A PICTURE PERFECT SMILE WITH
Porcelain Dental Veneers
Veneers are an ideal cosmetic solution for everyone who desires a beautiful smile with minimal invasions into their teeth.
We can improve your facial appearance and boost your confidence with dental veneers by hiding your natural teeth behind a very thin layer of porcelain. Veneers can be used to change the shape, size, color and symmetry of the teeth and smile.
Porcelain veneers are a rapid, aesthetic, and safe way to correct unattractive front teeth. Porcelain veneers correct heavy permanent stains, teeth that are crooked, disproportionate, small (with spaces), and structurally damaged
Porcelain veneers are shells of ceramic material that can be chemically bonded to tooth structure. Porcelain veneers are the primary treatment modality for the popular extreme makeovers.
One of the most significant breakthroughs in dentistry has been the development of new adhesion techniques and materials that enable the dentist to successfully adhere dissimilar materials to each other.
The bonding strength between a porcelain veneer and the tooth surface is often so great that a trauma may cause a fracture within the tooth and not at the interface between the porcelain veneer and the tooth surface.
Bonded to tooth structure, certain porcelain veneer materials display similar physical properties as natural enamel. In addition, with the advance of ceramic technology, natural layers and translucencies of vital teeth can be perfectly mimicked.
The correction of unattractive front teeth with porcelain veneers involves two office visits. The first visit entails the preparation of the teeth, taking impressions of the prepared teeth, and the placement of temporary acrylic veneers. The processing time at the dental laboratory is usually two weeks. The final porcelain veneers are permanently bonded at the second office visit.
Some dentists place dental veneers that consist of resin composite. However, the long-term prognosis of porcelain veneers is much better.
