What are porcelain veneers?
Dental porcelain veneers are extremally thin porcelain teeth covers, produced in a lab according to accurate digital measurements. The veneers are securely placed on top of the front teeth, using a specially designated adhesive. The original front teeth need to be sanded lightly to allow for perfect appearance and performance of the veneers. This procedure provides a symmetrical and white smile, with fully functional teeth and without using dental implants.
The procedure of applying the porcelain veneers in pain free and doesn’t normally require any anesthesia. It's a great, fast and affordable choice for eligible patients that want the perfect smile.
Dental porcelain veneers such as those produced and installed in Dr. Fadie Khoury's Center for Dental Aesthetics and Implant Dentistry improve the appearance of your teeth and do not stain or discolor from the consumption of acidic beverages or smoking. Using the most advanced digital measurement and production technologies, we offer highly resistant and ultra-thin veneers.
What cases qualify for dental porcelain veneer procedure?
Dr. Fadie Khoury says that there are some clinical cases that are best suited for a dental porcelain veneers procedure to straighten and whiten the teeth. These include:
- Closing gaps between front teeth
- Rebuilding broken front teeth
- Teeth whitening and incidents of heavy teeth stains
- Smile design for crooked and non-symmetrical teeth
- Simple Orthodontic problems that don't require substantial medical intervention
In order to assess whether a patient is suitable for a dental porcelain veneers procedure we perform a series of tests and accurate digital measurements. If the answer is yes, then the procedure is fast, painless and with few visits to the clinic for treatment. Results are proven, and the veneers last for many years in perfect condition.
