A bad Porcelain veneers take skill. From the first initial consultation to the final placement, porcelain veneers are best left to a skilled cosmetic dentist who is serious about continued education.
Cosmetic Dentistry and General Dentistry are Not The Same
Just because the American Dental Association doesn’t recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty doesn’t mean it isn’t one. Dentist’s fresh out of school probably won’t be adept at porcelain veneer placement unless they specialized in it while taking general dentistry classes in dental school.
A general dentist fills cavities, places dental crowns, builds bridges for missing teeth and probably places inlays and onlays. What most general dentists aren’t well adept at is porcelain veneer placement.
Porcelain Veneers Placement is Key
According to Delray Beach cosmetic dentist Dr. George Sanchez, improper veneer placement causes damage to other teeth. A bad cement causes problems for adjoining teeth. Patient comfort is of the utmost importance and if a veneer is rough on the backside, it’s annoying.
Your Porcelain Veneers Consultation
During your scheduled consultation with Dr. George, an overall assessment will be conducted including digital photos and x-rays both before and after enamel removal. Because a portion of the tooth is removed for fit and placement, the veneer procedure is permanent.
After tooth preparation, Dr. George and his team will make a temporary veneer while your permanent one is manufactured, taking about two weeks.
When your new porcelain veneers are ready, the magic begins.
Your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist begins by checking your veneers for color and fit before cementing in place, finally curing with a light or laser to harden the bond.
With Dr. George’s help you are ready to show off your polished veneers to the world.
