Do Porcelain Veneers Require Tooth Reduction?
Nobody wants to deal with drilling. For anxious patients, the shots of anesthesia, the sights and sounds of the drill, and the following healing time aren’t necessarily worth the results of treatment. Veneers allow us to make the kind of subtle, unique changes you’re hoping for, without taking off big chunks of your natural teeth.
Why are porcelain veneers so low on tooth prep? Because they’re incredibly thin. The restorations fit over your natural teeth, without requiring that you have significant portions of your teeth removed. This not only speeds up the procedure, it reduces the need for anesthesia, and gets you back to your regular life as soon as possible.
The ceramic material also allows for a wide variety of characteristics. No matter what you’re hoping to change about your smile, we’ll find a way to bring that concept into reality. As you can see with our patient pictured above, veneers can straighten, lengthen, whiten, reshape, resize, and more. We’ll be able to make recommendations once we see your smile for ourselves.
