At Nevada Dental Esthetics, Dr. Jorge Paez and his team in Las Vegas, NV, believe in offering general, cosmetic, and restorative solutions for patients ready to enhance their smiles while achieving oral health and wellness. With our providers, you can learn more about solutions for the teeth and gums that meet your unique needs. If you are struggling with imperfections of the smile, you might be advised to consider restorations such as porcelain veneers, also referred to as “dental veneers.”
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are dental restorations that are thin shells of ceramic materials that are custom-made to fit over the front surface of teeth. They are best used to improve the appearance of teeth, providing a brighter and whiter smile. Veneers cover chips, cracks, gaps, and discoloration on your natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers are also used to bring an uneven or misaligned smile into alignment and make it look more symmetrical.
What Can I Expect During the Process of Obtaining Porcelain Veneers?
The treatment process for porcelain veneers begins with an evaluation with Dr. Jorge Paez. During this appointment, he will discuss what you hope to accomplish with porcelain veneers and assess your oral health. Afterward, there will be a few preparatory steps before the veneers can be placed. These include taking impressions of your teeth, removing a small amount of enamel to make room for the porcelain veneers, and providing you with temporary restorations to wear while your permanent ones are being created in a dental laboratory.
When your veneers have been made, you return to the office for the final fitting. Dr. Jorge Paez checks them for fit and color, then bonds them securely in place with specialized dental cement. The whole process usually requires two appointments over the course of a few weeks. With proper care, your porcelain dental veneers can last for many years and provide you with an attractive, natural-looking smile with ease!
