Porcelain veneers are super thin, translucent shells of porcelain that are permanently bonded to the front of teeth. Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment and correct a number of aesthetic and functional dental concerns.
Porcelain veneers may be used to:
- Close gaps or spaces between teeth
- Repair broken or chipped teeth
- Correct discoloration on teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked or uneven teeth
Advances in materials make today’s porcelain veneers look and feel more like natural teeth. The dental porcelain that is used to create these cosmetic restorations is very fine and reflects the light just as natural tooth enamel.
Our dentists use very conservative methods for preparing the teeth to remove as little of the natural tooth as possible. We work with sophisticated dental laboratories and expert ceramists to ensure that our porcelain veneers are of the highest quality.
The process for porcelain veneers takes place over several visits. For your initial visit, you will be given a comprehensive examination to review your medical and dental history, discuss your cosmetic dentistry goals, check your teeth for decay, screen for oral cancer and periodontal disease and take necessary diagnostic x-rays. A consultation appointment will take place next to discuss our findings and outline the recommended treatment plan as well as the time and cost of porcelain veneers.
Our dentists can fit you for temporary veneers so that you can have an opportunity to “try on” your proposed treatment and make sure they are exactly what you had in mind. Impressions are made to create a perfect fit for your porcelain veneers. Your final restorations will be tinted to match your natural teeth. The porcelain veneers will be permanently bonded to the front of your teeth for beautiful and natural looking results.
It is important that you maintain an oral health routine that includes professional cleanings and visits to our office to ensure that your porcelain veneers will continue to look beautiful. Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains from food and drink so you can be sure your smile will remain youthful and bright.
