Everyone wants to enjoy the benefits that come with a beautiful smile. However, if your smile is imperfect, you may find yourself feeling much more self-conscious about the way you look when socializing with others. At the practice of Dr. Baban Mahal, we are committed to ensuring you have access to cosmetic dentistry procedures that help you improve the appearance of your smile–including porcelain veneers.
Understanding how porcelain veneers work
Dr. Baban Mahal describes porcelain veneers as facings that are bonded over the front of a tooth to cover one or more imperfections. This may include permanent staining, chips and cracks, or even gaps between the front teeth. They work because they cover the problem while matching the rest of the smile thanks to customization. They are typically chosen over other options, including composite resin bonding, orthodontic work, and porcelain crowns. Your dentist can help you decide if veneers are best for your unique needs.
How long does it take to obtain porcelain veneers?
There is a process required in order to obtain porcelain veneers that you will learn about when you start their journey. Dr. Baban Mahal and her team will first evaluate you to determine if you are a good fit for veneers before preparing the tooth. A very thin portion of enamel is removed and roughened to ensure the final veneer will bond to the tooth. An impression is made, creating a mold of the natural tooth to ensure proper fit. A ceramist fabricates the final veneer with the dentist’s information to create a restoration that best fits the size, shape, and color that you need. A temporary may be placed until your restoration is back at the dental office and ready for bonding. The entire process can take a week or two to complete–but you will enjoy your new restoration for many years with proper care.
