Porcelain Veneers What to Expect
Precisely designed porcelain veneers achieve an end result that looks and feels like a natural smile. Dental veneers are custom designed by your highly trained cosmetic dentist. The veneers are shaped and color matched to blend seamlessly with your adjacent teeth.
The thin shell is made from a highly durable material that reflects light like natural tooth enamel. The material is stain and decay resistant providing patients with a long-term cosmetic solution.
A minimal amount of tooth enamel is removed from the surface of the tooth making room for the veneer. Because removal of tooth enamel is required for successful results, porcelain veneers are considered a permanent treatment option. Once the tooth is prepared, molds are taken and used to create a well fit veneer.
The dental veneer will be bonded to the surface of the tooth and polished to a natural sheen. Once the veneer is secured it can be cared for like your natural teeth. Routine dental cleanings and twice daily brushing and flossing can help keep your dental veneers healthy and beautiful for years to come.
