If you are often aware of your chipped, discolored, or misaligned teeth, porcelain dental veneers may be the answer to transforming your smile. Made of durable ceramic materials, dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells custom-shaped and bonded to one or more of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are a fast but durable treatment used in cosmetic dentistry that provides a less intrusive alternative to dental crowns or dental implants. At Boger Dental, we can help you construct the smile you’ve always wanted in just two to three visits.
While minor issues such as small chips or cracks may be resolved with a composite filling, porcelain dental veneers are a more durable solution for larger chips and more substantial problems.
Correct abnormal overlaps or gaps between teeth
Shield worn teeth
Conceal teeth discolored from root canals, fillings or medicine
Cover uneven or irregularly shaped teeth
Good oral hygiene extends the durability of your porcelain veneers.
A mouth guard protects your dental veneers from teeth grinding at night.
Porcelain veneers may break if you bite down on hard objects like ice.
Remember broken dental veneers must be replaced since tooth reshaping is irreversible.
Tooth Preparation: The natural tooth is prepared by removing merely a coating of external enamel. This reshaping is necessary so that the added thickness of the veneer doesn’t abnormally protrude. A mild anesthetic is suggested during this preparation process to make your experience more enjoyable.
Porcelain Veneer Preparation: We will take an impression of your prepared tooth to help us custom-design a porcelain veneer to perfectly cover your natural tooth.
Bonding Process: Using a strong adhesive made of resin cement, we will bond the prepared porcelain veneer to the anterior of the natural tooth, leaving you with an instantly improved smile.
