What is a porcelain veneer?
A veneer is commonly used to describe a facing that can cover an imperfection. This is exactly how a porcelain veneer works. The porcelain restoration is a thin covering that the dentist will fabricate for the patient with a ceramist and laboratory to ensure it matches the patient’s existing teeth. Then, it is bonded in place over the natural tooth to provide the coverage needed to disguise common imperfections that impact the teeth near the front of the smile, including:
- Stained teeth
- Chipped/cracked teeth
- Broken teeth
- Spaced/gapped teeth
- Crooked teeth
Am I a candidate for a porcelain veneer?
Dr. Troy A. Schmedding will first evaluate a patient and listen to him or her about the options they are considering for smile enhancement. If a porcelain veneer is a proper fit for the patient and the patient decides to move forward with treatment, then the natural tooth is prepared by removing a thin portion of the enamel. Then, impressions are made and sent to a ceramist, along with instructions for the final size, shape, and color of the porcelain veneer when complete. After the veneer has been returned to the dental office, patients will return to Dr. Troy A. Schmedding to have the final restoration bonded onto the prepared tooth to complete the process.
