If you would like to improve your smile in a fast and effective way, porcelain veneers may be a good option for you.
* Large or small chips
Porcelain is brittle, so wouldn’t the veneers break?
By itself dental porcelain veneers are brittle, but once they have been bonded to a tooth they are strong and durable. Given normal daily use, the veneers will not crack. Durability with veneers depends on two factors:
* How well the cosmetic dentist aligned the position of your bite; and
What is the veneers procedure like?
Initial models or casts are made of your teeth and sent to the dental lab to make a wax design (wax up). Then in two treatment appointments the changes are created.
Dr. Klein will prepare the teeth designated for veneers. That involves removing a very small amount of the enamel to make space for the veneers. He will then take digital photos and an impression of the area. We will make plastic temporary veneers so you will be able to test drive your new smile right away.
Cosmetic Dentist, Dr Klein will attach your veneers temporarily to check the fit and color. When you and he are both happy with the result he will begin the permanent bonding. Because of our custom process with the lab we get a great color match.
Dental bonding can treat many of the same problems that are treated by porcelain veneers. The choice between these two techniques is yours to make with Dr. Klein's advice.
* Porcelain veneers produce a long-lasting, more sophisticated result and more advanced changes in color or alignment are possible. Veneers can significantly improve the strength of a tooth.
