Porcelain Veneers

Dental flaws such as gaps, stains, and chips can have a major impact on your smile.

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to hide imperfections.

Serving the greater Harrisonburg, VA, area, the team at Smiles for Life can improve the appearance of your smile with porcelain veneers.

The Treatment Process

Traditional porcelain veneers have been used as a trusted cosmetic solution for millions of patients. Patients from the greater Harrisonburg area can expect the following during this treatment process:

Enamel Removal

During your first visit, we will carefully remove a small amount of enamel from the front of each tooth you wish to treat. This step is performed to create an ideal bonding surface and help the veneers look more natural.

Impressions

Next, we will take detailed impressions of your reshaped teeth. We may use traditional or digital impressions, or a combination of both.

Fabrication

These impressions will be sent to an advanced dental laboratory, where master ceramists will fabricate your veneers. This process typically takes about two to four weeks.

Placement

Once your veneers are ready, you will return to our practice to have them bonded securely in place to each tooth, instantly enhancing the aesthetics of your smile.

Minimum-Prep Veneers

Minimum-prep veneers are much thinner than traditional types, so they can be placed with little or no reshaping of the treated tooth. Despite their thin size, they are still highly durable. Like traditional veneers, minimum-prep veneers will be created at our trusted partner lab in order to achieve the most natural-looking results possible. However, minimum-prep veneers cannot address all of the same concerns as traditional types. Patients from the greater Harrisonburg area can schedule a personal consultation so we can review the unique benefits of each type and determine which option is right for you.

How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?

Dental veneers are highly durable, and they can last for 15 years or more with proper care.

Maintaining Your Veneers

Dental veneers are durable and stain-resistant, but patients still need to practice good aftercare to make their veneers last as long as possible.

Brush and Floss

Brush twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Gel toothpastes are typically a good choice for porcelain veneers. Floss daily. Good oral health will keep the veneers looking pristine, and prevent dental health issues and tooth discoloration.

Avoid Bad Dental Habits

Habits like biting on your fingernails, using your teeth as tools, and excessive clenching and grinding can damage your veneers or cause them to become detached.

See the Dentist Regularly

Visit the dentist every six months, as recommended by the American Dental Association, to have your teeth professionally cleaned and examined. During the appointment, we can also check the condition of the veneers.

Thanks for the personal care from all the staff, nurses, and Dr. Joe McIntyre. They walked me through the whole process. Everything went smoothly. They made themselves available in the evening so I did not have to miss any work for my dental implant treatment.

It’s not much but I would recommend Dr. Joe McIntyre to anyone who is in need of oral surgery or dental implant procedures. His staff was very professional and he took the time to explain the procedure during my consultation.
