Drs. Robert Gemmell and Ty Jaros at Distinctive Dentistry of Eugene, Oregon, often use porcelain veneers to give patients beautiful smiles. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental-grade ceramic material that are custom-crafted and bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They can correct various esthetic issues such as chips, discoloration, gaps between teeth, or misaligned teeth. The result is a natural-looking, long-lasting smile that you’ll love!
Our porcelain veneers can last 10 years or even longer with proper care and maintenance. Your dentist at Distinctive Dentistry will guide you on how to best care for your veneers so they look their best throughout the years. Prevent staining your veneers by avoiding foods and drinks that are dark in color, and reduce the risk of breakage by protecting your smile with mouth guards if you have conditions such as bruxism (clenching and grinding of the teeth). Routine visits to our practice allow us to monitor for any signs of dental issues underneath the veneer or other conditions like periodontal disease that can put your smile at risk of serious problems.
First, a consultation appointment is required to discuss your esthetic concerns and determine if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Our dentists will take digital X-rays and photos of your smile and take an impression of your teeth. Our skilled dental lab team will create the perfect-fit veneers based on these impressions. On the day of your procedure, we use special tools to prepare the tooth surface so that it can securely bond with the veneer. Once all preparations are complete, we carefully bond each veneer in place and check for proper bite function before you leave our office with a beautiful new smile!
