If your objective in consulting Holistic Dental Centers is to get straighter, whiter and more even teeth, then porcelain veneers will fit right into your plan. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are laid over and bonded to teeth, creating a beautiful “superstar” smile. Even though veneers can be made of various materials, at Holistic Dental Centers, they are made of porcelain because of the safety of the material, and the durability and realistic aesthetics. Unlike crowns, the use of veneers can require significantly smaller amounts of the tooth’s natural surface to be removed prior to placement. However, it will depend on the size and shape, the position of the teeth, and the dentists preferred method of preparing the tooth.
During the first visit, the Doctor will discuss the process of placing veneers with you and explain the various options that are available. Your next visit will involve the removal of a small layer of your teeth’s outer enamel in preparation for the placement of the veneers. A local anesthetic will be used for this portion of the process. Next, a mold of your teeth will be taken and sent to a dental lab where customized veneers will be prepared. The Doctor will also place temporary restorations which you will wear for 2-3 weeks, until your customized veneers are returned to Holistic Dental Centers.
When the dental office receives your permanent veneers, your final appointment will take place. During that appointment, the veneers will be placed onto your teeth with a bonding material that dries and hardens when exposed to light.
