Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain shells that are bonded to the front sides of your teeth. Many people who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their smile have found that veneers can transform their teeth into the Hollywood smile they have always dreamed of.
Porcelain veneers are the perfect solution for people who would like to correct a variety of dental problems, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Misshaped teeth
- Spacing problems
- Worn teeth
- Broken teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
Veneers are created to perfectly match the shape, color, size, and even translucency of your natural teeth. The result is a beautiful, natural looking smile that you can be proud of.
The Porcelain Veneers Process
The first step every patient must make prior to receiving veneers is scheduling an initial consultation with an experienced cosmetic dentist like Dr. Paez. During your initial consultation, Dr. Paez will listen to your problems and help you decide if porcelain veneers are right for you.
If dental veneers are the best solution for your teeth, Dr. Paez will schedule you for a work up so you will see what the results will be for your personal smile. During your first appointment, Dr. Paez will prepare your teeth for the porcelain veneers. This involves removing a very small portion of the enamel from your teeth so that the porcelain veneers fit seamlessly onto the front sides of the teeth.
After your teeth have been prepared, Dr. Paez will make an impression of your teeth. This impression will then be sent to a dental laboratory where your porcelain veneers will be custom made for your smile. After the porcelain veneers have been created, they will be sent back to Dr. Paez.
The creation of your porcelain veneers usually takes a couple weeks. During this time, Dr. Paez will fit you with temporary veneers. Many times, people are so pleased with these temporary dental veneers that they can’t believe the difference in their smile when the permanent porcelain veneers arrive.
Once your porcelain veneers have arrived at Dr. Paez’s office, you will be invited in to inspect the porcelain veneers and either approve them or send them back so that adjustments can be made to them. After the porcelain veneers are perfect for you, Dr. Paez will carefully etch the surfaces of your teeth so that the porcelain veneers can be permanently bonded to your teeth. Then, he will apply the bonding agent and the porcelain veneers to your teeth and cure the bonding cement with a special light.
Once the veneers have been bonded to your teeth, you can smile with confidence knowing that you have a wonderful new smile. Porcelain veneers are very durable, and will last you for years to come.
