What is a porcelain veneer?
A veneer is a very thin porcelain facing that will cover the front of a tooth. A porcelain veneer can cover and hide almost any cosmetic issue. Your dentist will bond this thin shell to the front of the tooth. Porcelain looks like a real tooth so this kind of restoration will look completely natural.
You won’t even notice they are there while talking or eating. A dental veneer is a permanent, irreversible dental restoration that is highly stain resistant.
Your teeth will not turn yellow over time. Dental veneers are very durable and natural looking. Your dentist can design them to correct many cosmetic dental problems. They are a good choice for improving your smile and have become more popular.
Porcelain veneers can treat man issues, including:
- Whiten stained teeth
- Restore teeth to their most attractive shape (longer, wider, shorter, or narrower)
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
- Straighten the appearance of crooked teeth
The Porcelain Veneer Process
Dr. Weinstock only works with one of the finest dental labs in the world. These master technicians handcraft each individual veneer for optimal shading and characterization. Most importantly, these craftsmen share Dr. Weinstock’s exceedingly high standards for exceptional quality.
The dental veneer procedure will usually take two or three visits to our dentist office. The first visit is a consultation with Dr. Weinstock. Here he will determine if you are a candidate for porcelain veneers. You must be in good oral health to qualify for this cosmetic dentistry treatment. At the next visit, he will prepare the surface of your teeth. He does this by removing a small amount of tooth surface. This provides space for the dental veneer.
Meanwhile, the dental lab will make your custom veneer to fit perfectly. They will use the highest quality ceramics, color matched to your natural appearance.
After they prepare your teeth, your dentist will permanently bond the custom designed dental veneer to your tooth. The veneer will cover the front and sides of your tooth or teeth for a long-lasting and permanent cosmetic restoration.
