Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are custom made to go on front teeth. Dr. Hatch and his team will sculpt your porcelain veneers in house during your appointment. Veneers can fix the appearance of your teeth to help correct crooked teeth, severely stained teeth, chipped teeth, teeth with gaps and many other dental flaws.
The placement of veneers is generally a two-visit process that requires the dentist to prepare the teeth by removing some of the enamel to ensure that the veneer fits and looks natural. An impression will also be taken to determine the size and shape of the veneers. This impression is sent to a dental laboratory where they will create a custom porcelain veneer. During your second visit to the dentist, the veneer will be placed by bonding it to the existing the teeth to give you a beautiful smile.
After receiving veneers, you must maintain great oral hygiene. Your new porcelain veneers should be treated like normal teeth and your dentist will give you special instructions on how to brush and floss your new veneers.
