Giving You a BEAUTIFUL Smile
Cosmetic dental procedures are often thought of as being a dental service that is reserved for Hollywood. Porcelain veneers are one option of cosmetic dentistry and Dr. Weisz can discuss your options and see if veneers are a good solution for you.
Placing Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are a thin, semi-transparent tooth shaped "shell" that are custom made of porcelain. They are permanently bonded to your natural teeth which are located in your "smile zone" to enhance their shape, color, length or size. Veneers can fix gaps between teeth and/or improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, misshaped or misaligned.
- The teeth are cleaned and any old surface restorations are removed.
- An impression is taken of the prepped tooth and sent to a lab where the veneer is fabricated.
- The veneer is applied with bonding resin and a curing light.
- After the veneer is set, it is shaped and polished to look like a natural tooth.
Veneers vs. Braces to Straighten Teeth
With some porcelain veneers, it may be possible to give you straighter teeth in just a matter of days instead of years like it would take wearing traditional braces. With this procedure you virtually eliminate the overall treatment time as well as the potential of having uncomfortable brackets, unsightly metal wire and the regular adjustment appointments typically associated with braces. Dr. Weisz specializes in this ground-breaking technique and will be happy to help you create a perfect smile for you.
