Dr. Donald Reid is a nationally recognized cosmetic dentist in Lake Tahoe, CA, offering a full range of treatment options including porcelain veneers. He has been helping patients achieve the smile they desire for over 30 years with cosmetic dentistry. Highly trained in the latest techniques and utilizing high quality materials, Dr. Reid combines skill and an eye for the aesthetic when placing custom dental veneers with natural looking results. Porcelain veneers can be a permanent solution for cosmetic concerns such as tooth discoloration, a misshapen tooth, gaps between teeth or damaged teeth.
Made of an ultra-thin but highly durable layer of porcelain ceramic, porcelain veneers are custom color matched and fit for your smile. Once placed, they will reflect light much like natural teeth and provide many years of wear and stain resistance due to the quality of the material and high standard of care we offer when it comes to cosmetic and restorative dental treatments. Considered a permanent dental restoration, porcelain veneers can be used to address:
- Aging teeth that have worn down
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Stained, discolored or yellowed teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening
- Stained, unsightly or washed-out fillings
- Misshapen or crooked teeth that do not need orthodontic treatment
- Gaps between teeth
Porcelain Veneer Process
The first step is a consultation with Dr. Reid at his Lake Tahoe, CA cosmetic dentistry office. It is important to determine if you are good candidate for porcelain veneers and that they will meet your oral health and cosmetic goals. Dr. Reid will evaluate your dental health and discuss your concerns before creating a personalized treatment plan for you.
Dental impressions will be taken and your custom porcelain veneers will be color matched and completed in a dental lab. Dr. Reid uses digital color matching software which brings a level of accuracy to your treatment planning that cannot be achieved with the naked eye and provides customized results that will meet and exceed your expectations for a smile that looks natural.
The next step is to prepare the teeth to be treated by removing as little surface structure as possible. In most cases, we will place temporary veneers on the teeth for comfort and appearance until the final restoration is ready.
Once the porcelain veneers are complete, you will return to our cosmetic dentistry office in Lake Tahoe, CA for the final placement of your restorations. Any necessary last minute adjustments will be made for a comfortable and stable fit.
