Do you wish you could easily get a makeover for your smile? Porcelain veneers may be the answer you’re looking for. These thin, porcelain shells are shaped to look like teeth that we simply attach them to the fronts of your natural teeth to improve their appearance.
The procedure isn’t invasive and can instantly fix multiple smile appearance issues at once. In fact, many Hollywood celebrities have veneers to thank for their perfect smiles.
The porcelain veneers procedure is fairly simple and takes place over the course of two appointments.
Consultation: At your consultation, Dr. Haque will evaluate your teeth and smile to determine if porcelain veneers are the best choice for you. While veneers can make a major difference, some people may require other treatments or there may be another option that’s better suited for your individual concerns.
Preparing Your Teeth: If porcelain veneers are how you’d like to proceed, Dr. Haque will prepare your teeth. This involves taking off a minuscule amount of tooth enamel on the teeth that will receive veneers — we do this so the veneers will look natural when placed on your teeth. Dr. Haque will then take an impression of your teeth to create your custom porcelain veneers and you’ll receive temporary veneers until they’re ready.
Permanent Veneers: Once they’re ready, Dr. Haque can place your customized porcelain veneers. He will remove the temporary veneers and firmly attach the finished ones. Your veneers can last for 5 to 15 years with proper care.
