Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to enhance the appearance of your smile and give you a natural look.
Our veneers at Signature Dental can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions. Veneers are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
Severely discolored or stained teeth.
Teeth that are too small or large.
Unwanted or uneven spaces.
Worn or chipped teeth.
What is involved in getting porcelain veneers?
Two visits are usually required to complete the process of getting porcelain veneers. Your natural teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and one of our experienced dentists.
On the second visit your teeth will be cleansed with a special solution to promote a durable bond. Once the veneers are applied. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
