What is a veneer?
Porcelain veneers are often chosen as a cosmetic dentistry option for patients who wish to improve their appearance. Veneers change the size, shape, length and color of the teeth in the front. They are typically made from thin, custom made porcelain plates that cover just the front of your teeth.
Veneers are used for teeth that are misshapen or heavily stained on the inside, known as intrinsic stains. The dentist at VSP Dental will take 3D Scans of the teeth and have them made here at our in-house lab. They will make a custom fitting set of porcelain veneers that will perfectly fit the teeth of the patient.
When the porcelain veneers are ready from the lab, an appointment is scheduled. The dentist usually numbs the patient with local anesthetic, and begins to reduce the size of the teeth by about a half a millimeter. This allows space for the veneers. Once the reduction is completed, the surface of the prepared tooth is etched with a special gel that desiccates and roughens up the surface of the tooth.
Adhesive bond is then applied with a tiny brush and a special ultraviolet light cures the bonding. The veneers are permanently cemented in place. Any adjustments are then made to ensure the patient can properly bite down and chew food. Proper adjustment will make the veneers last a long time and lessen the chances of breakage or chipping.
