Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin shells of tooth-coloured porcelain that are custom-fitted over the front of patients’ teeth to mask or ameliorate the appearance of an array of dental imperfections, including discoloration and staining, chipped teeth, and misshapen teeth. The demand of porcelain veneers is perhaps the most popular smile makeover treatment performed in Del Mar Highlands Dentistry. Often, porcelain veneers are referred to as “instant orthodontics” because, in several cases, they can be used to improve the appearance of a crooked smile. While the porcelain veneers process requires at least two visits to your cosmetic dentist, the result is a transformed smile that can last a lifetime with opportune care.

The first step in the porcelain veneers process is a smile makeover consultation with your cosmetic dentist, during which, you will discuss the imperfections you like to cover and the results you expect to achieve. Next, your dentist will gently abstract a small portion of the enamel of the tooth or teeth to be treated to make room for your porcelain veneers. You will then take a mold of your mouth, which will be sent to a dental laboratory where your veneers will be custom draw up from porcelain to match bypass teeth in colour, shape, and size. When your porcelain veneers are ready, you will return to Del Mar Highlands Dentistry to have them permanently attached to the front of your teeth.

Outside refashioning to your veneers may add by your dentist to catch on the most natural-looking results possible. Dental crowns cover the entire surface of the damaged tooth after a root canal, unlike the porcelain veneers that are functional to only the front surface of the teeth and are initially cosmetic in function. While some cosmetic dentistry patients may choose cosmetic resin dental bonding as a more economical method of smile repair, it is paramount to take into account the appearance and longevity of porcelain veneers when deciding a cosmetic dentistry solution.

Porcelain veneers are the ideal method for patients who wish to relish a brilliant, straight, and salubrious-looking smile for many years to come.
