Custom Veneers

The dentists at Artistic and Family Dental can give you a powerful smile upgrade with custom veneers. In just two or three dental visits, veneers can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine and tobacco use. Special thin laminates, called veneers, can also be used to correct discolored, worn down, cracked and chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to close unsightly gaps between teeth. Veneers tend to last longer than composite fillings on front teeth, because they are made out of laboratory material and are bonded to the teeth.

 

An impression of the tooth must be made and a veneer fabricated by a lab technician. Because veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed, they are permanent and non-reversible. The process involves buffing the tooth, removing an extremely thin layer of the tooth to allow for the thickness of the veneer, an impression of the tooth, and final bonding of the veneer to the tooth with special cement. If this sounds like something you are interested in, call Artistic & Family Dental and let them know! The doctors are happy to answer any further questions.

Traditional Porcelain Veneers

Two of the most popular options in restorative cosmetic dentistry today are Veneers. Veneers are made of thin, durable porcelain material and can provide natural looking, long lasting results when prepared by an experienced, competent dentist. In order to determine which option is best for you, your dentist will consider a variety of circumstances, which include your unique dental history, your overall health, your personal desires and expectations, and her professional understanding of how your final results will meet your needs.

A traditional veneer is essentially a conservative crown. Rather than encompassing the entire tooth, a cosmetic veneer covers the visible part of a tooth preserving a large amount of the natural tooth structure. Veneers can straighten, lengthen and whiten teeth to provide a beautiful smile and even create a more comfortable bite position. For optimal results, each veneered tooth must be shaped. This means that a thin layer (approximately .5 mm) of the natural tooth structure is removed to allow space for veneer placement.

Porcelain veneers, alternatively termed “dental veneers” or “dental porcelain laminates,” are wafer-thin shells of porcelain permanently bonded to teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned. Porcelain veneers are non-porous (they will not stain), incredibly resilient, and “kind” (non-abrasive) to opposing teeth. When a veneer is firmly bonded to a sturdy substructure (like a tooth) it becomes very strong and durable.
