Dr. Perle was wonderful, knowledgeable, and he showed true concern for my well being. I had a broken tooth that became severely infected overnight and I needed emergency surgery. Without even knowing who I was, he met up with me on his day off to take care of it. His staff was great as well. I had an issue with my card and the front desk called the company for me to fix the issue.
Veneers have become a buzzword and for good reason. Simple, fast and painless, your smile can become movie star perfect in 2 dental visits.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are often referred to as “Instant Orthodontics”. Think you need braces? A substantial aesthetic effect can be obtained with a veneer and minimal tooth preparation is required.
A dental veneer is a thin layer of synthetic material (porcelain or composite) that is bonded to the tooth’s surface. Veneers are a great alternative to otherwise painful dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.Common problems that Veneers will address:
- – Spaces between the teeth
- – Broken or chipped teeth
- – Permanently stained or discolored teeth
- – Crooked or misshapen teeth
Veneers are applied to the teeth in 2 visits to the dentist:
# 1 Veneer Preparation: The teeth are prepared by removing 0.3 to 0.5 mm of enamel (the thickness of a fingernail) to allow room for the veneer layer. An impression of the teeth is taken and sent to the specialized dental laboratory that will create the veneers.
#2 Veneer Bonding: Bonding involves all the steps that permanently attach the veneer to the tooth. After a cleaning of the tooth, the veneer is bonded to the tooth with a special dental cement. This dental cement is then hardened with an ultra violet light.
