Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are arguably one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry solutions currently available. These thin, fingernail-like covers are applied to the outer enamel of the teeth where they work to cover any cosmetic imperfections and improve the overall appearance of the teeth. In doing so, porcelain veneers can transform any smile and give patients greater confidence to share their smiles with the world.
Porcelain veneers are unique to each patient and can be applied individually to address an issue with a single tooth, or in sets so that you can improve virtually any part of your smile. They can also be created in a variety of different shades, making it possible to match individual veneers to your natural teeth so that they look extremely discreet or, alternatively, so they can change the color of your entire smile.

What is the process to receive porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are applied in a two-step process that involves two visits to your dentist’s office. During the first visit, impressions of your teeth will be taken and the shade that your porcelain veneers will be made in will be determined. This enables your veneers to be created in the perfect shape, size, and color to enhance the appearance of your teeth. When they are ready, you will make a second appointment.
At your return visit, your teeth will be prepared to receive the veneers. This process is done using local anesthetic as it involves filing down some of the natural enamel of your teeth. This is done to ensure that the veneer is a good fit and doesn’t look unnaturally thick. Once prepared, your dentist will check the fit of each veneer before applying it to the tooth with adhesive. The adhesive is then hardened using a special light which bonds it permanently to the tooth structure. This part of the process is painless and once complete, requires no downtime so you can start using your teeth as normal right away.
