WHAT ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS?
Porcelain dental veneers are thin ceramic covers that are placed in front of teeth that are damaged, misaligned, or stained to correct cosmetic issues and create the smile that you desire. The first step of porcelain veneers is to take a digital impression of your teeth that will enable us to create a prototype of your future desired smile. It will also help us evaluate your bite from different angles.
After the veneer is designed, we will try the porcelain shells on your teeth to ensure the fit is perfect, and also the outcome is completely desirable. They will be attached to your tooth structure with a very strong and biocompatible cement that is extremely durable. While we are waiting for our master ceramist to hand-fabricate each veneer, you will be wearing a set of plastic temporaries that duplicate your future smile. These temporaries are extremely comfortable and functional. Some of our patients even do photoshoots with them.
Dr. Borzoo uses a process called facially driven aesthetics in order to design your smile. As a result, all his porcelain veneers are very natural looking and unique to each patient. He designs veneers that look both beautiful and natural. Porcelain veneers are very much color stable and do not stain over time; that gives your smile vibrancy and brilliance even after decades.
Maintaining porcelain veneers is no different than your natural teeth. They require 4 to 6-month cleaning and regular hygiene checks. There are many different treatments available to extend the life span of porcelain veneers.
