Could You Be Ready for Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are one of the best kept secrets to a straighter, more even smile. How does the procedure work? When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Laurence Schneider will evaluate your oral health to determine if porcelain veneers are your best option. Most candidates for porcelain veneers have one or more of the following complaints:
- The front teeth are just slightly crooked.
- The front teeth are permanently discolored.
- The front teeth are cracked or broken.
If you and Dr. Schneider decide that veneers are the right choice for your needs, he will prepare your front teeth by reshaping and trimming the tooth structure. An impression of the area is taken, and customized thin shells of porcelain are created to fit precisely over your front teeth. Dr. Schneider will then use a special bonding material to adhere the porcelain veneers to the front portions of your teeth. When you smile, your porcelain veneers will look just like natural teeth.
