Veneers are an ultra-thin shell of porcelain or composite resin material that is bonded to the front of your teeth. Veneers are ideal for improving the tooth’s aesthetic appearance and also are used to protect damage to the tooth’s surface. Veneers are a perfect way to make sure your teeth are always looking their best!
You start by visiting our office to determine if veneers are the best option for you. If they are not, we will help you find a viable alternative solution. If we need to choose an alternative, it is critical to communicate the cosmetic solution you would like to be made to your teeth. After analyzing your teeth, we will create a custom treatment plan specifically for you.
At your next appointment, we will begin to prepare your teeth for your veneers. The teeth will then be lightly buffed to polish them up. If you want, you may receive local numbing to make the procedure less less stressful. Dr. Castellano will carefully bond and sculpt the composite material to your teeth and make the procedure as convenient and comfortable as possible.
Dr. Castellano uses prestigious daVinci veneers with his procedures. They can be seen on certain television shows like “Extreme Makeover” and “The Swan.” DaVinci veneers provide the best in cosmetic dentistry and can literally change your entire smile within a few visits! We can also create temporary veneers for you to wear until your permanent ones are read.
Once your porcelain veneers have been sculpted in the laboratory, you will return to our office for the final steps of the procedure. If necessary, Dr. Castellano will remove your temporary veneers and place your new, permanent veneers on your teeth to ensure they fit and the color matches perfectly. If necessary, the dentist will be able t adjust the shade of your veneers with the shade of cement used to bond them to the tooth. Because veneers are individually sculpted for you in the laboratory, it is nearly impossible to notice a difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Your cosmetic dentist will clean the tooth with special chemicals, apply the veneer, and harden the bond for the final step!
