Beautiful Smiles with Porcelain Veneers
Teeth can find themselves suffering from a wide variety of issues. Procedures to fix each one can be costly and take a large amount of time. Porcelain veneers are a simple way to address a variety of dental issues, such as:
- Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Teeth with obvious gaps
Porcelain veneers in Lincoln can address all these issues at once and assure a patient has a bright, confident smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are extremely-thin ceramic coverings that are bonded to the front of your teeth in order to improve their appearance. They offer a much less invasive way to fix a multitude of cosmetic issues, and can enhance a patient’s teeth both aesthetically and functionally. The high-quality ceramic material is able to replicate a natural tooth’s color, shape, size, and strength. It is also non-porous, making it stain-resistant. It assures that you will have teeth that are pleasing to look at and can be trusted day to day.
What Is It Like To Get Porcelain Veneers?
The procedure to get porcelain veneers is quick and relatively painless. When you first come into the office, Dr. Chris or Dr. Claire will take a look at your teeth and gums to determine if veneers are the best solution for your smile. You need a minimal amount of healthy dental structure in order to support the veneers.
If they decide to proceed, they will start by buffing off a very small portion of your natural enamel, only about 2mm. This is about the thickness of contact lens. This allows your teeth to have enough room for the veneers. They will then use an advanced scanner to take a 3D image of your teeth, which will be used by the in-house CEREC technology to both design and fabricate your veneers. Most practices take at least 2 visits a week apart to complete your veneers, but we are able to do it in one visit and with higher accuracy due to this technology.
Once the veneers have been made, one of the doctors will use a composite resin to firmly bond them to your teeth. You won’t even have to leave the chair during the entire process. Afterwards, simple brushing and flossing can help maintain the veneers for many years.
Attention to Detail
Every set of veneers is custom made for each patient. This allows people to choose the degree of change they want for their teeth, whether it be subtle or dramatic. A personal touch is that one of our hygienists, LaTasha, will take the extra time to make sure they are perfectly color-matched to the rest of your teeth.
