Porcelain veneers are extremely thin casings of ceramic that
are bonded to the front of the patients? tooth to create a new
smile. Porcelain veneers are placed over the front of teeth that
appear too small or large, slightly discolored, or simply are
not cosmetically pleasing to the patient. 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.
When placing porcelain veneers, we pay close attention to the
patients surrounding teeth and design each veneer to complement
the overall smile. The result is a beautiful, attractive new smile.
If cared for properly, your veneers will last you a long time.
We ensure that your new veneers are constructed of the most durable
porcelain materials available.
The procedure begins with the preparation of the tooth. This
entails removing the discolored or unsightly portion of the tooth
and meticulously shaping the tooth in preparation for the new
veneer. Once we have shaped the tooth, we will take an impression.
This impression will be sent to our lab where your new restoration
will be crafted. 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 proceed with
the placement of your final restoration. The veneers will be fitted
comfortably into the mouth. We will make every effort to ensure
that the new tooth feels exactly like one of your natural teeth.
The final step in the process will be to bond the new veneers
into your mouth, leaving you with a beautifully restored smile.
