What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a permanent dental restoration that can be used to correct a range of cosmetic concerns. Veneers are like a thin ceramic shell that attaches to the front and sides of the tooth covering up cosmetic blemishes and help to protect the tooth from further damage. A dental veneer is permanently bonded to a prepared tooth and can be used to treat one tooth or several teeth.
Dr. Reid is a nationally recognized cosmetic dentist, offering a full range of treatment options including porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers, when expertly designed and placed, can provide a permanent solution to a variety of dental health and cosmetic concerns:
- Fix gaps between teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked or misshaped teeth
- Change the shape or length of teeth
- Cover stained or discolored teeth
Porcelain Veneers: What to Expect
Dr. Reid will meet with you to thoroughly evaluate your dental health and discuss your cosmetic goals before recommending a personalized treatment plan. To ensure an outcome that is beautifully matched to your unique smile, 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 porcelain veneers process will involve two to three visits to our Tahoe City, CA area cosmetic dentistry office as your beautiful new smile is carefully designed, created and placed for a comfortable result.
Dr. Reid will begin with dental impressions to be used in the custom fabrication of your porcelain veneers. He will work with you to choose the right color, size, and shape so that your veneer teeth will blend seamlessly with your natural smile. The next step is to prepare the teeth to be treated by removing as little surface structure as possible. Temporary restorations may be placed if necessary until your custom veneers are ready to be placed.
Once complete, your new porcelain veneers will be permanently secured by Dr. Reid. Any necessary last minute adjustments will be made for a comfortable and stable fit.
