Porcelain veneers are thin, shell-like sheets of porcelain that are bonded onto the front of teeth to restore them to their original luster. Porcelain veneers can mask the appearance of chipped or stained teeth, while also straightening teeth that are slightly crooked or misaligned. Porcelain veneers offer the most esthetic means of creating the smile of your dreams. They require a very little of tooth structure modification and are therefore one of the most conservative of restorations.
Porcelain veneers are bonded directly to the enamel of the teeth. Due to their simplicity and versatility, veneers have become increasingly popular and are an ideal choice for improving your smile.
This painless procedure, which is typically completed within three office visits, can be used to correct:
Porcelain is a material very similar to the color, look and feel of natural tooth enamel. If you have severely discolored teeth that don’t respond to tooth whitening methods, Dr.Topalovic and team will help you choose a natural-looking color of white that will give you the smile you are looking for.
Veneers can also correct a jagged or misshapen tooth. If you’ve suffered injury to your mouth, you may have tiny cracks or chips on the surface of your teeth that veneers can effectively cover.
Fortunately, porcelain veneers are long-lasting. They are made of an extremely durable, translucent material with texture similar to tooth enamel. They are generally not susceptible to decay and should resist heavy staining, so even as time passes, your new smile should remain intact. When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea or even cigarette stains.
How is the Porcelain Veneers procedure performed?
After the tooth structure is reduced slightly, an impression is taken and sent to a laboratory where a thin shell of porcelain is created. We work as a team to create the perfect form and function, reflecting the characteristics of your face and personality, to achieve optimal esthetic results. At the second treatment appointment the veneer is than bonded by the dentist to the surface of the teeth. The bond between the porcelain veneers and the tooth structure is so great that it becomes an undetectable part of the teeth. The result is a natural looking smile unlike any other restoration can provide.
Combination treatments to straighten teeth
Teeth can be quickly straightened using an Inman aligner prior to further cosmetic treatment such as a smile makeover with porcelain veneers. If the teeth are heavily worn and discolored but also crowded this is an excellent way to achieve the very best aesthetic results, whilst maintaining a very conservative approach. This means even severe cases can be treated without the heavy trimming back of teeth that would be required if the case was attempted with veneers alone.
