in a safe place, and make an appointment to see Dr. Massa as soon as possible.  Make sure you let the receptionist know why you are calling.   Dr. Massa will take a look at the remnant and see if another porcelain veneer needs to be created. 

How should I care for my new porcelain veneers?
While porcelain veneers are quite durable, they are not immune to damage.  Keep them clean just as you do your other teeth, and floss normally.  Non-abrasive toothpaste is best.  Do not attempt to use your veneered teeth to bite down on excessively hard foods, to bite fingernails or to open items.  Try not to clench or grind with your veneered teeth as well.  Overall, treat them with care and try to protect them from injury or damage as best you can. 

Will my veneers stay the shade of white I choose?
Your porcelain veneers will be crafted to match the current shade of your teeth, or the lighter shade of your smile makeover.  Fortunately, your porcelain veneers are stain resistant just like your natural teeth.
