Porcelain veneers are more affordable than ever before. Dr. David Schaefer recommends porcelain veneers if you have teeth that are chipped, cracked or worn. If you have a space between your teeth or teeth that are tipped or rotated, porcelain veneers could be a good fit for you, your smile, and your confidence.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are bonded to the fronts of your teeth. Because a small amount of enamel needs to be removed for natural fitting veneers, the cosmetic dental procedure is permanent.
Cosmetic veneers are made from dental grade porcelain and mimic light just as your natural teeth do.
Porcelain Veneers Placement
If Dr. Schaefer believes that you are a good fit for porcelain veneers, you will need three dental appointments.
During your first porcelain veneers appointment, a portion of the enamel will be removed. Once removed, a mold or impression will be sent to the lab for manufacture. If your teeth are not ready for public consumption, a temporary set of veneers may be fitted until your permanent cosmetic veneers are ready.
After a couple of weeks, you will return to Dr. Schaefer’s office for permanent placement. The veneers will be checked for fit and color, and once your dentist is satisfied, will be bonded into place. After placement, the bonding will be cured with a laser or light.
Once the veneers have been bonded, they will be polished to perfection.
Dr. Schaefer recommends a third dental appointment to check your new veneers for placement and bite.
Cosmetic dentistry can change your life. A beautiful smile not only gives you more confidence, but can also improve your overall health.
