Porcelain Veneers – Teeth Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded to the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions. Veneers are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long-lasting smile. Nevertheless, they may eventually need replacement.

Reasons for Porcelain Veneers:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
  • Crooked teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Severely discolored or stained teeth.
  • Teeth that are too small or large.
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces.
  • Worn or chipped teeth.

What Does Getting Porcelain Veneers Involve?

Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. Our dentists take a mold or impression of your teeth and help you choose a shade or color for the implant.

On the second visit, the dentists will clean your teeth with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Next, the cosmetic dentist places bonding cement between the tooth and veneer and then uses a special light beam to harden and set the bond.

You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
