What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front of teeth. They are made from high-quality dental porcelain. These wafer-thin shells are designed to cover the front surface of teeth. The purpose is to mask imperfections and enhance the overall appearance of the smile. Porcelain veneers are made from dental impressions to match the color, shape, and translucency of the natural, surrounding teeth. We ensure that you will receive a seamless and natural-looking smile.

How Can Dental Veneers Help Me?

If you have sustained damage from a dental injury or have other cosmetic dental problems, veneers can help. Veneers are a long-lasting treatment that offers natural-looking restorations. Dental veneers also benefit patients with the following:

  • Large gaps between teeth
  • Broken, chipped teeth
  • Slightly crooked tooth
  • Deep tooth stains
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Shortened or worn teeth

If you want to address these dental problems, contact our office. We will examine your smile and help you determine if the veneers are right for your specific needs and goals.

For patients with more minor areas of injury or discoloration, we may recommend dental bonding. Veneers are best used to address many teeth at once, while bonding can address one or several teeth.

You will first meet with Dr. Sesi to determine if porcelain veneers are the right treatment for you. He will perform a physical exam of your mouth including your teeth, gums, and jaw. We will take dental impressions and scans of teeth to ensure that the veneers match the shape and size of each tooth.

The next step is to prepare your teeth. Our team will prepare each tooth receiving a dental veneer by removing a small amount of enamel. Preparing teeth will create room for the new porcelain veneers and ensures they will adhere to the teeth. Our team will take several impressions of your teeth and send the digital impressions to a dental laboratory. Dr. Sesi will do a shade analysis to make sure the dental veneers blend in naturally with your surrounding teeth. . 

The lab technician will use the digital impressions to create the dental veneers. Each tooth veneer follows the specifications of natural teeth. Once the final porcelain veneers arrive from the dental laboratory, Dr. Sesi will check them for fit and color. If you are satisfied with your new smile, your dentist will permanently bond the veneers to your teeth.

We ensure that your smile looks and feels natural and comfortable. Although it will take time for you to get accustomed to your new veneers, they will look and feel natural. 

Caring For Dental Veneers

Directly after your treatment, avoid foods and beverages that can stain your veneers. Additionally, do not use abrasive whitening toothpaste, as this can damage the veneers. Eating hard or crunchy foods during this time can place pressure on the veneers.

Brush gently and use a soft-bristled toothbrush. You still need to floss between your teeth to prevent gum disease, even if veneers cover all of your teeth. Patients with cosmetic restorations are still prone to problems like tooth and gum decay.

We will not recommend veneers for patients who clench or grind their teeth. Our office treats patients with bruxism or TMJ disorders before we recommend other restorative or cosmetic treatments. If you want more information on how we diagnose and treat TMJ disorders, visit TMJ Treatment. Contact our office if you have old veneers or feel any changes in the fit of your veneers.
