Porcelain veneers are extremely thin coverings of ceramic that are bonded to the tooth’s surface to create a an aesthetically pleasing smile.
Veneers can fix a variety of cosmetic dental problems such as:
Teeth that are too large.
Teeth that are too small.
Slightly discolored teeth.
When cared for properly, your veneers will last up to 10 years.
For many patients, teeth may have chipped, become discolored or are slightly crooked. For the majority of these patients, porcelain veneers can prove to be the perfect solution. Unfortunately, too many veneers have been placed poorly leading people to think that they look fake.
We pay close attention when placing porcelain veneers to the patients surrounding teeth and gums in order to design each veneer to complement the overall smile. The result is a beautiful, attractive new smile.
The veneers procedure begins with the preparation of the tooth. This entails removing the discolored or unsightly portion of the tooth and precisely shaping the tooth so the veneer can fit properly.
Once the tooth is shaped, it will be scanned. This digital image will be emailed to the lab to craft your new restoration.
While the new veneers are created, we will provide you with a temporary restoration. Our temporary restorations will resemble your natural teeth so that you can continue with your daily life without worrying about a missing or incompatible tooth.
During your second visit to the office, we will place the final restoration. The veneers will be fitted comfortably into the mouth and feel exactly like your natural teeth.
The final step in the process is to bond the new veneers into your mouth, leaving you with a beautiful smile.
