Are Porcelain Veneers the Best Choice for You?

Your smile says a lot about you and how you perceive yourself as an individual. Porcelain veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile if it is lacking due to stains, blemishes, or damaged teeth. Cosmetic veneers conceal flaws like chips, stains, cracks, and gaps in your teeth to make your smile appear more uniform, attractive, and appealing. A visit to Dr. Richard D. Weigand in Spokane, Washington, can determine if you’re a viable candidate for veneer treatment.

Types of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers aren’t “one size fits all.” They come in different types and brands to suit personal preference and need. Some popular types include:

  • Traditional veneers – are thin porcelain shells custom designed to fit on the front of your teeth. These veneers are a two-appointment procedure and are customized to match your smile.
  • Empress and Emax veneers: Empress and Emax veneers are strong and translucent, giving you a polished look that closely resembles your natural teeth. 
  • Lumineers: Despite their ultra-thin composition, Lumineers are incredibly sturdy. Lumineers require little to no preparation for their application.

Veneers provided at Richard D. Weigand, DDS

Dr. Weigand provides translucent conventional veneers that match the color, shape, and appearance of your natural teeth. During your first visit, he will prepare your teeth by shaving the tooth that is receiving the veneer and then make models of the prepared teeth. These are then sent to a dental ceramist to create your custom-designed veneers. Once the veneers are ready, you will return when Dr. Weigand checks their fit and bonds them to the front of your tooth.  

Do Veneers Damage Teeth?

Porcelain veneers enhance your smile without posing a risk to the health or structure of your teeth. Porcelain material is non-toxic and biocompatible and will not harm your system. In fact, porcelain veneers can strengthen your teeth’ structure while improving their appearance.
