Porcelain veneers are thin coverings of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. They can help protect severely worn teeth. Porcelain veneers can also be used to address unsightly spaces or tooth shades, misaligned teeth, teeth with a lot of recession, and worn teeth.
Placing custom teeth veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. Dr. Hoffman and Dr. Patrick have extensive training through the Dawson Academy on designing and fabricating esthetic veneers. She takes detailed records of patients interested in veneers that include photos and diagnostic models. Drs. Hoffman or Patrick will wax up teeth in the ideal shape and contour. She will then consult with the patient and the lab to have personalized veneers designed that will enhance the characteristics of the patient’s smile.
Will dental veneers look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
Drs. Hoffman and Patrick will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
