At Absolute Dentistry, our Team of Dental Professionals will work with you to create the smile you have always dreamed of.
Porcelain Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their color and shape. Porcelain Veneers generally only cover the front and top of a tooth. Porcelain Veneers can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth, or whiten stained or dark teeth. When teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, Porcelain Veneers may protect the tooth from damage and restore their original appearance.
Porcelain Veneers fit over the front of teeth and have the ability to transform the smile by completely concealing imperfections.
Porcelain veneers camouflage numerous cosmetic problems, making them an option for a wide range of patients. Chips, cracks, discoloration, and misalignment are among the flaws veneers can cover.
Many people are dissatisfied with their smile because of the alignment of their teeth, but avoid seeking orthodontic treatment because they don’t want to wear traditional braces. Porcelain Veneers may be used to reshape crooked teeth that would otherwise require orthodontic treatment.
Porcelain Veneers are often all that is needed to achieve your results, but they are also compatible with other dental treatments. For example, they can be placed in combination with teeth whitening, Invisalign Orthodontics, TMJ treatment, or Dental Crowns to completely repair and enhance a patient’s smile.
During the first appointment, we shape and roughen the teeth. We then take impressions of your teeth, which we use to make precise working models of your mouth. It’s on these models that we artistically craft veneers to fit the prepared teeth.
During the second appointment, we clean and polish the prepared teeth. Then we use an adhesive to bond the Porcelain Veneers to the teeth. A harmless, high-intensity light hardens the adhesive. Once in place, Porcelain Veneers virtually become part of your teeth! You can use them like you would your own teeth because the bond is extremely strong. The final result is beautiful and natural-looking teeth.
It can take time for you to get used to the appearance and feel of your new teeth. You won’t have to change the way you floss or brush, however. But you should not:
Doing any of these things can cause the veneers to come off, break or chip. Your dentist will ask you to come back in a few weeks and they will check the veneers for any problems.
