What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin coverings that fit snugly over the surface of your teeth. Hiding any and all imperfections, these customizable “masks” can transform your smile in just two appointments! Considered to be one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available, everyone from Hollywood movie stars to your average working professional can achieve a beautiful, longer-lasting smile.

How Do Porcelain Veneers Correct Teeth?

By conservatively resurfacing anterior teeth with porcelain veneers, patients can whiten their teeth in a manner that does not allow shade regression over time. In addition, porcelain veneers strengthen chipped or fractured tooth enamel, fill gaps in between teeth, and can reshape tooth anatomy to a more pleasing and attractive form. In many instances, there is minimal to no drilling of enamel required in preparing the natural teeth for veneer placement. Usually, with otherwise healthy teeth and gums, only two appointments are required for veneer fabrication and delivery.

What is the Procedure for Porcelain Veneers Like?

When you arrive at Lakefront Dental, you will always be greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. As we escort you to the dentist chair, one of our highly trained cosmetic dentists will begin by removing a small bit of the enamel from your tooth. Depending on your individual needs, you may or may need sedation during your procedure.

Once your teeth are “prepped,” we’ll take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental lab, so the technicians can begin to work on your veneers. This can take 1 to 2 weeks for your permanent veneers to be created.

When they’re ready, you’ll return to our office for your final appointment. This is when we will check to make sure your veneers are the correct color, size, and shape. Cleaning the veneers thoroughly, we will use a special bonding cement to place the veneer on your natural tooth. Finally, we will use a curing light to help the cement harden quickly.
