This post from Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia focuses on porcelain veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.
Porcelain veneers are custom made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can remedy many cosmetic issues such as:
- Teeth that are misshapen
- Teeth that are too short
- Teeth that are misaligned
- Gaps between teeth
To begin the veneer procedure, we will make a model of your teeth. Then, a skilled technician will use the model to fabricate them. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed. Today’s veneer process leaves most of your healthy tooth structure.
