Elevate Your Smile with Timeless Elegance
Welcome to Kathy Cosmetic Dentistry, where we believe in the artistry of smiles. Unveil the beauty within with our exquisite porcelain veneers, meticulously crafted to redefine your dental aesthetic.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. Crafted from high-quality porcelain, these veneers are designed to mimic the natural translucency, texture, and color of your teeth.
Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?
- Aesthetic Transformation: Porcelain veneers are a versatile solution for enhancing the appearance of your smile. They effectively address various concerns, including discoloration, chipping, gaps, and misalignment, providing a comprehensive aesthetic transformation.
- Natural Look and Feel: The advanced materials used in porcelain veneers create a remarkably natural look. The translucent quality of porcelain closely resembles that of natural tooth enamel, ensuring a seamless blend with your existing teeth.
- Durability and Longevity: Porcelain veneers are known for their durability and longevity. With proper care and maintenance, they can last for many years, providing you with a timeless solution for a radiant smile.
The Porcelain Veneer Process:
- Consultation: Your journey to a radiant smile begins with a consultation. Our dental experts will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and customize a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
- Preparation: A minimal amount of enamel is gently removed from the tooth's surface to accommodate the veneer. Impressions are then taken to create a precise mold for the fabrication of your custom veneers.
- Craftsmanship: Our skilled technicians meticulously craft your porcelain veneers, ensuring each shell is a perfect match for your unique smile. We prioritize details such as color, shape, and size to create a seamless, natural-looking result.
- Placement: Once your veneers are ready, they are delicately placed onto your prepared teeth using a strong bonding adhesive. Our goal is to achieve optimal fit, alignment, and comfort for a stunning and harmonious smile.
Why Choose Kathy Cosmetic Dentistry for Porcelain Veneers?
- Our conversation begins by understanding exactly what the patient desires in changing their smile with dental veneers.
- We conduct a thorough examination, including x-rays, comprehensive exams, photography, and intraoral scans. These diagnostic tools help us digitally design the smile line, tooth proportions, and midline by considering the patient's facial features. This allows us to create a treatment plan, sometimes involving other aesthetic procedures like gum contouring or Invisalign, to achieve the perfect smile in a minimally invasive way.
- The digital design is then shared with our lab technician, who fabricates a mock-up architectural design.
- A direct acrylic template is created from the mock-up design and tried over the intact teeth in the patient's mouth as a trial stage. This provides the patient with a direct visualization of the smile design, allowing us to reevaluate and make any necessary changes.
- The development of sophisticated techniques for esthetic dental porcelain veneers relies on close cooperation between the patient, Kathy Cosmetic Dentistry, and the lab technician. Patients also have the opportunity to visit the dental laboratory and provide input to the ceramist for individual documentation about the shade and special characteristics needed to match the smile design with the patient's face.
- When adequate diagnostic steps have been strictly applied, practical restorative procedures can begin with maximum confidence. Teeth preparation is performed minimally invasively, following the mock-up design. Digital impressions are taken through intraoral scans and sent to the lab for fabrication. Provisionalization will then occur.
- After receiving the dental porcelain veneers from the dental lab, they are placed on the teeth with a try-in paste. Patients have a third opportunity to evaluate and request any changes to the smile design. If no changes are needed, the dental veneers will be delicately delivered and bonded to the teeth.
