Dental veneers are thin custom made shells that cover the front surface of your tooth to improve their appearance. They are made of tooth colored materials and can be used to improve the color of teeth that have been worn down or stained. Alternatively, they can be used to improve the shape or size of the tooth.

A porcelain veneers or dental veneers are a thin layer of porcelain placed over top of a tooth to either improve its aesthetic appearance, or to protect the surface of a damaged tooth. Porcelain veneers or dental veneers carry with them many advantages:

  • The dentist does not have to remove as much tooth structure to apply porcelain dental veneers.
  • They can be used to correct color and shape.
  • They are difficult to stain.
  • They can close unsightly gaps between teeth or correct rotated teeth.
  • In some cases porcelain dental veneers can be used to improve a person’s bite.
  • They have a natural look and feel.
  • They are strong and durable.
  • When done correctly, porcelain veneers can last for years ensuring you a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
 

Porcelain veneers or laminates are a viable option for an individual whose teeth may be chipped, stained, discolored, crooked, unevenly spaced, or misshapen, and even for someone who struggles with embracing his/her own smile.

Dental veneers have many advantages. Our dentist can select a shade of porcelain or resin that will match that of your teeth, so your veneers will look natural. Our dentist can even select veneer shade that will lighten the color of your teeth. Gum tissues tolerate porcelain veneers well, so there will be no discomfort after placement. Veneers made from porcelain are stain resistant. Veneers are a conservative option for patients who wish to improve the appearance of their smile. They do not require as much tooth enamel removal as dental crowns do. Veneers are stronger and more aesthetic than dental crowns.

 

Dental Veneers are done in three easy steps:

 

  • On your very first visit, the Dentist might give you a freezing (called a local anesthetic). He/she then removes part of the enamel from your teeth to make room for the dental veneers. The dentist then makes a mold (or an impression) of the teeth. The impression is sent to a dental lab, where the veneers are then custom-made.
  • On the next visit, the Dentist puts a mild chemical on the teeth to make them a little rougher, this helps the veneers stick better to the teeth.
  • Then the veneers are attached to the teeth, one by one, using the composite resin cement.
