Porcelain veneers are used to address both restorative and cosmetic dental concerns. This type of restoration is a custom fit and color matched ultra-thin ceramic shell that fits over the affected tooth and is securely bonded in place for a permanent result.
The high-quality material used for porcelain veneers is also durable and stain resistant. They are one of the most natural looking smile makeover options, reflecting light much like natural teeth and made to complement your appearance and smile.
Dr. Evans and Dr. Ziemba may recommend the use of porcelain veneers to correct a range of dental concerns including:
- Damaged teeth (teeth that are chipped or cracked)
- Misshapen teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Teeth that appear too long or too short
Porcelain Veneers Springfield, MA
The placement of porcelain veneers is a multi-stepped procedure that yields long-lasting results.
Step 1: Dr. Evans or Dr. Ziemba will begin your veneer process by conducting a one-on-one consultation with you. Your dentist will discuss your goals, analyze your oral health, and work with you to build a personalized treatment plan.
Step 2: Porcelain veneers are designed as a permanent solution for addressing cosmetic blemishes. On your second visit, your dentist will prepare your teeth for the dental veneers. Dr. Evans or Dr. Ziemba will remove a specified amount of tooth structure from each tooth that will receive a dental veneer. Then, molds will be taken of the prepared teeth and used to create your custom veneers. The dental veneer material will be color matched to your adjacent teeth and sent with the molds to a dental lab. Most patients will receive temporary veneers to wear until their final restorations return from the lab.
Step 3: Your third visit to our Springfield, MA area dentist office will be for your final fitting of the porcelain veneer. Your dentist will place the veneer and allow you to approve the final restoration. Final adjustments for a proper fit will be made, and then the veneer will be bonded into place.
With proper oral hygiene and continued commitment to biannual dental health exams, your dental veneers could last upwards of 20 years.
