Porcelain Veneers Makeover

Porcelain veneers are constructed from translucent dental porcelain, which are thin coverings placed on the front surfaces of your teeth to mask any number of dental imperfections. Porcelain veneers have become extremely popular with cosmetic dentistry professionals and patients alike because of their incredibly natural aesthetics, durability, and ability to make even discolored, crooked, or oddly shaped teeth look even and beautiful. Their versatility has even earned them the nickname “instant smile makeover”, since this single procedure can take the place of multi-procedure cosmetic treatment plans.

GETTING STARTED

Porcelain Veneers Procedure

Before recommending porcelain veneers, Dr. Goldberg will first conduct a thorough examination to ensure that your teeth are healthy and strong enough to support porcelain veneers. Once you have received clearance to proceed, Dr. Goldberg will remove a minuscule amount of enamel from the front of your teeth to accommodate the veneer. This step is crucial to achieving a natural-looking smile. A no-preparation variety of veneers has recently been introduced to the market, but Dr. Goldberg has chosen not to offer them, because they lack the durability and versatility of traditional porcelain veneers.

NEXT STEPS

Ready to Restore Your Smile

After preparing the enamel, Dr. Goldberg will take impressions of your teeth in preparation for the porcelain veneers. The impressions, along with Dr. Goldberg’s design instructions, will guide the dental lab technicians as they create your veneers. Once they have come back from the lab, you will return to our office to have your veneers bonded into place. Our turnaround time for receiving veneers back from the lab usually takes 2 weeks. However, we can accommodate rush cases (3-4 day turnaround) for an additional fee.

CARE & MAINTENANCE

Designing and Crafting a Natural-Looking Smile

The very best porcelain veneers don’t look like veneers; they look like real teeth. Achieving a truly natural look requires two elements:

  • A skilled cosmetic dentist. Dr. Goldberg takes into account your facial features, the size and shape of your jaw and mouth, the appearance of your natural teeth, and your personal preferences when designing your veneers.
  • A trusted dental lab. We partner with several offsite dental labs whose skilled technicians have years of experience fabricating porcelain veneers and other dental restorations. The lab we choose depends on which material works best for a given patient. Dr. Goldberg believes in providing the right treatment for the right patient, so matching up a patient’s needs with the right dental lab is of the utmost importance.

With proper care, your veneers can provide you with years of gorgeous smiles. Continue to floss your teeth as normal and brush with non-abrasive toothpaste after meals. Visit Dr. Goldberg for your regularly scheduled dental checkups and talk to him immediately if you feel a veneer loosening.
