What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a thin but durable sheath for the teeth that are custom-tailored for each patient. Using a mold of your natural teeth, Dr. Douglas Desatnik is able to achieve a perfect fit, provide you with a solid bite, and give your teeth a uniform and vibrant appearance. Since porcelain veneers are designed to cover only the visible portion of each tooth, the procedure can preserve a great deal of your natural tooth structure while still maximizing the cosmetic benefits.
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Your veneers are hand-made to blend seamlessly with your smile, match the color of your existing teeth, or brighten teeth that are stained. In order to securely bond the veneers to your teeth, a thin layer of outer enamel will be removed from the tooth. Typically, this procedure involves very little discomfort, and most patients will not even require a local anesthetic. After this outer enamel is removed, a mold is made of your teeth to create veneers that fit the tooth with maximum precision. Once a veneer is bonded to the tooth, the restoration can last for decades with proper care. Also, there is typically no downtime necessary with this procedure.
Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Dr. Desatnik will conduct a one-on-one consultation to determine if porcelain veneers can help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Porcelain veneers are used to correct dental imperfections for patients of virtually any age. After an examination of your teeth and gums, Dr. Desatnik will recommend a treatment plan that can meet your expectations and give you the even, bright, and beautiful smile you desire.
