Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are custom-made, thin ceramic shells that are bonded directly on the surface of the patient’s teeth. In Santa Rosa, patients of Dr. Harry Albers prefer the use of porcelain veneers because they are very natural looking and, at the same time, are able to offer a great option for restoring teeth that are otherwise chipped, cracked, or uneven.

When teeth become damaged beyond repair, or can no longer be restored using conventional methods, a porcelain veneer could be the best possible option for the patient. They can be custom crafted according to each patient’s personal requirements so that they are the perfect fit every time. And because they are made from porcelain, they are virtually impossible to detect because they resemble the color, luminosity, and composition of natural teeth very closely. They are stain resistant and do not require much enamel removal compared to other more invasive restorations.

During the initial consultation, a complete smile analysis will be carried out to help formulate a treatment plan for each patient. veneers facialThis is the stage where the patient has to outline his desired outcomes so that the dentist may evaluate the most effective way to achieve them. In preparation, the patient may elect to have local anesthesia administered so that pain or discomfort is avoided during the procedure. A portion of the tooth’s enamel, approximately the same thickness as the veneer, will be pared down to be able to accommodate the restoration. An actual mold of the patient’s teeth will be made and sent to a dental laboratory and this will be the basis for the actual veneers. During the waiting period, while the veneers are being made, the dentist may fit the patient temporary veneers to use. Once the final veneers are done, the dentist will check them for proper fit and color and make adjust if necessary. The surface of the indicated tooth will be cleaned and etched to improve the bonding process, after which the dental veneer will be cemented in place and cured with ultraviolet light.
