One cosmetic dental treatment option we can use is called porcelain veneers. These veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that are adhered to the front of your teeth. These veneers allow us to improve the shape, size, durability, functionality and the color of your teeth. This particular treatment option is highly sought after simply because of the amazing transformative results they can produce.

What is the process like for getting porcelain veneers?

What is the process like for getting porcelain veneers?

To prepare the teeth for the veneers, the teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer. Usually, about half a millimeter of the tooth is removed, which may require a local anesthetic. A mold is taken of the teeth, which is sent to the laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers.

When your ceramic veneers are ready, the dentist places each veneer on the teeth to check their fit and get a sense of the shade or color. While the veneers are resting on your teeth, view the results, and pay particular attention to the color. At this point, the color of the veneers can still be adjusted with the shade of the cement to be used.

Veneers are reasonable facsimiles of natural teeth, not perfect replacements. It’s not uncommon to see slight variations in the color of veneers upon close inspection, as this occurs even in natural teeth. Nevertheless, this procedure can greatly enhance your smile and can heighten self-esteem.

  • They are so compassionate. I usually hate going to the dentist, its always a scary thing for me. Anxiety sets in and I usually chicken out and not go. Glad I didn't this time. They are so patient and very thorough in explaining everything to you. I would definitely recommend them highly.
