Have you ever marveled at the near-perfection of a celebrity’s smile? Their secret is often porcelain veneers. Patients across Buhl, Kimberley, Hailey, and Jerome can get the same red-carpet treatment at Cress Dental in Twin Falls.
A dental veneer is a custom-crafted porcelain laminate. It is precisely designed by your dentist and fabricated by a ceramist at a dental laboratory. The veneer is bonded to the front of a tooth (it also covers the edge and wraps around the back a bit) to enhance aesthetics. Just one tooth may be veneered, but most often all the upper front teeth that show when you smile are treated, for uniformity. Veneers may also be placed on anterior teeth in the lower arch.
The process takes just two dental visits. At the first, teeth are prepared. A tiny amount of enamel is removed, and teeth may be shaped a little. After impressions are taken, teeth may be protected with temporary composite veneers. You return for placement when the lab sends final veneers. Temporaries are removed, tooth surface is conditioned to ensure a tight bond, and veneers are cemented in place.
