What are veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are bonded to your natural tooth structure to give you that perfect smile. Veneers:
- Brighten, lengthen and straighten teeth
- Close up the gaps between teeth
- Cover dark stains
- Repair worn or decayed teeth
Working with your dentist, you can customize your beautiful new smile with the color, size and shape of your teeth as well as broaden your dental arch to create a wider-looking smile. With a width only as wide as a contact lens, porcelain veneers require very minimal tooth reduction, leaving you with a final result that looks and feels like natural teeth.
What is the procedure?
Your dentist buffs your teeth lightly to prepare them for the added thickness of the veneer. Porcelain veneers are custom-made by a dental technician in a lab, working from a model provided by your dentist at Natomas Crossing Dental Care. Your veneers are placed on your teeth to check the fit and color. After the color is finalized, the tooth is cleansed with chemicals and then rinsed. Cement is placed between the veneer and the tooth, and a special beam of light is used to harden the cement.
How should I care for my veneers?
Brush and floss just like you would your natural teeth. Use non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste. We recommend limiting your intake of coffee, red wine and other stain-inducing foods.
