Celebrities with perfect Hollywood smiles often use porcelain veneers. These type of veneers are made of wafer-thin porcelain that is cemented to the front side of the teeth. Veneers can cover up chipped, stained, and misaligned teeth. You want to have porcelain veneers bonded to your teeth by an expert dentist because the preparation and bonding have to be perfect.

Most patients don’t know that not every dentist has the training or experience to place porcelain veneers. Any dentist can check your mouth for cavities, but it takes a skilled cosmetic dentist with years of experience to fit porcelain veneers correctly.
Our dentist will first do a thorough exam to check your mouth for gum disease or infection. It is never a good idea to bond porcelain veneers to teeth that are decayed or have gum infections. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, we need to treat these problems before placing porcelain veneers. You don’t want veneers covering up a serious issue.
Our dentist will also check for signs of tooth grinding, which is something people may do while asleep. Our dentist can help by giving you a protective nightguard. If we don’t fix your teeth grinding problem then your veneers can become cracked and chipped.
Before placing porcelain veneers, teeth are usually prepped. To do this, our dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. The porcelain veneers will then be attached to this rough tooth surface. Unfortunately, there are dentists out there who may remove too much of the tooth during the prepping. This can lead to tooth sensitivity and future dental problems. Our dentist always removes the smallest amount of tooth enamel necessary for porcelain veneers. If your teeth are not suitable for porcelain veneers, our dentist will let you know instead of going ahead with the veneers and risking your dental health.
Our office also provides high-tech imaging so you can see exactly what you will be getting before the procedure ever begins. You will not get any surprises because we give you a preview of your future smile with porcelain veneers. We want your smile to be picture perfect.
Some dentists may botch gum line asymmetry, which is when the height and shape of the gum line is not scanned correctly. Other dentists may not shape porcelain veneers so that they fit the teeth perfectly. This can be time consuming, but it’s important to get it right for the patient’s dental health. Some dentists don’t use quality materials, which can result in staining the porcelain veneers.
Our dentist will provide you with temporary veneers to wear while your permanent veneers are being crafted. You can try out your new smile and get used to the feeling of porcelain veneers.
