About Porcelain Veneers – Birmingham

About Porcelain Veneers

One of the most popular, effective, and versatile treatment options in cosmetic dentistry today is porcelain veneers. There are many patients throughout the greater Birmingham area who come to Maniscalco Cosmetic Dentistry asking specifically for porcelain veneers. Dr. Michael Maniscalco can address any concerns about porcelain veneers in great detail during a consultation, but we’d like to take a moment right now to give you a basic understanding about what porcelain veneers are and what they can achieve.

The Basics: What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells made out of a special dental ceramic. The porcelain veneers are affixed to the front facing portions of your teeth in order to mask various dental problems. When in place, porcelain veneers look completely natural.

Dental Problems Porcelain Veneers Can Address

Porcelain veneers fix many dental problems, including major dental stains, minor chips and cracks, and mild unevenness or misalignment of the teeth. It’s for this reason that porcelain veneers are often used in smile makeover treatments.

Good Candidates for Porcelain Veneers

About Porcelain Veneers

The best candidates for porcelain veneers are patients who are generally in good dental health and have teeth that are healthy despite any minor dental damage that needs to be addressed. When you meet with Dr. Maniscalco and the team here at our practice serving the greater Birmingham area, we’ll tell you if porcelain veneers are the best option for you.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

There are many great benefits to getting porcelain veneers. First and foremost is their versatility and effectiveness for addressing multiple dental problems. Another great advantage is that porcelain veneers are semi-translucent and react to natural and artificial light much like normal teeth. When you have porcelain veneers, the look is so natural that no one will realize that they are there.

The Process for Placing Porcelain Veneers

Getting porcelain veneers placed is a three-step process. After Dr. Maniscalco determines that porcelain veneers are right for you, your tooth will be prepped for the porcelain veneer and impressions will be taken of the tooth. Temporary veneers will be placed as the permanent veneers are fashioned in a dental lab. You will receive the final porcelain veneers roughly two weeks later, and Dr. Maniscalco will place and adjust them as needed.

Taking Care of Your Porcelain Veneers
