What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, strong shells that are custom-crafted from dental porcelain. Made from an impression of the tooth or teeth that you’d like to have repaired, they’re shaped to fit over the visible surface to conceal a variety of flaws. These shells can fix chips, cracks, gaps, fractures, and severe discoloration all with a single solution. Each veneer is made separately and permanently cemented over your natural teeth to reveal a seamless and complete smile.
The Process of Getting Veneers
Before Dr. Corey Martinez starts the procedure, you’ll need to have an initial consultation. This is just to ensure that porcelain veneers are the right choice for you. He’ll ask you about what goals you have for your smile and what flaws you’d like to have repaired. He’ll also inspect the health of your teeth and gums to make sure no preparatory treatment is needed. After discussing any possible limitations veneers may have for your specific case, you’ll be able to decide if veneers are the solution for you.
The next step will be your first appointment. During this visit, we’ll start by preparing your teeth for your permanent veneers by removing a small portion of your enamel. This is to compensate for the thickness of the shells, so the restorations lay flush with the rest of your teeth and don’t protrude from your mouth. Dr. Martinez will then take impressions of each of the teeth that you’d like to have repaired and send them off to a dental laboratory to craft your custom permanent shells. We’ll also place temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth and help you get used to the way they feel.
Once your permanent veneers arrive from the dental laboratory, we’ll call you in for your final appointment. After inspecting them to ensure that they meet his high-quality standards, Dr. Martinez will permanently cement them to each of your teeth. Once they’re all securely placed, he’ll make any necessary final adjustments. You’ll be able to leave our office feeling confident in your newly transformed smile!
