Porcelain Dental Veneer Procedure
The first step to getting dental veneers is to have a cosmetic consult to see if dental veneers are the best option for you. If dental veneers are right for you, then the first step is to take digital impressions and have our master ceramist design the veneers that are the right color and shape according to your specifications. At Precious Smiles Cosmetic Dentistry, we use a state-of-the-art digital impression system that provides higher accuracy than conventional impressions.
Once your custom veneers are created by the lab we are ready apply these. We first lightly prep your teeth, we shave off a small amount of natural tooth enamel on any tooth that is designated for dental veneers This is done to make space for the veneers. Next, a special etching solution is applied to the teeth. This roughens the surface of the teeth and helps the veneers bond easier. The etching solution is then washed off, and the teeth are thoroughly dried. The dental veneers are then applied to each tooth and secured with a long-lasting dental bond.

Do Porcelain Dental Veneers Look Natural?
Yes, once applied on a person’s teeth, porcelain veneers are nearly invisible. They provide the appearance of healthy, white tooth enamel. Since veneers are constructed from special stain-resistant materials, they are usually not prone to being discolored because of contact with tobacco products and dark-colored beverages like coffee, wine and juice. When cared for properly, a set of veneers should last for about ten years. Our practice offers different types of veneers such as porcelain veneers and composite veneers, as well as the Lumineers brand of veneers for your smile.
