What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Whether they are called porcelain veneers, dental veneers, or just veneers, these cosmetic coverings can do wonders for your smile. Since they are bonded to the front-facing portion of your teeth, these ultra-thin layers of fine porcelain can effectively conceal a variety of smile imperfections – from a minor crack to permanent discoloration. Additionally, teeth that are misshaped, too small, or slightly crooked can be made to look more balanced and aesthetically pleasing.

The Porcelain Veneers Process

Before beginning any cosmetic procedure, Dr. Thompson will need to make sure your teeth and gums are free from cavities and gum disease. If any dental concerns are present, he can add the necessary remedy to your treatment plan to restore your oral health entirely. From there, you will discuss the shade, shape, and other details that make up your dream smile. Next, a slim layer of enamel will need to be filed away so your veneers will lay flush with your other teeth and do not protrude. With the aid of X-rays, photographs, and impressions, Dr. Thompson will meticulously design each individual veneer. That way, veneers for your incisors will look like incisors and canine teeth will look like canines. Our experienced dental lab will need about two weeks to handcraft the veneers, which is why we will provide you with a temporary set in the meantime. Once your permanent veneers arrive back in our office, Dr. Thompson will check the size and fit before adhesively bonding each one into place.
