If you are looking for a way to improve your smile, ask us about porcelain veneers! Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that we use to fix minor imperfections in the smile. Chips, cracks, stains, and gaps can all be disguised with this treatment. At Coyne Dentistry, we can help you achieve a beautiful, flawless smile!
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are attached to the front of a tooth. For the most natural-looking smile possible, we design veneers to match the shape and color of your surrounding teeth. Once applied, veneers can brighten your smile and conceal minor blemishes. Veneers are strong, reliable, and discreet. This makes them a popular cosmetic treatment!
What Does the Process Include?
To create your veneers, we will begin by taking pictures of your natural teeth. With these, we can adjust the shape, size, and color of your veneer to seamlessly blend in with your smile. Next, we will send your information to a professional dental lab. The lab will create your veneer within two or three weeks. We will provide you with a temporary restoration while you wait. Once the finished veneer arrives back at our office, it will be time for your second visit.
Before attaching your veneer, we will need to remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your tooth. Don’t worry – this process is harmless and painless! It will help your new restoration bond to your tooth and prevent it from falling off. Once your tooth is ready, your dentist will place the veneer and make any last-minute adjustments. Finally, we will bond the veneer to your tooth with permanent dental glue.
After just a few short weeks you can enjoy your gorgeous new smile!
What is the Difference Between Bonding and Veneers?
Bonding and veneers are both used to correct minor blemishes and imperfections in the smile. Veneers are made from high-quality porcelain. They are the most durable and natural-looking option of the two. The bonding material, on the other hand, is made from tooth-colored resin. This resin begins as a putty that we can mold into shape and harden with a special curing light.
Both options are excellent cosmetic treatments. However, although they are more expensive, veneers often last longer and are more natural-looking than bonding treatments.
