Porcelain veneers are thin, strong ceramic shells that are bonded to the surface of your teeth to conceal a variety of cosmetic flaws. Real enamel is translucent and light-absorbing, so our porcelain veneers are designed to create the same effect so that your new smile looks completely natural. The color, shape, and size of your teeth can be easily altered with our high-quality restorations to reveal a beautiful red-carpet-ready smile that you love.
The porcelain veneers procedure is typically completed in two to three visits to our office. Your cosmetic dentist in Altamonte Springs will address every detail to ensure that we achieve exquisite results that you’re proud to show off.
If you’re curious about getting porcelain veneers and feel like it’s a great solution to your cosmetic needs, your first step will be to schedule a consultation. During this visit, we’ll ask you several questions so we can develop a good understanding of what results you would like to see and the concerns you have. Our team of dental professionals will take several images of your mouth so we can map out a detailed treatment plan to achieve a beautiful transformation. Once we go over the process with you, you’ll have all of the information you need to determine whether to move forward with the veneer process.
Once you determine that porcelain veneers are right for you, we will begin the process by preparing your natural teeth. Each of your restorations will be designed to cover the visible portions of your teeth. In order to compensate for the thickness of these shells, we will need to remove a small portion of your natural enamel so the veneers will lay flush with the surrounding area.
After we prepare your teeth, we will capture every detail of the shape them using our iTero Digital Impression System. That way, you won’t need to deal with the uncomfortable experience of biting down on putty. With this advanced technology, we’re able to create full 3-D impressions of your teeth for maximized precision and accuracy.
After we’ve captured the impressions, we will send all of the information we’ve collected off to our dental laboratory, including the shade of your natural enamel. There, they will begin crafting your restorations to our specifications. Before you leave our office, we will also fit you with temporary veneers until your permanent ones arrive.
When your veneers arrive from our dental laboratory, we’ll call you in for your final appointment. Before bonding each of the shells to your teeth, we’ll make sure that they fit all of our color, shape, and size specifications. If necessary, we may also make some slight alterations to make sure they look perfect. Once they meet our standards, we will clean, polish, and etch the fronts of your teeth for a strong and secure bond. After the cement is cured, we’ll check your bite and make any final adjustments before sending you home with your brand-new set of pearly whites!
