While porcelain veneers can be used as a treatment by themselves, they are frequently used as part of a more comprehensive smile makeover plan. Indeed, they often form the foundation of a smile makeover, with the front, most visible teeth being fitted with veneers while surrounding teeth are treated with dental crowns, teeth whitening, and other cosmetic options. Porcelain veneers are also often used as the finishing touch after a patient has undergone Invisalign® treatment to address orthodontic issues.
Because porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant and do not respond to teeth whitening treatments, many patients elect to undergo teeth whitening before having their veneers placed. They then have their veneers colored to match their newly whitened teeth.
Dr. Parshin can discuss your smile makeover options with you during your confidential, one-on-one consultation if you are interested in rejuvenating your entire mouth.
