Veneers, or cosmetic teeth veneers, are an ultra-thin shell of porcelain or composite resin material. It is bonded to the front of a tooth. Veneers are ideal for improving the tooth’s Aesthetic appearance and may also be used to protect damage to the tooth’s surface. Porcelain veneers may be fabricated in a laboratory in Westchase and bonded to the tooth. Moreover, there are cases where a composite veneer may be directly built up in the mouth.
The procedure begins as follows-
You visit our Westchase office to determine if veneers are the best option for you. If they are not, we will help you find alternative solutions available. At this time, it is critical to communicate the cosmetic dentistry improvements you would like to be made to your teeth. After analysing your smile, we will create a custom treatment plan specially for you.
At your next appointment, we will begin to prepare your teeth for your veneers. The teeth will be lightly buffed to remove a thin layer. If you want, you may receive local anesthesia. Dr. Castellano, your cosmetic veneer dentist, will carefully bond and sculpt the composite material to your teeth and make the procedure as convenient and comfortable as possible.
For porcelain teeth veneers, Dr. Castellano uses the prestigious da Vinci veneers. They can be seen on the television shows “Extreme Makeover” and “The Swan.” da Vinci veneers provide the best in cosmetic dentistry and can literally change your entire smile within a few visits. We will take a mould of your teeth and send it to the lab for fabrication. If desired, we can 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 Westchase office. Dr. Castellano will remove your temporary veneers, if necessary, and lightly place your new, permanent veneers on your teeth to ensure they fit and the color matches perfectly. It is important to concentrate to the color when you look at the veneers on your teeth. If necessary, your cosmetic dentist can adjust the shade of your veneers with the shade of cement used to bond them to the tooth. We will bond them to your teeth once you approve your new porcelain veneers. 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 cleanse the tooth with special chemicals, apply the veneer with light-sensitive cement, and harden the bond with a light beam.
