Porcelain veneers can dramatically improve a smile. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth.
They are natural-looking, and they can change the shape, color and alignment of your teeth. In other words, veneers are used to improve the aesthetic appearance of teeth, to eliminate the gaps between teeth, or address the problems of a "gummy"smile as well as short or small teeth. They can often be used as an alternative to correcting misaligned teeth with lengthy orthodontic methods.
The first step toward cosmetic enhancement with porcelain veneers is to meet with us to discuss your goals and expectations for your smile. At this time, a doctor will consult with you about porcelain veneers and inform you of what you can expect from the veneer procedure.
For your second office visit, your teeth will be prepared for the veneers. By gently buffing your teeth's front surface, the doctor will take off a small amount of enamel from your teeth. The thin porcelain veneers will eventually take the place of this removed enamel. A mold is then crafted from your teeth and from this your porcelain veneers will be custom constructed.
During the third and last visit for the procedure, the veneers are placed on your teeth. The doctor will match the color of the veneers to your surrounding teeth. A special light is used to finish the process.
