Why should I consider veneers?

Veneers are a very thin layer of porcelain that helps re-create the look of your natural teeth. Before bonding the veneers to your existing teeth, one of the qualified dentists at Portale Dental goes tooth-by-tooth to fit each veneer. Veneers correct imperfections such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They likewise help fortify frail teeth

Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to match your natural enamel better. One of the experienced dental team members explains your options and helps you select the best type of veneers for your needs.

What is the process for getting veneers?

Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you come back for a second appointment. Then, one of the skilled cosmetic dental experts shapes your existing teeth to prepare them for the veneers by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the surface. Once your teeth are prepared, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth and sends it to the lab, where technicians will make your custom veneers.

When your veneers are finished, you return to the office, and your veneers are fitted one by one over your existing teeth. Your teeth are cleaned and etched to prepare them for the bonding process. A dental expert then applies a unique adhesive and light source which makes the cement bond securely to the porcelain. In no time your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile!
