One of the most versatile procedures in all of cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers may be just the esthetic solution you are looking for to achieve that rejuvenated smile. A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is used to dramatically change teeth's position, size, color, and shape. Porcelain veneers are laid over your own teeth to mask any problems, resulting in a beautiful, natural smile. This mode of treatment is considered a minimally invasive one, meaning that this is accomplished in a comfortable, pain free way. That smile that you have been dreaming of can be created in as few as two appointments using porcelain veneers.
An alternative to crowns, porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored restorations that lay over your existing teeth.Veneers are an excellent way to redesign and reshape your entire mouth. They can easily conceal or correct the appearance of stains, chips, cracks, and misaligned teeth. Porcelain veneers are durable, long lasting, stain-resistant, and are indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
In terms of the process to place veneers, it is a process that takes approximately two to three visits. In the first visit, we will discuss the new shape and look of what we are going to accomplish by placing the veneers. Once we have put a plan in place, we will carefully prepare the teeth for the placement of the new veneers. As we complete this piece of the process, the next step is to take an impression of the newly prepared teeth. This impression will be sent to our laboratory for the final product to be fabricated. We only utilize the highest standard laboratory for fabrication of all of our work. This process at the laboratory takes between 10-14 days. While the new veneers are being fabricated at the lab, we will provide you with a beautiful temporary solution to wear for this time.
As the veneers are finalized, we will make every effort to make sure that your new veneers will feel just like your natural teeth. We will bond them into place ensuring that you can enjoy your new smile for a very long time! For more information on porcelain veneers contact Dr Certner today.
