Porcelain Veneers With Cosmetic Dentistry
Veneers are custom made, thin pieces of porcelain that are shaped to look just like the actual tooth. Made in a professional dental laboratory, the durable veneers are customized to match up with both the shape and color of the patient's teeth. Each veneer is bonded on the front portion of the tooth to create an attractive and healthy smile.
Veneers have the ability to completely reshape both your teeth and your smile and can often be a good alternative to crowns or other dental conditions.
With most of the dental restorations that are available, veneers are not a permanent solution and some people may have to have them replaced. They are very durable, however, and they can last for many years to give a beautiful smile.
For the first step, you will have a one on one consultation with the dentist. At this time, you will be able to discuss your needs as well as your goals and undergo an evaluation to see if porcelain veneers are the right choice to give you the desired look.
Reasons For Getting Porcelain Veneers
- Cosmetically create a white, uniformed and beautiful smile
- Teeth that are too large or too small
- Misshapen or crooked teeth
- Severely stained or discolored teeth
- Uneven or unwanted spaces
- Chipped or worn teeth
Getting veneers put on will usually require at least two visits, most of the time with little or no anesthesia for the procedure. The teeth are lightly buffed and shaped on the surface to prepare them for the actual veneer thickness. A mold is then taken of the teeth and a shade is chosen by you, with the guidance of your dentist.
For the second visit, the teeth are cleaned with liquids that allow for a durable bond. The bonding cement is then placed between the veneer and the tooth, then a special light is used to set and harden the bond.
When all is said and done, you will be able to brush and floss your teeth as normal, along with special instructions from your dentist on the care of your new smile.
