With experience and contemporary techniques, Dr. Johnson can deliver the smile of your dreams – perhaps with a single procedure, porcelain veneers.

Benefits of Veneers

Expect veneers to cost more than other treatments, but factor in their many benefits when weighing treatment options. You’ll find that the benefits make the investment worth it. And remember, your smile can lead the way and open doors in your personal and professional life.

Some benefits of veneers to consider:

  • Short treatment time – two visits in most cases
  • Long lasting – up to 10 or 20 years with proper care and maintenance
  • Easy to care for – just like natural teeth
  • Minimally invasive – conservative preparation for teeth that will hold veneers
  • Corrects many imperfections – replaces the need for bonding, braces, teeth whitening, and dental crowns on front teeth
  • Look natural – modern veneers are thin and semi-translucent, so they look like natural tooth enamel

Modern Materials, Natural Look

Previous generations of dental veneers appeared bulky and unnatural. In fact, veneers were called “Chicklets” because of their tendency to look square and bulky, like the chewing gum of the same name. Dental materials have come a long way since that time, and today, veneers are made very thin and very strong. Less natural tooth structure is altered prior to placing veneers, and because of special layering techniques, they reflect light similarly to natural tooth enamel.

Placing Porcelain Veneers

For most patients, the veneers procedure is completed in two office visits, after the initial consultation and treatment planning appointment. At your first clinical visit, Dr. Johnson will prepare your teeth to be veneered by texturing the front surfaces. He’ll then take a dental impression and select the ideal shade for your veneers. As a cosmetic and restorative dentist, Dr. Johnson believes that veneers should be placed on a healthy, solid foundation of good oral health. He will make certain that his veneers design for you promotes a balanced bite, so when your mouth is closed your upper and lower teeth will fit together well.

You will wear temporary veneers while your final restorations are fabricated. The temporaries may feel unusual at first. They are bulkier than the final product, but they look good in the interim until your final veneers will be ready. Some patients experience a period of lingual adjustment, when the tongue learns how to pronounce sounds properly. This only takes a few days, in most cases, but you should know that it’s completely normal.

Based on all the data he collects, a seasoned ceramist in our dental lab will handcraft your custom porcelain veneers. You’ll return to our office in a week or two, when Dr. Johnson will replace your temporaries with the final, permanent restorations. He will adjust the veneers, if necessary, to make certain your bite is balanced and the veneers look and feel natural. You will leave this second appointment with your new smile, and you’ll probably have a significant emotional reaction when you see how beautiful you look!

Caring for Veneers

Veneers are placed one per tooth, so you’ll be able to brush and floss teeth normally. No special tools or products are required to care for porcelain veneers. Simply brush twice, floss once daily, and visit Oracle Family Dental for your six-month checkups and cleanings.
