Porcelain veneers allow us to craft beautiful smiles for our patients without them having to wear braces for months on end. Whether teeth are spaced or crowded, there is hope for a fantastic smile with porcelain veneers.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom-made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
The porcelain veneers procedure requires two to three office visits. Initially, you and Dr. Popli will discuss your diagnosis and devise a treatment plan that is best for you. Subsequently, your teeth will be prepared for the porcelain veneers by removing a small amount of the tooth’s enamel. Then, a mold is taken of your teeth and the impression is sent to the dental lab so they can fabricate your custom porcelain veneers. You will then come in to our office for a final visit, at which time the porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth. When your final appointment is complete, you will walk out of our office with a bright, natural smile that you will be proud to show off!
Porcelain veneers not only look 100% natural, they also last for years and require only minimal preparation of the tooth, unlike older techniques such as caps or crowns. Porcelain veneers are also highly resistant to stains, so you can continue to enjoy coffee, tea, and soda without fading your new smile.
The dream of having a smile free of gaps, cracks, discolorations, and other imperfections can become a reality with porcelain veneers. If you would like to learn more about porcelain veneers, please contact us today to schedule a full cosmetic consultation and workup
