Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.

Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.

As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.

USES FOR PORCELAIN VENEERS:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
  • Align crooked teeth.
  • Improve misshapen teeth.
  • Correct severely discolored or stained teeth.
  • Correct teeth that are too small or large.
  • • Fill unwanted or uneven spaces.
  • • Restore worn or chipped teeth.

HOW IS IT DONE?

Getting veneers usually requires several visits, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared and shaped in order to allow for the thickness of the veneer to be bonded onto them. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will be chosen by you and your prosthodontist.

Usually, on the second visit, the teeth are cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
