Porcelain Veneers are hand crafted, artistically designed custom thin porcelain layers that are bonded on the front surface of the teeth to create straight, healthy looking beautiful covering for individual teeth.
Porcelain veneers are very strong and they look very natural with a similar texture and translucency like your tooth enamel. They can be a permanent solution to most cosmetic problems, they will successfully treat:
- Gaps (to close the space between teeth)
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth due to tetracycline medication, excessive fluoride, or other factors.
- Excessively small or large teeth.
- Straighten misaligned or crooked teeth.
Worn out teeth
It is usually a two visits procedure. During the first visit the dentist removes about 1/2 millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface, which is an amount nearly equal to the thickness of the veneer to be added to the tooth surface. The dentist takes an impression, which is sent to our highly qualified technicians who design the Custom Veneers. It usually takes 7-10 days for the Veneers to be back. During this period the patient wears temporary Veneers that are custom crafted by the dentist or the assistant.
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 with top of the line, very strong bonding cement, leaving you with a beautifully restored smile.
