What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are small, thin pieces of porcelain that are used to recreate the natural look of teeth.. They can also be used to modify or enhance the color, size, and shape of your existing teeth. They can correct gaps and spaces while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers provide an excellent alternative to crowns, bonding, ineffective tooth-whitening procedures, and in some cases, orthodontia or braces.

What does the procedure involve? It all begins with an initial consultation. Dr. Hamlett will help you decide if veneers are the right option for you. This process begins with a smile analysis to determine what steps are necessary to achieve the smile you desire. During the preparation appointment, your teeth will be prepared to accommodate the very thin, but highly durable, veneer “facings” Impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to the laboratory for fabrication. Temporary veneers will be placed in the interim in order to protect your prepared natural teeth. Several weeks later your temporary veneers are removed and your new porcelain veneers will be tried in. Providing all of your specifications have been met and you like the look of your new teeth an adhesive bonding agent will then be used to permanently secure your new veneers in place. Now you can show off your beautiful smile to friends, family, and coworkers!
