This is a common question that we get at the office. Porcelain veneers are often used in smile makeovers. With Porcelain Veneers you can change the shape and color of teeth. Spaces or gaps can be closed, the possibilities are almost endless! They are mainly considered a cosmetic procedure and dental insurance frequently does not cover the service.
Frequently, the upper front teeth from premolar to premolar are included in the smile makeover. The teeth are carefully prepared and molds are made of the teeth. Then, the master ceramist fabricates the porcelain veneers and they are returned to the dentist for approval. Upon approval by the dentist and the patient they are bonded in place.
When done well, they can last a very long time. For examples of some of our cosmetic work go to http://www.triaddentistry.com/before-and-after.php
