Porcelain Veneers Take Skill for an Accurate Fit

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.

Choosing Between Porcelain Veneers and Dental Bonding

If you are considering porcelain veneers, but have also thought about cosmetic dental bonding, there are some things to think about before you schedule an appointment with your Delray Beach dentist.

According to Dr. George Sanchez, both dental veneers and cosmetic dental bonding will give you a beautiful smile. However, there are differences between the two.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are used to repair chipped, cracked, and damaged teeth. If you have teeth that cannot be lightened with professional teeth whitening products, porcelain veneers are a great choice. Gappy teeth and teeth that are too long or too short are perfect candidates for porcelain veneers.

Keep in mind that dental veneers are permanent. Your dentist in Delray Beach explains that a portion of your enamel needs to be removed to make way for your new veneers. Removing a small amount of enamel gives your new porcelain veneers a natural appearance. Enamel removal prevents teeth from looking to big and bulky.

Porcelain veneers also require two or three dental appointments. The first will be your consultation. If you are a fit for dental veneers, Dr. George will take impressions that are sent to a dental lab for manufacture. During this time, your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist may recommend temporary veneers for unsightly teeth.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Although not as strong as dental veneers, which can last up to 20 years with proper care, cosmetic dental bonding is less expensive than veneers. Bonding is also much quicker with most restorations taking place in a single dental appointment.

Dental bonding is applied in the office and is matched to the rest of your teeth. Dr. George, who will mold the bonding material to create the perfect tooth, applies the resin to your teeth. Much like a sculptor, your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach has the skills to give you a beautiful, natural looking smile with cosmetic dental bonding.

Time to Make an Appointment for Porcelain Veneers or Dental Bonding
