How porcelain veneers work
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin pieces of dental porcelain that are custom-shaped and shaded and then bonded onto the front surface of your teeth, where they hide a variety of aesthetic imperfections such as:
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen or oddly sized teeth
- Mildly crooked teeth
- Asymmetry in your smile
- Pits and grooves in enamel
- Permanent stains
- …and more!
To place porcelain veneers, the dentist first prepares your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel so that the veneers are not too large and bulky in your mouth. Then, we take dental impressions of your teeth and send those to the laboratory, where your veneers are custom-fabricated. Once they are ready, you return to our office and we will make any minor adjustments as needed before placing them on your teeth with a strong bonding agent.
Am I a good candidate?
While porcelain veneers cannot be used to correct all teeth and bite problems, they are a great option for patients who have teeth and gums that are free from decay and disease and want to improve the appearance of their smile. For patients who are interested in an option that requires little to no tooth preparation, composite veneers using dental bonding can be a great option. Dr. David Wilhelm will discuss all of your options with you, along with their pros and cons, to help you arrive at a decision that you feel comfortable with.
