Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of tooth-colored porcelain materials that adhere to the front surfaces of your teeth.
They’re used on the front teeth – the ones that are visible when smiling – (The critical cosmetic zone) to correct issues like cracks, chips, uneven edges, stains, discolorations, gaps between teeth, teeth that appear “too small” in relation to other teeth (sometimes referred to as a “gummy smile”), rotated and malposed teeth
The application of a veneer typically takes two visits. Veneers are thin (1.5mm thick) but they still take up some room on the surface of the tooth. During the first visit, a small amount of your natural tooth material will be removed to allow room for the veneer so it doesn’t overlap the teeth on either side.
An impression of the tooth will be made and sent to the lab where the veneer will be fabricated. In our advanced office, we use 3D digital imaging instead of impressions which makes our patients all the more comfortable.
A temporary veneer will be placed on the tooth to protect it while your permanent veneer is being made. At the second visit, the temporary veneer will be removed and the permanent veneer will be adhered to the tooth surface using a very strong bonding agent. Then the veneer will be gently buffed so it looks and feels completely natural
Though both composite and porcelain veneers can repair the damage to teeth, however, due to material limitations composite (or bonding) is not recommended if your goal is to transform your smile.
Composite bonding is a porous material, which means over time it will change the color, getting yellow or gray. If you drink tea, coffee, red wine or any other colored beverages on regular basis it will happen even sooner. When a small composite filling has been placed the change in color is not as noticeable.
However, the larger the surface of the restoration the more visible it is. In the case of dental veneers, the entire front surface of the tooth is covered so the color change will be quite noticeable right next to the tooth that was not restored with a veneer.
Once veneers are placed in our office, the patient’s smile literally lights up the room.
Patients exhibit great joy. Their self-esteem and self-confidence are immediately improved. We have been told stories where people have gotten promotions, became engaged, and started working out and eating healthy. All because of our veneer, smile makeover. These are the moments that make a dentist smile as brightly as his patients’.
