What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain bonded to the front of each tooth. Dental veneers are an ideal choice for improving your smile because of their simplicity and versatility. They can cover teeth that are chipped, uneven, worn, or have become discolored with age or lifestyle.
Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. They are translucent with a virtually undetectable appearance that duplicates the features of natural enamel. When bonded to the teeth they are brushed, flossed, and treated just like natural teeth.
Custom fitted veneers for a truly natural appearance
Dental veneers are custom fitted to each tooth. A thin layer of enamel is removed from the tooth for allowance of the veneer. Little or no anesthetic is needed for this process.
A mold is taken of the teeth from which a dental lab fabricates the veneer. In the final visit, the veneer is positioned and bonded with an adhesive that is hardened by applying a laser light.
While the process of placing veneers seems simple, it requires considerable care, skill, and an artistic touch. The artistry is displayed in the final phase in which color, clarity, and fit are integrated with the adjacent teeth. Dr. Morales' passion for perfection is evident in his patients results.
