Our dentists may recommend porcelain veneers to enhance your smile. Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells, custom-made to fit perfectly over your teeth and cover the flaws in your smile. Veneers may be recommend to:
- Close gaps and spaces between teeth
- Whiten severely stained teeth
- Correct slightly crooked teeth
- Restore teeth which are chipped, fractured or excessively worn
- Improve teeth which are irregularly shaped
At Great White Dental, we have chosen to use porcelain when creating your veneers because it matches the natural translucency, appearance and durability of tooth enamel, producing results that are both beautiful and long-lasting.
It typically requires two appointments to complete a treatment with dental veneers. During the first appointment our dentists prepare your teeth to receive veneers. This may involve removing a small amount of your original tooth structure so that the veneers will fit and function properly. An impression is taken and sent to a trusted dental lab for your veneers to be created. When you return for your second appointment, our dentists will place the veneers on your teeth and check that they fit correctly before bonding them in place. After your veneers have been bonded in place we will polish them to give you a beautiful final result.
