Smile Makeover with Veneers

Veneers | Porcelain Veneers

What are Veneers?

Veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic (porcelain) or a composite resin material, which are bonded to the front of teeth. This procedure requires little or no anesthesia and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Veneers are placed to mask discolorations, to brighten teeth and to improve a smile.

Why a veneer?

Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth's color, size or shape. Veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline and damage due to an injury or as a result of a root-canal procedure. They are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider veneers. Generally, veneers will last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed.

What happens during the procedure?

Patients may need up to three appointments for the entire procedure: diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation and bonding.

It's critical that you take an active role in the smile design. Spend time in the planning of the smile. Understand the corrective limitations of the procedure. Have more than one consultation, if necessary, to feel comfortable that your dentist understands your objectives.

To prepare the teeth for the veneers, the teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer. Usually, about half a millimeter of the tooth is removed, which may require a local anesthetic. Composite resin veneers are generally done in one appointment. After the tooth is prepared, the dentist carefully bonds and sculpts the composite material onto your teeth. For ceramic veneers, a mold is taken of the teeth, which is sent to the laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers. This may take several days. If the teeth are too unsightly, a temporary veneer can be placed, at an additional cost.

When your ceramic veneers are ready, the dentist places each veneer on the teeth to check their fit and get a sense of the shade or color. While the veneers are resting on your teeth, view the results, and pay particular attention to the color. At this point, the color of the veneers can still be adjusted with the shade of the cement to be used. The color cannot be altered after veneers are cemented. To apply the veneer, the tooth is cleansed with specific chemicals to achieve a bond. Once a special cement is sandwiched between the veneer and tooth, a light beam hardens the cement.

How about maintenance?

For about a week or two, you will go through a period of adjustment as you get used to your "new" teeth that have changed in size and shape. Brush and floss daily. After one or two weeks, your dentist will ask you to return for a follow-up appointment.

What are realistic expectations?

Veneers are reasonable facsimiles of natural teeth, not perfect replacements. It's not uncommon to see slight variations in the color of veneers upon close inspection, as this occurs even in natural teeth. Nevertheless, this procedure can greatly enhance your smile and can heighten self-esteem.
Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are used in cosmetic dentistry to accomplish a number of goals. They can be used for subtle changes or dramatic transformations. A porcelain veneer is a thin, translucent shell of tooth-like material that is bonded to the front of teeth. Doctors at Max Dental offer porcelain veneers to patients who want to improve the beauty, health, or function of their teeth.

Porcelain veneers are used in cosmetic dentistry for a number of reasons including:

  • Closing spaces between teeth
  • Repairing chipped or broken teeth
  • Covering stained or discolored teeth

  • In some cases, porcelain veneers can be used to correct the appearance of crooked or misshaped teeth and help you avoid orthodontic treatment.

    Process For Porcelain Veneers

    The process for porcelain veneers takes place over several visits:

  • Consultation & Evaluation - First, Doctors at Max Dental performs an initial consultation and evaluation. The dentist will inspect your teeth, gums and mouth and determine if porcelain veneers are right for you. Next, he will create a treatment plan that outlines your specific process to meet your cosmetic goals as well as address your health concerns.
  • Preparation - Next, the Doctor will prepare the tooth or teeth to accommodate the porcelain veneers. It will be necessary to remove a small amount of the natural tooth structure to allow adequate space for the porcelain veneers to fit inside your mouth. A digital impression of the teeth will taken to be used to create the porcelain veneers.
  • Final Fit & Cementation - If the Doctor is using the technology, then they may place your porcelain veneers in the same visit. If they are being made at a dental laboratory, the Specialist doctor may apply temporary teeth veneers, which are usually made of resin, to protect the teeth. The final porcelain veneers will be tried on your teeth and checked for comfort and esthetics. The dentist will make any minor adjustments if needed before permanently bonding the porcelain veneers to the teeth.
  • After Care - Porcelain veneers require some special care. The Doctor will review instructions with you and show you how to floss and brush the dental veneers. Routine dental care, including teeth cleanings and examinations are important to ensure long term health and proper fit
