(Requires 5-7 days)
Veneers are thin shells that are laid onto the teeth and bonded to the surface. Although they can be made of different materials, porcelain is frequently used because of its durability and realistic appearance. Veneers are a more conservative alternative to crowns since they require less removal of the tooth’s original surface. With veneers in place, patients can expect straighter, whiter, and more even looking teeth. You can see porcelain veneers’ exeptional success in our porcelain veneer case pictures
Application Procedure of Porcelain Veneers
On the first day, the patient and dentist discuss the process of placing veneers and the options available (e.g. types and shades of veneers). On your next visit, the dentist removes a very small layer of each tooth’s outer enamel. A local anesthesia may be used. The dentist makes a mold of the teeth then the technicians create customized veneers for the teeth. The lab prepares the veneers in one day. During this time, the teeth have a slightly different appearance because of the removal of the outer layer of enamel. On the third day, when the veneers are ready, the patient makes their final dental visit. The dentist applies the veneer to the tooth using a bonding material. When exposed to light, this bonding material dries and hardens.
