A veneer is a porcelain shell that is bonded to the front of the tooth to replace chipped teeth or to change the shape and color. Veneers are used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of the front teeth, hiding imperfections and leaving patients with a brighter smile. Porcelain veneers can close gaps between the teeth or even make teeth appear straighter. Whether your teeth have been damaged by tooth disease or decay or you just want to change the look of your teeth, veneers can transform your smile. Schedule a consultation for porcelain veneers to see if you are a candidate.
During the first visit, you will have the opportunity to speak with us about your goals for your bright new smile. Then, Dr. Van Dyke will decide which cosmetic dental plan will work best for your teeth. This normally involves taking impressions to wax up proposed treatment.
Your second veneer visit involves preparation for your new smile. Thanks to temporary veneers, you will have the chance to try on the veneer to test how well it fits. This fitting allows us to determine which shade of coloring works best for your appearance. Temporaries allow the patient and dentist to work out any changes to shape, color or bite.
Veneer bonding, the third and final step, involves bonding the veneers to the teeth. We apply a high-intensity light to set the veneers, leaving you with a natural smile you will enjoy for years to come. Special care is required to ensure the veneers last over time.
