What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment frequently used to perfect the look of your smile. They’re made up of thin pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain that are specifically designed to cover damaged areas in your smile.
Every veneer is custom-made by shaping and shading the veneers, which allows them to blend in naturally with the rest of the smile. By reshaping and fixing imperfections in your teeth, this cosmetic dentistry procedure is a great way to restore your smile.
The Porcelain Veneer Process
Once you’ve decided on dental veneers, the procedure is fairly simple. The process begins with Dr. Adatia lightly buffing and shaping the surface of your teeth. This is done to prepare the teeth for veneer placement.
Once the teeth have been buffed to accommodate the new veneers, an impression of your teeth will be made and a color that matches the rest of your smile will be chosen. The purpose of the mold is to create a veneer that blends easily with the rest of your teeth, giving it a natural look. The veneers are bonded to your teeth, and when proper care is given, they’re quite durable.
When Should I Consider Porcelain Veneers?
