Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers, are an effective way to quickly correct the minor dental defects of your teeth such as the shape, colour and overall appearance. They provide extra resilience and strength just like regular tooth enamel, but have a higher resistance to stains caused by cigarette smoke, coffee or tea. In addition, the custom made aspect of porcelain veneers make it very difficult to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Dr. Shirley Salazar Dentistry specializes in dental veneers and other cosmetic dentistry services.
After booking an appointment, the procedure will begin by removing a thin amount of enamel on your teeth to allow for the added thickness of dental veneers. Next, a mold for your veneers will be taken of your teeth and sent to the lab for the fabrication.
Once made, the dental veneers will be placed on the surface of your teeth with glycerin or water to check the fit and colour. After they are confirmed to match and align, your teeth will be cleaned and a special cement will be pressed between the tooth and veneer. A visible laser will then harden the cement, restoring your perfect smile.
