Cosmetic Dentistry ~ Veneers
Never again will you feel the need to hide your smile because of stained, distorted, or gapped teeth. Your smile is meant to be shared with the world. Our goal is to leave our patients with a smile that they are proud of. Porcelain veneers can fix those minor imperfections, with a natural tooth-colored overlay. This is a versatile cosmetic option, bringing your desired smile to life.
Veneers have several advantages over crowns (caps). A veneer has no “dark line” that perhaps you have seen on older front crowns, they transmit light better and therefore have a more translucent and natural appearance.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
A porcelain veneer is a wafer-thin shell made from materials that give it a natural tooth color, making appearance corrections unnoticeable. These shells cover the surface of teeth, adjusting the size or shape of teeth.
What is the process for Veneers?
First Appointment: Your initial appointment with Dr. Murdoch will include an examination to see if a porcelain veneer is the best option for you, keeping your desires and health in mind. Sometimes an x-ray is needed during this initial appointment.
Tooth Preparation: The tooth in need of the veneer will be cleaned, polished, and roughened up so that it can eventually stick to the veneer. An impression of the tooth is taken to have a customized veneer created.
Bonding: Once the veneer is ready for placement, it is cemented into place and bonded to your natural tooth.
A New Smile: When you look in the mirror, you’ll be pleased to see that the imperfections have disappeared almost as if they never existed.
