Porcelain dental veneers improve smiles with a single treatment
Many patients who want to improve their smiles are pleased to learn about porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are thin strips of porcelain that are bonded to the fronts of teeth. They are custom made to the dentists’ specifications to be an exact match in shade and shape. Because they are made of porcelain they reflect light the same way as original teeth, and look completely natural.
Who can use dental veneers?
Dental veneers may be used to hide imperfections such as:
- Chips or cracks in enamel
- Minor misalignment
Veneers can be used on a single tooth, on several teeth, or the visible portion of an entire upper or lower arch. Most patients find veneers to be comfortable and do not experience any irritation of gums or oral tissues.
The veneers procedure
Placing dental veneers requires two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, teeth are prepared for the veneers. This requires removing a small amount of enamel to create space for veneers to fit naturally. Next, the dentist takes impressions that are sent to a dental laboratory and used to create the veneers. When the veneers are complete, you return to the office to have them placed. Dr. Cobb ensures that they are the right shade and shape, and that you like the placement, before permanently bonding veneers to teeth.
