Porcelain veneers is thin shell of porcelain, that the natural look of teeth comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those patients looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.
Porcelain veneers are a very successful option in many situations where the original tooth is discoloured or in bad shape or size. It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth. For some people, superficial stains do not respond well to tooth whitening or bleaching. In these situations, a porcelain veneer may be the best option.
Visiting us and asking about veneers is the first step in determining if veneers are the right option for you. Communication with us about what you want corrected is important for a successful result. Spend time to understand what cosmetic improvements you want to achieve.
We will most likely begin with a DIGITAL SMILE ANALYSIS and decide what is necessory in your case. In addition, we may create a diagnostic mock-up that will allow you visualize veneers and other procedures. Moreover, the mock up allows you to see if the final result is actually what you are looking for.
Deciding that porcelain veneers will create the result you want is only one step in the process. You should be very clear about the treatment before proceeding further.
Since veneers are custom made for each patient, it is difficult to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains because they are made of high-tech materials.
With veneers, your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount of tooth structure being altered to fit the veneer.
For teeth that resist whitening, veneers can make even the darkest teeth appear white.
We may also recommend veneers to quickly fix minor malalignments, overlaps, and small gaps.
