Porcelain veneers are small, wafer-thin, tooth-colored coverings that are built out of incredibly durable porcelain. Veneers are designed to fit perfectly over your existing teeth for a more aesthetic smile. Essentially, veneers are placed over your teeth to cover up imperfections like stains, gaps, and minor damage. Think veneers might be the right way to spruce up your smile? Call us today!
The process of veneer application is simple, non-invasive, and only takes about two appointments. First, a very thin layer of enamel is removed from your teeth (this layer is equal in thickness to the veneers). Then, images and molds of your teeth are taken and sent to a third-party lab, where your porcelain veneers will be manufactured. This process takes about 2-3 weeks, so you will get a set of temporary veneers to protect your teeth, and be sent home. When your veneers come in, Dr. Nguyen will make sure they fit perfect, and he’ll use a dental adhesive to cement them in place. You’ll leave our office with a beautiful, new smile!
