Designing Your Smile
The dentist will evaluate your facial shape, dimensions, and skin coloring, then design custom porcelain veneers to complement and enhance your overall appearance. We’ll meticulously plan each detail of your restorations, including length, width, overall shape, and color. Then, a master technician at a respected dental lab will make your veneers by hand. The porcelain used to create custom veneers looks and feels completely natural, and it never stains.
Expect two visits to complete the design and placement process. We’ll apply temporary veneers while your custom restorations are being fabricated. When your permanent porcelain veneers are completed, we’ll bond them in place to create your stunning smile.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin sheaths of dental porcelain that are used to cover cosmetic flaws like chips, cracks, stains, and gaps in the smile. They are fitted over the front surfaces of teeth, and they can provide a flawless result in just a few appointments. They’re a great treatment option if you want to quickly and conservatively improve almost any aspect of your smile’s appearance.
Different Types of Porcelain Veneers
At our dental office in Pomona, we offer both traditional porcelain veneers and minimal prep veneers to ensure patients receive the right treatment for their unique situation.
Traditional Porcelain Veneers
Traditional porcelain veneers are about the size of a fingernail before we place them. They require us to remove a small amount of surface tooth enamel in order to allow your veneers to sit in place without altering the line of your smile.
In addition to porcelain veneers, we offer minimal-prep veneers, including the DURAthins brand. Prior to placement, these veneers are about the size of a contact lens, and they don’t typically require the removal of any tooth enamel. Minimal-prep veneers aren’t right for every case. Ask about them at your cosmetic dentistry consultation, and we’ll help you find the best solution for your smile.
What is the Procedure Like?
Porcelain veneers need to be placed in two dental appointments. During the initial visit, we prepare your teeth by removing surface enamel for traditional veneers. If you choose minimal-prep veneers, we will not usually need to remove any dental structure. Then, we capture bite impressions and design your porcelain veneers. If we’ve removed tooth enamel for a traditional veneer, we’ll place a temporary to protect your smile between visits. Our dental lab will craft your custom veneer over the course of about a week. When the final product is returned to our dental lab, we’ll call you to schedule your second appointment. During this second office visit, we’ll simply exchange your temporary veneer (if necessary), and place the final restoration, giving you a flawless smile.
