Natural-looking porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for covering teeth that are chipped, discolored, or slightly misaligned. The veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is custom-made to fit perfectly over the front of a tooth. Because the porcelain is translucent, it lets the color of the existing tooth shine through for a completely natural appearance.
The CEREC® 3D Porcelain Veneers Process
We first prepare the teeth to receive the porcelain veneers by buffing the top layer of enamel. Through the use of CEREC® 3D technology at our practice, we can make and place your porcelain veneers during a single visit to our office. The procedure typically takes two or more visits over several weeks. However, once we have prepared your tooth, we use CEREC® to make a digital impression of it and then craft your veneers in our office. We can then bond them onto your teeth during the same visit.
If your front teeth have small gaps between them or are slightly crooked, we can use porcelain veneers for instant orthodontics.
