Do you have an unsightly chip, crack, stain or gap in your teeth? If so, a great solution through cosmetic dentistry may be porcelain veneers or porcelain laminates.
What are veneers?
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that are custom-fit to match your teeth’s size, shape, color, and overall appearance. They match your teeth perfectly to give you a great smile. They have gained popularity as a great cosmetic dental treatment in recent years.
While resin veneers are also available, they are not as durable or stain-resistant as porcelain and are only very rarely recommended by dentists.
Do veneers look like natural teeth?
It is almost impossible to tell that veneers are not your natural teeth. In addition, they are highly resistant to stains that result from tea, coffee, and even smoking. they are color-matched and custom-made to blend in perfectly with your existing teeth. Once they are in place and adjusted, they appear just like your natural teeth, giving you a complete and great smile.
What is the procedure to get veneers?
Getting your custom-fitted porcelain veneers is an easy, quick two-appointment procedure.
At your first appointment, we remove a thin layer of enamel from the top level of your teeth. This step helps the veneers bond evenly to the surface so they look and feel natural, and also creates a template for our lab to create perfectly fitted-veneers.
Then, we take impressions of your teeth so we can fit you with a temporary veneer made in our in-house lab.
Once we receive your permanent veneers from the lab, we’ll bring you back into our office to fit and bond them onto your teeth, giving you an instant improvement in your smile!
Veneers are a great way to correct dental imperfections that cause you distress.
How do I know if veneers are right for me?
When you come in for your appointment, our dentists will give you a thorough exam. We’ll discuss your goals with you and recommend the right procedures to fit your needs.
