About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are bonded on the front of the teeth after some etching of the existing enamel is done. This helps create a strong bond. These veneers are stronger than that of composite veneers. A consultation can be done with our cosmetic dentist in order to decide the best type of veneers for your situation. Veneers are ideal for cosmetic dental repair and provide form and function at the same time. They are not a great choice for covering cavities and do not replace the need for extensive dental work either.
The veneer procedure takes several visits to our Austin, Texas, office. First, if a consultation where we discuss the goal for your veneers. The dentist examines the existing teeth and ensures that they are appropriate for your oral health situation. This is an irreversible dental process.
During the preparation period, a dentist will remove a small amount of the enamel from the surface of the patient’s teeth. A local anesthetic is used. From there, impressions of the teeth are made, which are sent to a lab to construct the veneers. During the final visit, the bonding process happens. The teeth are prepared for the veneers by cleaning, polishing, and etching them to allow for the strongest bonding.
Cement is applied to the veneer and placed atop the front of the teeth. Adjusting can be done from there before a special light beam is placed atop the new veneers in order to harden and cure the cement. Any excess cement is then removed. The patient’s bite is evaluated, and any last-minute adjustments are made. A follow-up visit is scheduled for a few weeks later to ensure that the gums are healthy.
