What are Porcelain Dental Veneers and how do they work?
Dental veneers are very thin, custom-made porcelain coverings fabricated to fit precisely over your existing teeth. They are used to solve a variety of common dental problems including misaligned, stained, broken or chipped teeth. They are also used to fill in gaps between teeth.
Veneers are very versatile and virtually undetectable because they are made to match the color range of surrounding teeth.
Dental veneers are also quite durable and in many cases they can last a lifetime with proper care and if the tooth doesn’t experience any additional trauma.
What will a Porcelain Veneer procedure with Dr. Mirani be like?
Porcelain dental veneers generally require two visits to Dr. Mirani’s Beverly Hills office. During the first visit, Dr. Mirani will discuss the various options for improving your smile’s overall look and appearance. After a detailed conversation with you, Dr. Mirani chooses the type of veneer that best fits with your tooth in color, translucency, and shape as well as your overall smile and face.
During the process, Dr. Mirani buffs off a small amount of tooth’s surface to prepare it for the thickness of the new porcelain veneers. An impression of your teeth will also be taken in order to ensure the veneer’s fit during the manufacturing process. The specifications and impressions are then sent to a lab where the new porcelain veneer is manufactured. Dr. Mirani will also attach a temporary veneer to your tooth before you leave the office in order to protect it and to familiarize you with the feeling of wearing a veneer before the procedure is finalized.
When the veneers come back from the lab, you will also return to Dr. Mirani’s office for a final fit before the veneer is bonded to your tooth. Dr. Mirani will check your porcelain dental veneers against your teeth for shape, color, translucency, and fit. If you are satisfied with your new veneer, it will be permanently bonded to your tooth. At this time, Dr. Mirani will also explain the proper way to care for the veneer at home and through regular in office cleanings. Under normal circumstances the veneer should last for many years and provide you with a confident bright smile.
