Dental veneers require a permanent alteration of your natural tooth structure.
What Are Porcelain Veneers
In order to have the room needed to place your veneer, Dr. Charles Michael or Dr. Charles Spalding will need to reduce the front face of your natural tooth by the width of your veneer.
With the natural tooth shaved, Dr. Charles Michael or Dr. Charles Spalding will then etch the tooth, roughening the surface, to allow for better bonding with the cementing agent.
With the tooth now prepared, Dr. Charles Michael or Dr. Charles Spalding will place the veneer with the bonding agent. The bond is strengthened with the placement of a blue light to harden the cementing agent. Your veneer should last several years but will need to be occasionally checked and eventually replaced.
Preparing the tooth through reduction and etching is a normal part of the process for placing your veneers.
Recommending Porcelain Veneers
In the future, the patient can decide to either have new veneers placed or have the teeth covered entirely with dental crowns.
