Porcelain veneers are probably what you are admiring when you see your favorite celebrities on the red carpet. People in the public eye understand the importance of a toothy white grin, and know that tooth whitening may not always do the trick, tooth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the world, but unfortunately it doesn’t work for everyone, and that is where porcelain veneers come in.
What are Porcelain Veneers
Dental veneers are much more affordable than they used to be and are thin pieces of porcelain that are placed over the top of your front teeth.
The Porcelain Veneer Procedure
If Dr. Bill Dorfman, an accredited fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, bestselling author and America’s Dentist determines that you are a good fit for porcelain veneers a small amount of enamel will be removed from your teeth to make way for the veneers. Because the enamel needs to be removed, cosmetic veneers are permanent.
Once the enamel has been removed, an impression will be made so that your new veneers will look and feel natural. In some cases, you may need temporary dental veneers if your teeth are too unsightly.
When your new porcelain veneers are ready to be placed, Dr. Dorfman will check for fit and color before bonding into place. Your new porcelain veneers will be filed and polished to give you the smile that you deserve.
Porcelain veneers are great for:
- Discolored teeth that cannot be helped with tooth whitening
- Worn teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
When you schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Dorfman, explain what you want to achieve and what you want your smile to look at. Bringing in a picture of your favorite smile will help as well.
