Who uses porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers, are ceramic restorations commonly used to disguise imperfections that negatively impact the appearance of the smile. They are best used on the teeth near the front of the mouth called the anterior teeth. These porcelain restorations are essentially a facing bonded over the teeth to change their entire look. They are best for covering fractured, stained, or unusually shaped teeth that may cause patients to feel self-conscious about the appearance of their smiles.
What is the process of placing veneers?
Dr. Clint Bruyere starts with a wax mold to show patients how their smile will look after the veneers are placed. Preparations are done, in which the enamel on the front of the tooth is reduced. Impressions are made and used by the ceramist to fabricate the new veneers. In the meantime, the dentist places temporary veneers until the new restorations arrive – typically within three weeks. Patients then return to the office for bonding their new veneers in place for a more beautiful appearance!
