The Porcelain Veneer Procedure from Preparation to Placement
Once you have agreed together that this is the avenue you wish to take, we will first find a shade of white that matches your natural teeth. Then the enamel on the front of the tooth or teeth to be addressed will be taken down slightly to allow room for the veneer to sit on the front surface. An impression will be made of the teeth and then this will be sent off to the dental lab. They in turn will fabricate the veneer out of wafer-thin porcelain in the shade of white you have chosen. Upon completion Dr. Dolgov will clean all your teeth and then etch the surface such that an adhesive can be used to place the new veneer on the front of the tooth. Just like that you have a new tooth and a new smile.
The Benefits of having Porcelain Veneers
Here are a few of the benefits of having porcelain veneers placed over imperfect teeth.
- Whitens the Teeth- Sometimes people have issues getting their natural teeth whiter. Porcelain veneers can deliver that whiteness. They are also stain-resistant for those that love their coffee, tea, cola or red wine. Even foods or fruits with serious pigmentation are now safe.
- Cosmetic Issues Corrected- We mentioned that the new porcelain veneer can cover up cracks or chips, but they can also make a tooth look straight or even close that gap between two teeth.
- Life Expectancy- The life expectancy of porcelain veneers is decent if you care for them. It will surpass that of doing composite bonding on the front of the teeth. It is also more economical than receiving a full crown. We like to see as much of the natural tooth as possible at Bourbonnias Family Dental.
