WHAT ARE VENEERS?
The veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size or length in order to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS & PROCEDURE FOR GETTING PORCELAIN VENEERS?
During your consultation, your doctor takes the time to understand the unique personality of each patient, in addition to learning all about your particular concerns. By using the information they gather and performing a comprehensive smile analysis, we are able to determine the most appropriate strategy for smile enhancement.
Your consultation will begin by evaluating your smile and model your bite before sending this mold to the lab. The veneers are customized to fit the exact specifications of your teeth.
Once the veneers are complete, the process is finalized by adhering them to the surface of the teeth. This process requires the removal of a small amount of enamel to accommodate the shells, however, having veneers bonded is a painless dental procedure is done with minimal tooth preparation. In fact, many veneer procedures can be done with the use of little or no local anesthetic. Applying veneers does not require any drilling in order to remove tooth structure.

WHAT OTHER DENTAL PROBLEMS CAN PORCELAIN VENEERS HELP WITH?
If your teeth are too short, and reshaping your gums is not a helpful option, we might suggest the use of porcelain veneers to give you the appearance of normal-length teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are fitted over your teeth. A small portion of your original tooth is buffed to make room for the veneer covers, cast a mold of your teeth, and send this new mold to a dental laboratory. Once and the lab, the technicians will create your personalized veneers and send them back to our office to cement to your teeth. Patients also love the fact that veneers can change the shade of your smile too!
